Newcastle Brown Ale was first brewed in 1927 in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England, by Jim Porter after three years of development. Production moved from Newcastle to Gateshead at the end of 2004 and to Tadcaster on closure of the Dunston brewery in 2010.

On tap. Small head that quickly dissolved. Copper body. Carbonation. Decent lacing. Smooth taste, but it was also thin and watery. Better from a bottle than on tap. This would have had a much better rating had it been in a bottle. Oh well.

I've had this many times before, but I just figured i'd write up a review for this beer. A good overall beer, very thin body with a slightly watery taste, but nothing in comparision to the watery crappy beers of Saranac. A good one to try that you can find at almost every supermarket or specialty store. If you have already had the other good ones you can find just about anywhere (boddington's, bass, guinness) try this one.

From bottle. Aroma and flavor dominated by burnt nuts, weak flavor, thin body, tastes watered down. Maybe its better on tap, but there's plenty of better brown ales around either way.

Good color and stuff. the smeall made me think it was kinda nutty, but it had more caramel characteristics. it was pretty good but it had an "eh" aftertaste.

I drink Newcastle often. Smooth taste, Not to filling, slightly bitter, when on draft it tastes watered down.

This is not a bad beer. So when one says that it means it is not a great one either. From the bottle it falls short. Nice coppery colour, but a bit lacking in both hop aroma and malt presence. It might be pasteurised but its pasthepalate that counts.

Lovely malty aroma. Very smooth taste. Nice malty overtones. Just a little bit too 'mashy' is the only downside I can think of. I may just get another...

One of my all time drinking favorites, I only really like it on tap though, have had some bad experiences with the bottled variety.

This beer *could* be good...it's just too damned watered down! It has a nice aroma, good appearance, decent flavor, nice palate, but just too damned weak. The head is rather measely and no lace, either. Not bad for mass produced, though, it's not exactly cheap.

Aroma is better than most, color is good, although the head is almost non-existant. Taste of alcohol shoots through the watered down taste, but nothing is too terribly wrong. A little skunkiness, probably due to poor handling (purchased in a hick grocery store) and the clear bottle.
