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.

Served too cold but when it warmed up was probably a touch better than in the bottle. Also picks up an extra Overall point because of cool live band playing at the time (ie my sons funk-rock band)
First rating April 23 2002 This beer brings back many memories than it has taste. I canít understand why the one I have in Newcastle last month tasted so much better than this one (in Belgium)?

Itís all over the place at a premium price, so it must be great, right? Itís not. Itís OK. I canít even pick out anything worth commenting on. Anyway, there are too many other options at this price to drink any more of this.

Pours with average carbonation and medium sized head. Aroma is somewhat neutral with hints of caramel. Flavor is slightly grainy and slightly malty. Very drinkable.

Was my first brown ale and will always be a sentimental favorite. Good beer, watch out for skunk.

Aurelius (4107) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2002
This is one of the most variable beers that Iíve ever seen. Sometimes almost like alt -- grainy/cherry flavored. Sometimes not. Aroma is slightly laced with sulphur. Aroma and flavor are grassy, grainy. Perhaps a wee bit smokey. Wisps of berry flavor. Thinnish palate, but smooth, smooth. Clean drinking and decent brown ale. This is often the best thing that you can get, and itís a better choice than American mass-production stuff. Beware the clear bottle, because youíll occasionally get a real skunky six.

NOt as good as on tap. Some nice balance in the malt and haps. Not too bitter. Smooth, but not excedingly so.

I have always liked Newcastle. Although since I moved to Colorado, and then got corrupted by Ratebeer.com, I have found better beers, I am sticking to my original rating for both bottles and draught. Plus I can get it on tap at my local dive bar for $1.50 every day from 3-6pm.

Strong brown sugar aroma. Taste & texture is very light & watery. Only slight bitterness. Too weak for me, smells good tastes poor, definitely overrated

Yes, I agree this is the one and only. This is very good. Did I mention it is as smooth as a babies behind. The only better is the brown ale I brew myself at home.
