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.

Beautiful coppery body with medium-sized, mostly disipating head. Mild caramel nutty flavor with low hop bitterness. Decent brown, but too mild.

I really enjoy drinking this beer. Has a sweet chocolate/caramel taste and goes down extremely smooth.

Why is it that every time I drink a Newcastle, I feel like I'm eating a Heath candy bar? I like the taste, but it's almost too sweet. It goes down easy and is enjoyable, but Bells Best Brown is much better.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - MAR 30, 2003
Deep amber colour, no trace of head. Caramel and nuts in the aroma. The flavour is too mild, with some sweet notes (caramel) and a little sourness. Weak nut finish. It seemed very watery to me. Not a terrible beer, but simply it has no character.

Not bad...crisp clean taste and beautiful color. Very good beer to have your newbie beer tasting friends try...

Bottle. Clear copper color with a moderate light tan head. Heavy caramel aroma with a hint of hops and english ale yeast. Quite fizzy. Caramel and floral hops flavors with a somewhat biting acidity. Bitterness only comes out in the finish. Nothing extrordinary, but a very drinkable brown ale.

Definate maltyness, in the aroma and in the flavor, although the aroma is somewhat fruity while the flavor has more of a nuttyness. Somewhat golden brown in color. No head to speak of. Smooth and clean; goes down nice and easy. My first brown; I will definately be trying more.

Well as I said as I was rating the other Brown Ales is that this is becoming one of my favorite styls to try. I'm glad this isn't my first attempt at a brown ale. It smells tinny when poured, but has the nice brown tint to it. Taste is watery and is easily downed. As browns go this is a nice beginner, but doesn't hold a stick to Bells.

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2003
Better than I thought it would be. It had a reddish amber color without much head, a malty, roasty and a bit fruity aroma with flavors of malty caramel with some nuttiness. A good thirst quencher.

Pours a dark copper with good head. Decent malty balance with a slightly chocolate finish. Smooth and enjoyable, but not spectacular. Pretty good though for its wide availability.
