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.

Big head fades down to a quarter inch bubbly layer. The body is reddish brown. Smells of slight chocolate and rock-candy sweetness. More chocolate with a strong helping of maple syrup flavor on the tongue. Iíd much rater have a petes. Oh and I agree with some others who wrote about this beer. Newcastle gives hangovers every time I partake of it. Usually bad headaches.

One of my traditional widely available favorites. Super dark red color and stellar head. Smooth taste without any extremes; just a nice little aftertaste.

I used to like this beer a lot until I drank better brown ales. The aftertaste has me turned off lately.

A little better and more reliable than the potentially skunky clear bottle.

Good appearance, and had quite a few of these this summer and was much more impressed. They have no real flavors that stand out, itís a mild dark beer that what taste it has is really good. Iíll slam emí.

This beer wins me over by its pure drinkability (if thatís a word). You can get it at most bars, usually being your best option among a variety of American piss macro-brews. Sweet malt flavor supported by a minimum hop bitterness. Its not the most unique or complex beer, but its good and its reliable.

Available at most bars, resturants, and Minor League Baseball team games.Low on carbonation, yet somewhat flavorful. Nothing offensive and nothing spectacular either, Lots of people like these, then again those people have usually been drinking Budweiser, & Liteís, & other Macro brews. This is a definite step up from them.This one is a little on the Mild side for me.

Iíve probably had a keg of this stuff over the years. Nice flavor without any bitter taste or distractions on the palate (if thats what your in the mood for).

BruceLeroy (111) - North Dakota, USA - AUG 20, 2002
Somewhat flavorful, but a little weaker than I like em. Not much carbonation. 4.7% alcohol? I thought an ale was supposed to have at minimum 5%? (which is still very weak) Oh well. This one is very refreshing, but definately not a winter warmer. No head to speak of. Overpriced. Too bitter!
