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.

Newcastle brown ale is a nice beer, with a nutty taste and smooth draw. I still order it from time to time at the pub and although not my favorte, it does rank up there with the better beers.

I used to drink this years ago when I was underage. I remember it having a kind of smoky taste, with a touch of nuttiness to it. Maybe because I'm older now (much), it's lost its thrill. I found it kind of flabby, to be honest, and a bit on the flat side.

Newcastle is ok. Can be drunk anywhere, anytime. I prefer Rogue's Hazelnut or, if not available, Sam Smith's Nut Brown.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 Nice brown color with anutty taste. I like the after taste it leaves. A great beer to try if you like bass and guiness.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2003
Light brown color with minimal head, no lacing, thin-to medium body. Hints of hazelnut, caramel, and watermelon. Somewhat floral aroma. Malty flavor, somewhat sweet, with a hint of rye. Dry finish with lingering malty aftertaste. Very average brown, minimal complexity.

Nice brown color, foamy head. Very light on flavor as brown ales go, drinkable. I've noticed in the past that a lot of bottled Newcastle get a rusty aftertaste. This one is good though. A hint of caramel. One of the better mass produced beers that is easy to find just about anywhere.

Lizabeth (360) - east falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 14, 2003
Rich brown color, creamy off white head. Aromas of malt, caramel, vanilla, and hazelnuts entice one to take a sip. The flavor is full and undeniably malty, with caramel and molasses notes in the forefront. A smooth, easily drinkable beer.

A nice brown ale, there is a nut finish, which makes it go down good. I've had best luck out of the bottle.

Has a nice brown color and a nice slightly bitter taste if possible you should try the draft of this although the bottled one is good as well

Medium brown color with golden patches in the light. This is probably the beer that was my transitional beer to the "good" beer world. I remember it tasting better on tap, or was I just drunk! Lighter bodied than I remember.
