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.

Another of those strange beers that I thought I’d rated a long time ago. Dirty brown in color with a small head, flavors ard drab and boaring. Not worth the effort of trying again.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Light armoa, some hops, nothing too complex. Malty hop like flavor and an unimpressive appearence. Went down slightly bitter with an overall good feeling. A little too underdeveloped for me.

Respectable head. Good aroma, appearance, and palate of a brown ale. Smooth, easy drinking, a good session beer. Recommended

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 5, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 16, 2005 re-rate, not as good as i once thought. Really sour, it may have been a bad batch, but maybe i just never noticed it before. Aroma was a big disappointment.

Newcastle is the all around great beer for the times when you can’t find a good microbrew. Always nutty and delicious. Good all around brew. I don’t rate it too high only because it seems so common.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2007 I like it. Newcastle gets too much grief in my opinion, for what I think is a drinkable beer. Warm, roasty, carameley flavor, with a slightly watery finish being the only drawback. Comfort beer.
