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.

This is a smooth drinking ale. Go out and purchase some and watch the Golden Girls

Nice brown color, off white head. Had this at a social gathering so I am rating this from memory.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2003 can be great, or skunky. used to love it, but i've found better browns since then. more partial to the "nut brown" beers.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - SEP 21, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2003 This one pours a clear brown color with a fizzy white head. Not very much head retention but it does leave some lacings on the glass. Faint malt aroma that is ever so slightly caramel like. Medium to thin bodied, with a slightly malty flavor and light, sweet finish. Not bad for a macro brew that uses adjuncts. Easy to drink in large quantities.

Overrated. The clear bottles and the trip over the Atlantic don’t help much.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2002
Light brown colour w/ soft, caramelly head. Slight fruitiness in the aroma. Medium-light body. Not overly flavorful but a moderate sweetness w/ nutty, winish notes. Is this beer over-rated? Certainly. But all in all not a bad brew.

An average beer. Not much that can be said about it that hasn’t been said before.
