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.

Overall good ale, more o winey taste than others of this style. I think itís better from the bottle than tap. Has gotten way to expensive with popularity.

A wonderful looking brown ale, but not the best of its style. Despite the appearance, the flavor leaves you wanting. Its not that its BAD, it just ISNíT, by and large. I also have a thing against any beer that comes in a clear bottle.

Very basic brown ale. Nice if you can show-off that you can afford a premium import but rather dull otherwise...

A very basic, clean and edgy taste. Its fairly smooth and for a beer that is so produced this one isnít half bad, but Iíll always try a new micro-brew brown before buying this.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 One of my early favorites that I've ignored for a long time. Not as full bodied or complex as most microbrewed brown ales but still does a good job. Sweet, nutty, fruity, lightly dry finish. Maybe it's not the great beer I thought it was in my pre-rate beer days but I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by my latest tasting.

Good nut taste with a nice crisp flavor. A little skunk in the aroma. Very drinkable.
