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.

With so many good beers around, you won’t ever find me picking up a 6-pack of Newcastle. That being said, there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s a simple brown ale, with medium body and mild maltiness.

In the U.K this is a good beer. In the U.S. it’s usually really bad. If the sun or heat get to this beer it will skunk in a matter of hours or even minutes. I completely disagree with the ’shelf life’ comment in the COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION. This is probably in the reasoning for putting that comment in there. Hope you had agood one!

Great color, somewhat thin but distinctively smokey flavor and I thought it had a better head than seems to be the general consensus here. I was worried about the clear bottle leading to skunk city but that wasn’t the case at all.

I have to go against the popular vote here, and say I actually love Newcastle. I think of all the brown ales out there, this is still probably my favorite, even if it mass produced.

Nut brown, smallish head. Rather sweet, somewhat nutty, medium bodied, rather low bittterness. Not very complex, but for a massproduced beer it is not bad.

Pretty overrated. Very small head, mild nuttiness. If you arent pairing this with food dont bother. Cheap glass.

Head is nothing special, but a great aroma, nice color and a nutty taste which is a great compliment with food. Sweet without being overpowering and quite easy to drink. Of course, the tap version outshines the bottle, and there are more flavorful brown ales, but this one is good nonetheless.

Good brew. Kinda missing something in the palate dept. Very smooth, lacking the hopiness that I like. It has a deep color with a nice foamy tan head. There is next to no aftertaste with this beer which is a nice change from most brews.
