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.

Somewhat flavorful, but a little weaker than I like em. Not much carbonation. 4.7% alcohol? I thought an ale was supposed to have at minimum 5%? (which is still very weak) Oh well. This one is very refreshing, but definately not a winter warmer. No head to speak of. Overpriced. Too bitter!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2003 Not that bad, but nothing special. I think it's over-rated. It's just an average brown ale.

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2003 Although not my top rated beer, probably the beer I have drank the most in the past and still a favorite when nothing better is available. The color is a dark amber brown topped with a thick head. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a hint of hops. The flavor is a well balanced sweet malt flavor with a slightly hoppy finish.

Had this beer for the first time in a restaurant. Taste is smooth. Wouldnít buy this on a regular basis, though.

Nothings special here. I expected more to be honest but with little flavor and little boldness it was just pretty flat like the head on the beer.

Very average brown ale. Hate the clear bottles. A bit nutty and some bread notes. It is a bit lighter in body than it looks. Overall just not very impressed.

being merely the # 365th rater of this product, iím sure i can bring to readers huuuuuge new insight by observing with great cunning and perspicacity that itís amber and kinda malty. yuh. it IS pretty in a glass, with itís woody tones and a head bubbling like a crepe on the griddle. it donít do no fancy back flips in terms of aroma: just your clean and basic íbetter than bassí english session ale with a kind of a cake donut vanilla sweetness. iím tasting it beside a slightly expired left hand deep cover brown which has a damp, autumn lawn bag aroma, so suddenly the newcastle seems all the better. sweet, smooth, parsimonious hop. takes three of these puppies to get a buzz tho.
