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.

Definitely a weak beer. Pours no head whatsoever, rather transparent and virtually flavorless. Not worth buying at the price. I canít believe anyone would even give it a decent rating. This is tops on my all-time most over-rated beers list.

Come on everybody. Refreshing yet flavorful. Bold yet unoffensive. Maybe Iím inexperienced but this is one of the best. Re-rate 6/15/02: After sampling a wide variety of beers recently, Iím not so sure that Newcastle carries the depth and character Iím after. I still like it, but itís suddenly a bit too sweet and weak.

This ale is a pretty brown color, but surprisingly clear; it looked almost like a lager. Given this, it is not surprising that it is rather light-bodied for a brown ale. The aroma was quite weak, and the head nearly non-existent. The taste is decent, but not particularly distinctive; slightly on the hoppy side, with hardly any nuttiness. An acceptable brew, but nothing special.

Not a very good example of an English Brown.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2002
Nice fruity butterscotch nose with low hop notes. Good head but overcarbonated. fruity flavour that bacomes almost banana like and finishes sweetly.

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 12, 2002
Malty aromas like an alt beer - musky. Color of rootbeer, clear. Small head with lacing. Smooth, light body, watery. A bit sweet, malty, and a little hops. Smooth, pleasing after. Nice brown ale, good for everyday drinking.

jcalbi (380) - Medford, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2002
Milk chocolate brown color with a consistent 1/2í whiteish head. Flavor of cocoa/chocolate with a rather cloying bitterness. When your other choices for the evening are Bud, Coors Light and Miller Lite one tends to be less critical.

Gorgeous amber-red body with an almond colored head. Unimposing flavor with a pleasant and inviting taste.
