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.

Bottle from de Albert Heijn. The beer is amber colored and has an unstable cream colored head, with average carbonation. The aroma is earthy, sweet from the caramel and some hints of roasted malts are noticable. The taste is smooth and complex, with hints of coffee and grains, to change into a light and sharp bitterness from the malts. The finish is sharp, watery and short. Nothing special, little watery taste but well drinkable.

Average English beer. Exactly what you expect it to be. Drinks fine, not one to return to.

Icedwarf (687) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - APR 12, 2015
Helder bruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is licht zoet, caramel en dropachtig, verder wat waterig. Smaak blijft niet lang hangen. Niet slecht, goed te drinken, maar ook niet bijzonder, standaard bier.

Probably the style, one of the worst beers i have tried. Reminded me of dirty water running down the street. I prob dont like brown ale.

Bottle. Big off-white head with moderate retention. Clear and transparent dark amber colour (English tea colour). Weak aroma with some toffee and slightly malty. Weak taste, toffee, slightly toasted malt and some almond hint. Very light body with watery palate. Very low carbonation and no bitterness at all. Extremely soft beer, for me.

Beautiful nutty brown appearance, with some head that disappears quickly. Taste of caramel and nuts with sweet undertones.
