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.

The aroma isnít as strong as I would like. It pours amber with a white head that does produce some lacing. It has a bit too much carbonation for my taste which takes away from the malted flavors and overall experience.

"pretty standard here-somewhere between a macro and micro in flavor and quality. good malty, nutty nose and flavor. no balance. iíll drink a free one, but I donít buy this beer if there are micros offered."

Procent (125) - POLAND - OCT 20, 2014
W smaku słodowe, lekko chmielowe, lekko owocowe karmelowe oraz delikatne nuty jakby od oranżady. Trochę diacetylu też wyczuwalne. Barwa rubinowa przechodząca w lekki brąz. Piana niewielka, ale z lacingiem. W smaku słodowe, lekko orzechowe, delikatnie karmelowe, lekko kwaskowe, także lekki diacetyl. Goryczka bardzo niska, wysycenie wysokie, pełnia w ustach średnia. Goryczka zdecydowanie za niska a wysycenie za wysokie, ale w warstwie słodowej nie jest złe. Warka do 30.04.2015r.

Reviewed On: (5/21/14): *Glassware: Nonic Pint *Serving: 12 oz *Aroma: caramel, nuttiness, bready/cracker *Appearance: Deep amber with a white one finger head, that receded quickly. Lacing was sticky at the top of the glass, but did not lace the entire glass. *Taste: Caramel upfront, nuttiness in the middle, and a bready taste at the end. *Palate: Light body, watery mouthfeel, average carbonation. Finishes semi-dry. *Overall: This beer is overpriced for what it is. Regardless, it is very easy drinking and sessionable. I would not seek this out for everyday drinking, because its rather dull. However, if its late at night, when all the craft beer stores are closed in my area, I would easily go to a local gas station, and pick up a pint.

AdiBeer (1365) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Aroma: intense caramel malts, toffee, bread. Appearance: hazy brown, small, beige head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: sweets continue, very malty, heavy caramel, soft carbonation. Overall: not very subtle, quite in your face sweet, too malty, yet not that unpleasant to drink. Can aboard American Airlines flight LHR to JFK.

One of my go to beers when the place doesn't have a great selection. A classic. You should all stop hating on it just because its not a craft beer.

A classic beer that provides full bodied flavour in a low(ish) alcohol content brew.

Light tasting ale with a honey, maple and very light malt flavor. Clean finish similar to a lager.
