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_Osprey (2215) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. The expected brown colour, slightly hazy, small white head. Aroma is light, molasses, malty sweet. Body is medium, slightly foamy, light carbonation. Taste is tangy toffee malt, light bitterness. Nothing offensive about it, it’s fine.

Milter (85) - Nyborg, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2015
Mørk brun med hvitt medium skum. Grei aroma av karamell og litt sukker. Aroma av noe karamell og en syltynn bitterhet. Meget tynn konsistens. Vannaktig smak. Uinteressant.

Bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a frothy somewhat lasting beige head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of cereal, hay, sulfur rich hot springs. Very lightly bitter, faint flavor of caramel and stronger of shot firecrackers, average carbo, thin body and a very brief very light bitter finish.

All sorts of packaging. I was younger and this brew was better 15 years ago. Turned out to be macro brown ale, which became flatter, thinner and duller. I used to love it. Now I just by it once or twice a year to reminiscent old times when I was drinking it. Can is always better. Tap is above can in most cases. Clear bottle is often rancid and metallic.
