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.

Browny amber colour and a little head, A traditional old english style beer with a slight stout like smell and taste. Some caramel aftertaste if concentrated on but nothing too pleasant or appreciated, A rough/gritty beer that packs a punch with a bit of flavour coming through overall

Cor de cobre escuro e brilhante, com espuma levemente bege de baixa/média formação e permanência de apenas uma fina camada com lacing razoável; Aroma maltado de pão-doce, caramelo e frutas cristalizadas; Sabor de início de caramelo e nozes, evoluindo para um final amargo e seco equilibrado; retrogosto levemente doce e de nozes com presença de leve amargor; Corpo médio e média carbonatação. Cerveja refrescante e de ótima drinkability.

Pours dark brown with regular head which falls apart quickly. Aroma is not very compelling, metal and mud. Taste is very metallic, wih unpleasant yeast flavor. After taste is just bad. Not undrinkable but quite close!

I love it. It’s a great beer that is full of flavor and leaves a nice after taste.

I used to have a Newkie brown back in the day, before I knew better, and choices were slim. It is red-brown in color, light in body and flavor. Clear bottles are always a bad idea. It is not exactly a good representation of English Ales, even though they are lighter in flavor than what craft beer drinkers are used to. The folks in Newcastle Upon Tyne were having a laugh when they exported this. Cheers mate!

Pours like guiness but a bit lighter. Small head. Has the dark taste to it but not overwhelming. A good medium between a dark and light beer
