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.

What happened? I used to really like this. Brown pour with reddish tint topped with an off white head. Aroma and taste is bready caramel, musty lemon and sweet malt. Barely average.

0,5l draft at Wesselstuen. Toasty with a nice undertone of yeast. Slightly metallic and old flavour that lowers the score.

Reddish brown with a medium head, caramel aroma. Sweet malty toffee taste, smooth with mild alcohol finish. Easy to drink.

Always worry about a beer that comes in a clear bottle from way over the other side of the world. Somehow it is fine. Dark amber colour (just like the picture because it is a clear bottle!). One finger of white foam head. Good lacing. Really sweet. Never had a beer like this before - you can just taste malt, malt and malt but it isn’t as deep as an Abbey Tripple. It is just unique - a light bodied beer with so much sweet malt. What IPA does for hopp lovers this does for malt. Food matched with a slow roasted lamb shoulder and it went well - the beer was able to hold it’s own against the strong flavours and the caramel sweetness was a match for the savoury gamey meat.

Newcastle to me is a confusing beer, sometimes it can be a really soild, decent brew. Other times it is awful, in my my opinion this is one of the most inconsistent beers on the market. Hard to put a score on this one but when its good a 3 to 3.5 when its not its maybe a 2."

Draught. Brown with a reddish tint, small creamy beige head, faint caramel aroma, low carbonation, slightly sweet caramel taste, full body, balanced medium bitter finish. Very smooth as expected.

Color is something in between Coke and Nestea: reddish brown. Short-lived thin head. Aroma is caramel, vanilla and tea leaves. Light, watery, soft. Ends with some bitterness and a sweet hint.
