COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available filtered and pasteurised in keg and bottle.
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.
In 2017 the beer was re-branded and production moved to the main Heineken Factory in Zouterwoude.

riggsfc61 (451) - Franklin, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2019 Found out of bottle. Clear brown with medium but short lasting head. Certainly malt forward. It's an okay option but their is certainly better options for the style for a similar price point.

snowcrash000 (549) - Cologne, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2019 Pours a clear, deep, dark mahogany coloration with a medium, creamy head. Smells of toasted, bready, caramel malt and a distinct nuttiness, with a hint of brown sugar. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by toasted, bready, caramel malt, although there are some light floral, herbal hops in there somewhere as well, with notes of roasted nuts, brown sugar, corn and a mild diacetyl butteriness. Finishes bittersweet, with a light bitterness and slightly unpleasant diacetyl/corn aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel with a light body and medium carbonation. This has some decent toasted, caramel malt notes and a good nuttiness to it, but really suffers from mild diacetyl and corn notes as well as a rather light and watery body. It's drinkable enough, but certainly nothing special.

Jow (4628) - Winter Garden, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2019 Inspired the easiest beers I haven’t rated thread grabbed from market. Can’t recall having before but I’m sure I did at some point in drinking career. More clear amber than brown. Nose is sweet toffee touch of nuttiness. Tastes of caramel, fig, nuts, malt and rootbeer. Watery and flat palate. No bitterness. Probably be another decade or so before revisiting.

MattShizzle (634) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2018 Bottle. Medium copper color, clear. Bread like aroma. Good. Some malt and roast flavor, but little in the way of hops.

2.9
DraftTun9 (33) - Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2018 Malty aroma. Pours amber with generous fizzy head which doesn't last. Bitter flavour with maltiness and a grassy aftertaste. Average beer. Not as good as I remember but not bad.

2.3
NordicV (3046) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2018 Brun öl med ljusbeige skum. Doft och smak av kola, malt, hö och lätt gräsighet.

alexmate (477) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2018 I've really fond memories of drinking this. I think it was probably the first ale I've ever tried. Not sure if the change of recipe has affected the taste, but it basically sweet toffee and caramel with a slightly bitter hoppy malty finish. I used to love this stuff now it is merely mediocre. It still seems to be a staple in rock clubs and the larger bottle size and logo are iconic.

rhoihessegold (3825) - Mainz, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2018 07-12-18 // tap at Yours sportbar Wiesbaden. Clear brown. English water with a malty sweetness. Caramel and toffee are mild. Solid.

3.3
Yarowind (185) - Moscow, RUSSIA - DEC 8, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2018 Темно-каштановое, прозрачное, пены почти нет. В аромате совсем чуть-чуть солода. Вкус приятный, но простоватый. Хороший вариант для любителей классики.

2.9
DraftSensei110 (99) - - NOV 30, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2018 Cerveza de cuerpo medio y carbonatación media. Tiene aroma a caramelo, toffee y malta. En boca es levemente amarga, y destaca la malta muy por encima del caramelo, el toffee y el lúpulo.
