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.

Velmi jemný brown ale s vanilkovým nádechem, jemným tělem, nižším řízem a jemnou krémovou pěnou. Uvítal bych zde plnější tělo i říz, pivo je podle mě až moc jemné a vytváří dojem zředěnosti.

rumore (1060) - Rimini, ITALY - APR 17, 2018
55cl bottle from Conad, in Rimini, Italy. Pours brilliant brown with limited white foam. Aroma is generic malty, not strong. Body is thin, with quite some carbonation, even too much. Taste is moderately sweet, with limited bitterness. Finish is short.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2018 Very nice caramel, brown sugar and slight roasted note well balanced flavour. Dark amber. Fast disappearing head and light body.

12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a crystal clear reddish brown with a thick off white head that leaves a very soapy lace as it falls down to a dirty dish water kind of ring. This isn’t that good. The aroma is very metallic and sharp. There is a hint of caramel and malt, but it’s just sharp and metallic. The flavor is a little better. More balanced malt and an earthy hop presence. This is just really out there. Not in a good way. The mouth feel is watery and very light with a sharper carbonation and a quick and metallic malt finish. This one is a no go. Ugh. 4 2 5 3 9

ebone1988 (2405) - Dearborn, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2018
Bottle shared with koleminer20. For the book. Aroma is skunky, metallic, earthy hops, somewhat nutty, not great. Appearance is brown, clear, thin light tan head. Taste is wheat, nutty, metallic, skunky, earthy hops, tastes better than it smells. Mouthfeel is light body, light crisp carbonation, metallic nutty wheat aftertaste. Overall, this isn't that great.

What ever changes they made to this Beer.. well very disappointed. It now has NO taste. Like Stale Watered down Beer. I have been drinking this beer for years, No more I will be changing the Beer I drink now. If I could I would rate this a big "ZERO"

Pershing (608) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2018
Clear brown poured into a dimpled mug with a decent head. Malt aroma with a smooth taste with some nut that is slightly sweet. Perfect amount of IBU's to bring out the malt. I wished this was still brewed in the UK. Don't seem right to be in Belgium now although it taste about the same as I remember from the past.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2018 Bottle from Crowne Plaza Hotel in Plymouth. Dark, golden brown with a white head. Aroma is earthy, yeasty and faintly citrus. The taste is light, crisp and refreshing with lemon and lime.

BudBlack (35) - GERMANY - JAN 19, 2018
(0,33l Dose) Dunkel-mahagonifarben mit beigefarbener Schaumkrone im Glas. In der Nase wenig malzig. Im Antrunk schwach malzig-karamellig, das Bier wirkt etwas alkoholarm, lässt sich aber auch leicht wegtrinken.
