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.

rodbod (356) - Motherwell, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Bottle at the Iron Horse, Glasgow. Pours a dark amber, with a decent froth. Not much nose, just some nuttiness really. Taste is mild and sweet and nutty, not much bitterness. Clean finish. A decent beer, although on the bland side.

2.7
Grumbo (2827) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2017
Many bottles over the years, it was one of the beers which weaned me off lager 20+ years ago. These days only if there really is little to nothing else available. Pours mid brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, fruit, malt. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Medium to light body, slight watery texture. Not as good now as it was when it was brewed in Newcastle.

Bottle at the Crown Eastbourne. A classic that doesnt dissapoint. Mix between a tinny lager and a quality brown ale. Overall, very drinkable.

Not a real kicker at 4.7% abv. A bit thin, but man is it a smooth customer for a darker ale. Tame hop bite and roast with light malt, biscuit, and caramel.

very weak, no real kick to it feels almost watered down but if your not after anything heavy then this may suit

MattChiasson (71) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2017
Out of the 500mL can, poured a amber-brown, filtered clear, with a persistent white head. I got aromas of bread crust, toffee and raisin. On the palate, quite thin, some bready caramel malt notes, but very little impression of hops. Surprisingly light bodied with very short finish. Quaffable, but was expecting more to it.

Ive had beer from all over the world, but this is absolutely the best beer Ive ever had.

3.3
17Beer (340) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Malty aromas with a hops note. Pours a clear brown gold with a big tight white head and lots of lacing. A nice sour nutty flavor well balanced with short finish. Low carbonation and a slick mouthfeel. Very drinkable.
