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.

Overall, a nice beer. A little thin-bodied, but nicely flavored. The aftertaste is quite complex and interesting.

Bottle. Oxidised and metallic aroma. Nutty and toffee flavours. Thin but good carbonation level.

Nice, brown color with slight head. Mild malt flavor. Simple to drink, but nothing phenomenal. I like this beer when there aren't any microbrews available.

Nice strong malty, burnt toffee nose. Clear brown with a glimpse of white head that disappears quickly. Nice simple flavour balanced towards malt. Palate a wee bit thin with nice low carbonation. Never had a skunky one despite the clear bottle. Bottle (clear).

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2004
UPDATED: APR 9, 2005 This has a nice woody taste with mostly a little maltiness and nearly zero hops. It has a nice dark brown color and it is complex in a subtle kind of way. I dont have to be blown away with extreme flavors to be impressed. This is a subtle beer, one to start the night off with, but the flavors are there and they are fairly unique. The taste also varies wildly from situation to situation. This is an aspect of lower priced brews and its disappointing in that sense. Also, its quite a bit too watery.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle] Deep red color with thin white head. Not much of a distinctive aroma. Good crisp taste with little bitterness or aftertaste. Very easy to drink and very tasty.

monkeycmdr (18) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2004
Nothing particularly complex going on with this brew, but it's a solid beer, and it's often the best thing on tap, and brown ales are my favorite style. It has a nice color, which is probably its best feature; it's very drinkable and tastes good, although it's nothing spectacular, and the nose is nothing special either. A good solid beer, much better than most macros, but not world-class by any stretch.

IDogg (72) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2004 A wonderful beer that is great and different. Nice brown orange color with a good but not outstanding aroma. Taste is excellent, sweet and malty. Good strong aftertaste. A personal favorite of mine.

Foxbush (1968) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2004 Normal head formation but did not remain no lacing down the glass. Color was a deep amber that was very inviting. Taste was not malty or hoppy. It just was not very impressive. This was my second bottle and it was not very good.
