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.

Nice beer. Very smooth. Not bitter. But VERY expensive. Not worth it on a regular basis.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 For the comercially marketed beer it is one of the better. Not bitter at all with a nutty taste. Not up to par with most other belgian ales such as Belhavens or a dozen others but pretty good none the less for a commercial beer.

Simple, one dimensional beer, but pleasent and easy to drink. Thie beers popularity is easy to understand, as this beer has a good flavor and does not require the imbiber to think too much. Aroma is malty sweet with a little bit of roasted nuts. Beer pours reddish amber brown with off white head that mostly diminishes. The flavor follows the aroma, malty sweet, rather one-dimensional. I must say the one dimensional malty sweetness is well done and the beer is extremely quaffable.

Tastes as if you mixed 1 part budweiser and 1 part some good nut brown. I know this sounds odd but it was what I tasted all the way through. Its very good if its all thats at the bar or bad liquor store but there are many better browns out there. The finish and the after taste are the best part of the beer, this is where the nice nut brown taste comes through.

It is a nice looking ale with a creamy head that lasts. An ale that is not to bitter or sweet, balanced. A good drop. cheers 'Ahm just gan doon the rood to tak the dog for a walk.'

2.7
The Etruscan (711) - Tuscany, ITALY - OCT 9, 2003
Beige creamy medium lasting head. Bright reddish-brown color. Aroma is balanced between malty and hoppy, with light nutty and alcoholic tones. Flavor is moderately malty with dried fruit notes, ending in a initially bitter finish turning into a moderately sweet one. Medium bodied.

LarsHolmer (113) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2003
A typical English Bitter Ale with all the hoppy flavours you can expect, but no surprises...

3.6
jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2003
Aroma is caramel and a bit smoked. Redish brown color, beige small head, good lace. Sweet, light smoked, caramel, nice hops. Bit dry finish.

2.4
ClarkVV (6940) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 6, 2003
Bottle. Pours a fairly clear brown with lots of golden tinges. Small to no head. Not much of a smell. Raisins? a little bit of malt. Begins lightly sweet and mildly astringent. Some raisin flavor detectable, and a tad bit of watery roasted barley. Thins out and there is still some malt flavor dominant. Hmm, not much going on. Boring, but not terrible.
