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.

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. I most of the time find browns kinda boring ad this on fits the bill perfectly. Tasted like a beer.

I found it kinda normal and unexciting. Not bad to drink if someone has it but I won't buy it.

Cloying, annoying, brown but fit for destroying. Idiot lager louts give this beer its only bouying.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2012 Light brown with a slightly tan head that disappears quickly. Doesn’t smell very good. A little sweet. 4/3/5/3/11 rerate: A long overdue rerate. I was too hard on this beer, years ago. It is a fine brown ale. Light malt and English yeast. Some caramel. OK palate, making it very drinkable. Really a gateway beer.

Bottled. Dark reddy brown colour, decent head. Nutty flavour but overall rather sweet and disappointing. Little of the alcohol is evident.

Dark amber color with a mild nutty flavor. A little stronger flavor would have made it better.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2003 On tap : Amber brown in color, nice creamy head with plenty of lacing. Sweet, nutty aroma. Somewhat wattery flavor and finish.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2003 Well, I can see why it gets its session beer status among the novice level. Its a scaled back, watered down good brown ale. Chestnut brown body with a foamy head. pretty translucent, as is the body. Some nuttiness, a sweet malty finish.

beerluvindave (194) - Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2003 Very good, straight from the bottle. Sweet and smooth with little aftertaste. Could be a bit thicker.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2003 A little watery in the flavoring but still a good grocery beer. I'll take Bass over it though.
