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.

Very basic brown ale. Nice if you can show-off that you can afford a premium import but rather dull otherwise...

A very basic, clean and edgy taste. Its fairly smooth and for a beer that is so produced this one isn't half bad, but I'll always try a new micro-brew brown before buying this.

Ordered this beer without any previous knowledge of it. Found it to be a pleasant surprise. Nice substance to it.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 One of my early favorites that I've ignored for a long time. Not as full bodied or complex as most microbrewed brown ales but still does a good job. Sweet, nutty, fruity, lightly dry finish. Maybe it's not the great beer I thought it was in my pre-rate beer days but I have to admit to being pleasantly surprised by my latest tasting.

Good nut taste with a nice crisp flavor. A little skunk in the aroma. Very drinkable.

Newcastle is one of my favorite beers. It's a great brown ale, a little bit pricey, but's it worth it. Very drinkable, very smooth and great to have any time of year.

An above average ale with a good taste and an average aftertaste............
