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.

One of my favorites. Clear brown in color with a decent off-white head. Leaves pretty good lacing. Light aroma of sweet malt and maybe toffee. Taste-wise, its one of the smoothest beers all the way through. Sweet and nutty with absolutely no bitterness. Easy to drink and easy to enjoy.

Kauge (1706) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2017
Bottle from a local shop, Tallinn. BB 31.07.2017. Pretty bad stuff, not sure why I got this. The kind of stuff that makes you wanna go brush your teeth. Caramelly sweet, watery, dryish shallow hoppy finish. Note: label says it includes heat-processed wheat, glucose syrup and food colouring.

dlihcsnatas (666) - Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2017
Brown with small fast fading head and the aroma of caramel along with that funk that beers in green and clear bottles get after sitting in the light. It has been years since I had drank this and now I know why I hadnt been buying it. Lacking in flavor and thin watery light beer. Not horrible but not something I am going to run out and buy again for maybe another 5+ years.

ignorant (113) - madrid, SPAIN - DEC 7, 2016
brown, transparent and without any turbidity. White foam with beige swivel with creamy consistency. Light odor to malt, biscuits and caramel. The taste is smooth and watery, with notes of toasted cereal, caramel, slightly fruity and spicy. Balance between sweet and bitter soft with a short and dry finish. Light body pulling medium with slightly oily feeling. Low carbonation

Grumpelmies (145) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2016
Bottle. Transparent brown. Not much of a head nor aroma. Caramell, malts, Toffee, nuts, a light dose of hops and all around sweet. Makes me think Im having a lemonade. Watery. Super easy drinking. Nevermind my low rating, this certainly is not the best brown ale out there but nevertheless I really enjoy drinking this.

felsenpils (162) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 6, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear light brown with an off-white head. The aroma is full of English ale esters, very close to Belgian, but just a bit different. This is the first cousin to De Koninck from Antwerp. The flavor is very clean with the malt and esters dominating over a very subdued bitterness. The bottle suggests that you drink the beer cool, but the flavors really come out when you let the beer warm up a bit. Note also the lower level of carbonation with no CO2 bite. All in all, a very subtle English ale with a lot to offer, but you need a pretty refined beer palate to appreciate all the nuances. The brewery claims that it is no longer using caramel color, but rather roasted malts to produce this brown ale. That is also very positive as the more natural, the better.

Antzrhere (116) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2016
Pours clear brown. Aroma is metallic and spicy. Taste is quite smooth, creamy, malty, nutty with a spicy aftertaste. Not bad, best drunk warm, not cold as the bottle tells you to

mabuzzer (653) - Hamilton, SCOTLAND - NOV 18, 2016
550ml bottle. Pours clear, nutty brown with a fluffy off white head. Malty, slightly metallic aroma, taste is caramel, a little herby, sweet. Very drinkable, if nothing exciting
