For years this has been an old standby for me. If there wasn't anything more than Bud, etc to choose from a Nooky would be my choice. My tastes have moved on now, but that's not to say I don't like it anymore. This is just a very average beer that was probably the cat's meow back in the day when it first was brewed and it won all those awards. It's an oldy but goody. I'd never turn one down, but I won't go out of my way for it either.
My review: Yep, it's brown. Little off white head. Smell brings up a little hop/malt mix neither very strong and same with the taste. It's a middle of the road blend, on my tongue anyway. Not huge on taste. The carbonation and long lasting unpleasant aftertaste has been what's bothered me about Newcastle as of late. But having said that, I could pound one after another after another of these in a sitting.

On tap in a bar in Quartier Dix30.
Appearance is the best looking part with an obvious brown body and good enough head that has a bit of cascading to it. Flavor is decent, mild nuttiness, easy drinking but pretty ordinary obviously. Still, an ok selection.

I love the tone. I really like the fact that it has the initial Heineken smell, I also love Heineken. However this beer does not have the heavy aftertaste. I do wish it were a little more potent ;)
Overall I would stock it. There are MANY beers around that Id pass up for this one. I am not into the IPA format. I prefer stout. But I love how smooth this beer drinks.
