Poured from bottle to Newcastle glass the beer pours a rich dark brown color, translucent, with a small 1/2 finger cap, some retention and lacing. The aroma is a bit muted but consists of a distinct caramel malty sweetness, small earthen hops, and a nutty character. I would prefer a bit more volume as it's not bad just mild in nature. Similar the nose the beer starts and ends with the thick caramel malt sweetness with a light but noticeable earthy hop and mild bitterness. The nutty character provides a gentle yet fulfilling and balances everything out well. Finishes a bit watery and thin but crisp and clean. Lighter bodied. Overall, it's been a long time since I've had a Newcastle. This was more enjoyable than I remembered. The malty sweetness hit the spot!

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.
