12 ounce (354 ml) bottle poured into a glass. this was the "new version" of NCBA btw brewed in the states for Lagunitas brewing (California & Illinois) as opposed to the UK made product which is evidently no longer available.
the label art is still cool. The beer itself is lighter in colour since they no longer use caramel colouring. Very slight grain or barely smell. slightly sweet in taste but not horrible. feel in the mouth was typical. overall not bad. is there a better beer? sure but then it becomes splitting hairs lol.
p.s.: the beer is not listed on the lagunitas website nor could i find a date on the bottle
p.s.s.: questions were directed to heinekenusa interesting enough.

12oz bottle. Brewed and bottled by Lagunitas Brewing. No dating information found.
Ruby brown colored body. One thin finger of off white/khaki colored head, and this becomes bubbly islands and a ring. Leaves a few scattered strings of lacing.
Aroma of lightly roasted malts, which seem sweet, and fruity hops.
Taste is sweet roasted malts, with a touch of caramel and nuts. Low bitterness, and the hops express a general fruity flavor. More caramel malts in the aftertaste.
Thinner than medium mouth feel. Slight minerality. Good carbonation.
A sweet malt beer that can be sessioned.

Heineken 'Newcastle Brown' @ 4.7% , served from a 6pack of 330 ml bottle's
A-pour is a light brown from the bottle to a dark brown/amber in the glass with a medium size light creamy tan head leaving a fine spotty lace ring along the pint
S-roasted nuts
T-caramel malt , bit of a watery finish
MF-ok carbonation , medium body , kinda filling
Ov-not a great pub beer , but I could see myself drinking some playing darts or billiards

poured from a 12oz bottle into a FFF pint glass. pours brown with ruby red edges and a khaki colored foam head. heavy malt on the nose and taste. nutty with a slight hint caramel. easy drinking with a full mouthfeel. haven’t had one of these in years and while this bottle was brewed by Lagunitas, it still reminded me of the old bottles i used to consume as an early twenty something kid.
