COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Occasional.
Latterly the brand was under the ownership of AB InBev and brewed under contract at Camerons. Axed by AN InBev in 2009 but reappeared as a Camerons seasonal "guest ale" for March to May 2013. Apparently now under the ownership of a company called Limelight Brands Limited, which has a link with Camerons through a common director.

It’s back! A North East classic now available as a guest ale throughout March and April via Camerons Brewery. Castle Eden Ale is a light, creamy golden ale with a late addition of Styrian Goldings hops giving it an interesting contrast between an initial sweet surge of flavour followed by a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Cask in the Chequers Micropub, Beverley. Amber with a white head. A little bit of fruity flavour and some caramel too. mostly this is thin and watery and lacks character and real flavour.

Cask at the Head of Steam, Durham. Gold to amber body with a white head. Nose is wet cardboard, red fruit, floral. Sweet. Dry finish. Soft mouthfeel. Not as good as it used to be, and actually quite a disappointment.

500ml can poured a pale amber color with a big white creamy head that settled with some decent lacing. Aroma is grainy with some hops. Taste is light malty sweet with an agressive hop bitterness. A decent bitter with a light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - OCT 14, 2011
First tasted this in the Bar Point, Paisley in May 1989. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thick white head. Strange metallic note in the short aroma. Creamy but thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts deliver a fiery digestive malt base with tart redcurrant fruit. Really strong metallic flavour from the tart hop resins in the long aftertaste. Almost smokey nicotine flavour from the dry tart finish. Struggle with this for a session as the astringency builds up in the mouth, drying you out.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2008
Cask conditioned at Cockney Pub, Århus
Copper color, poor head. It has a light apple aroma. Quite watery mouthfeel, with a little caramel taste and ordinary to sub-ordinary bitterness, still with a touch of apples. It reminds me the apple touch from homebrewing kits. Easy.

Cask at Cockney Pub, Århus. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with citrusy notes of hops. The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of citrus, but also light notes of metal, leading to a dry bitter finish.
