As Newmans Red Castle Cream. On cask at The Brynffynon Hotel, Llanwonno. Pours red brown with light froth head. Quite malty for a red ale so a little disappointing. I expected more spice in this style of beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep copper and amber coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of nice malt, a touch of nuts and a bit of toffee. Medium-bodied; Creamy, malty taste with some cardboard, chocolate and a light hop taste. Aftertaste clean and only showing a little malt, some alcohol, but mostly a dry finish. Overall, a nice Irish diversion, but not as good as Galway Hooker (which I also had at the restaurant). I sampled this pint on draught at Bull & Castle in Central Dublin, Republic of Ireland on 20-February-2009.

Hand pulled cask at the Moon and Sixpence (JDW) Hatch End. Amber/red with a thick white collar. Sweet toffee malts with a slight burnt edge, which masks the meagre hop profile. The good condition saved this one, a warm flat half at a festival would have struggled to make a 2.
