Celt Experience Celt Castell Coch


Brewed by Celt Experience
Caerphilly, Wales
Style: Premium Bitter/ESB | Ratings: 21 | Alcohol: 4.7%
Cask; Regular.
Previously known as Newmans Red Castle Cream.
Castell Coch, or "Red Castle" is named after the castle known as a romantic folly near Caerphilly. It was built upon the remains of a genuine 13th century castle, all built of rough rubble sandstone from which the building took the name Castell Coch. The beer is red-copper coloured with a cream firm head. Aromas are nutty and malty with weetabix and chocolate. Raisins with some bready yeast. Mellow lemon with some lactose. Flavours are sweet chocolate malts with caramel and fresh melon fruit. Nice lemon sharpness and a good level hopping.
