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.

fiulijn (21214) - 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.

Ungstrup (38383) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 16, 2008
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.

From cask at Charlies, as Camerons castle eden ale. Pours clear and golden orange with a little off-white head. Light fruity and caramel malt. Flavour is light fruity with a solid acidic edge. Ends with a mild fruity note.

shoestring (427) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - FEB 11, 2008
Absolutely fabulous. Suited my palate to a tee. All my favourites were in the mouth. Butter, fudge, molasses. Dry finish. Very creamy/oily palate. Extremely drinkable indeed.

2.9
Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
500ml bottle. Clear copper colour with no head. Aroma is sweet - caramel, vanilla and maybe a hint of oranges. Tangy flavour with sweet malt balancing the hops. Rather too flat for my liking and somewhat bland. Not as good as the old cask stuff I remember drinking in Cambridge in the 1990s.

3.2
