Aroma; juicy, berries, malts, tannins, nice scents. Look; off white head, clear dark amber or copper body. Taste; juicy, berries, plums in malts, and nice blended finish. Feel; alright body, semi dry, soft co2. Overall; not bad at all, but should be enjoyed slowly. [[email protected]

330ml bottle picked up at Tuckers Maltings in Newton Abbot earlier this year. Shared with Finn and djoeye. A bubbly, low, beige head to a clear copper coloured body. Minimal lacing. Dried fruity nose, moments of herbs and leather. Sweet taste of berries and ripe citrus. sweet malt-fruity ending with warmth from the alcohol. Heavy drinking, slow sipper. Rather sweet in the long run. (Tromsø 01.08.2017). Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Bob cheers Bob. Consumed at home unusually having a beer or a Monday night but hey it is Loz’s birthday, Monday 14th November 2016 Pours mid amber with a hint of a reddiness, a few stray bubbles but no discernible head to speak of. Tangy, fruity and a little sour, not my thing, to be fair it’s not awful, but life’s too short to drink stuff like this, I don’t think that I can finish this is likely to be a drainpour.

Bottle shared at home as ’Castle Hung Drawn and Slaughtered’, 2012 vintage, 10%. Dark amber orange, clear, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is spirits, cabbage, gummy bears and copper pipe. A real mix. Body is smooth, low carbonation. Taste is a bit sweeter and fruitier with tangy marmalade, gummy bears and booze. Overall, it’s fine. Pretty much as expected!

Bottle shared at Daniels place. 20/02/2016. Many thanks to Daniel for this one. Bright orange amber coloured pour with a small halo of white head. Aroma is tangy orange, slightly musty, brown sugar, hot alcohol. Flavour is composed of tangy orange rind, slightly musty, hint of acid. Little brown sugar. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation, slight tangy. Actually not bad. Scopey (15704) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle at Richmondo, big thanks to Dirty Danny. It pours clear rich deep Amber with no head whatsoever. The nose is earthy, musty, dirty, leather, butterscotch, toffee, stewed orange, vegetables, gummy bears and over - ripe fruit. The taste is tangy orange, tangerine, candy, sticky, gooseberry, earth, gummy bears, with a short finish. Medium- full body and slick mouth - feel. I doubt it would do you harm in the short term, but in the long term maybe. Leighton (22306) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle shared in Richmond - many thanks to Daniel. Vintage 2012. Pours clear, rich gold with a slight, creamy white head. Interesting aroma, some rich bread, ripe citrus, earth, orange, faint metal, grains. Medium sweet flavor, lightly musty, with tangy berries, some farts, very slight acetic notes, sugary bread. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with further tart fruits, hints of vinegar, bread, earth, leather. Quite novel stuff, but just a little rough.

bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Deep Amber colour with a tan head. Stewed fruit aroma taste is lightly sweet, with a thick body and alcohol warmth. gegwilson (3794) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle from Cornwall holiday. Pours deep amber with a cream head. This is another pretty bad beer from Castle. There are some decent flavours hiding in there including pear drop and sherry notes. But there’s some unpleasant ones too. Sourness and tin. A mess, but improves as it goes down.
