Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Castle rock is a mightily good brewery and I believe this is my favourite of theirs. A clear, light golden pour mounted by a lasting white cover. Superbly malty doing subtlety with a punch by british standards. Beautiful and efficient limey, tart, pointy, peaky citrusy hops are bright and forward all throughout. The just as forward malts furnish a medium to full creamy body boasting arrogantly the freshest bready nuances and almost no graininess. As fresh as it gets.

Bottle Conditioned. Poured a golden colour with a thin white head. Plenty of citrus aromas in the aroma and the taste.

anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden color with a longlasting white head. Fruity malty and hoppy aroma with some hints of citrus. Smooth malty hoppy flavor with some hints of honey and citrus. Fruity hoppy finish with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

A Mes rate: Cask at the Market Porter.
Golden brown with a thin white head. Slightly mallty but generally floral and citric. Inoffensive but very dull.

RoyceH (1199) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 6, 2007
Cask, Kingdom of Fife BF 07. Light yellow colour, no head. Nose is citrus hops, lemon, some dull malt. Very watery, metallic finish, some lasting citrus. Quite odd.

[CASK: The Three Guineas, Reading, Berks 24/08/06] The pump clip promised so much... unfortunatly not very good. Pale in colour and a sweet taste but overall unimpressed.

Hugh (212) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2007
Bottle from De Wildeman, Amsterdam. British real ales don’t usually succeed as bottled beers, but this is an exception. Light bodied beer with wonderful bittering hops, very citrusy, grapefruit almost. A great success except for the lable, which to me looks cheap and tacky. I’ve yet to have a beer from this brewery that I didn’t rave about to anyone standing nearby.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2007
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a white head. Floral hoppy aroma. Fruity taste, slightly citric, and a bitter finish. And one of Britain’s naughtiest pumpclips.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2006
Cask (handpump) at the Rook & Gaskill, York, October 2006. Pale gold colour with a persistent white head. Grassy, herbaceous aroma, with flowery touches. Gentle citrus and dry malt in the flavour. Smooth and clean, with a light mouthfeel but didn’t seem too vibrant. Perhaps a bit tired or near the end of the barrel?
