COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BlackHaddock (7696) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
Cask pour in The Druid Inn, Goginan, Wales. Not as red as the name might suggest, the body is amber and the head a white affair. Mixed bag of aromas and flavours, nothing standing out, just a decent blend with a light malty front and a floral hop underbelly.
