Beer Review: Castle Red

A couple of beer reviews today based on a couple of hours spent in the Bull and Castle this afternoon. There were loads of beers to choose from but I decided to sample the Castle Red and Galway Hooker.

Irish Red Ale 4.3%, Draught (Brewed by the Franciscan Well Brewery, Cork)

Rich dark red colour with a strong off white head. Sweet malt dominates the aroma, really enticing aroma. Very smooth mouthfeel, nice low level of carbonation. The body is extremely light. Refreshing fruit dominates the taste, you would nearly think it was non-alcoholic. Overall a very nice light refreshing summer session beer, body is maybe a little too light, but overall very enjoyable. Would that I would recommend for a sunny afternoon or as a session beer.
