This is definitely a traditional bitter colour of ale - it's a lovely toffee colour with a traditional tight frothy head. It smells hoppy, fruity, malty and ever so slightly sweet.
There is an abundant mixture of tastes coming through including toffee, fruit and biscuit with the traditional slight metallic aftertaste. Arundel Caste is smooth, dry and deliciously hoppy; an easy 4 or even 4.5 rating from me.
