Brasserie Castelain – from the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France. Castelain has rich golden tones which nearly illuminate this bright beer. A light cream colored foamy head rises majestically then laces its way down the beer as it’s consumed. Light floral notes accompany this beer’s light toastiness backed by caramel. It offers a subtle graininess, a hint of nutty character and a subdued breadiness. It finishes with low hops and a touch of barely domesticated yeast spiciness.
