Castle Milk Stout

Using a dark roasted malt to extract a full-flavoured brew, with strong hints of toffee, butterscotch and coffee, its natural bitterness is balanced by a rich taste. The key to its taste is the carefully controlled combination of fine ingredients. Barley malt is the basis, with roasted malt adding the darker taste notes. Maize extract, lactose, caramel and hops round off the perfect formula for a smooth, flavourful stout.
