Health Challenge Newport - fail

Popped into the Pen & Wig in Newport for a lunchtime pint and discovered this new beermat for "Health Challenge Newport". This is a scheme run by Newport City Council who have decided to spend our council tax on propaganda to advertise their leisure centres as revenue has been falling at council run centres as customers go to Ballyntines and other such "lifestyle altering places". Should local councils be spending our money to compete with the private sector? Probably not but Brew Wales did his own "Going for Gold" with a golden pint of Celt Experiance Red Castle Cream. A hoppy and malty aroma leads to a smooth biscuity flavour and bitter aftertaste. Chewy, bitter finish that lingers in the mouth for a while. Not a bad beer, not spectacular but a drinkable pint. That's my "Going for Gold" for today!
