Château Cara Gold® is a Belgian crystal malt. It imparts a strong caramel-sweet aroma and a pronounced toffee-like flavor. It adds rich amber hues to beer. Crystal malts also add body and improve head retention. Cara Gold® is best suited to dark or brown beers, especially porters.

Crystal malts are gently cooked during the malting process. Cooking initiates the enzymatic conversion of starches into fermentable sugars, and caramelizes some of the sugars as the malt reaches its final color. This eliminates the need to mash crystal malt, and ensures that some of the sugars will survive fermentation to sweeten the beer.

This malt was formerly known as "Castle Caramel Munich."
