Originally produced for the wholesaler LWC Jollys at the, now defunct, Ring O Bells brewery in Cornwall. After the closure of Ring O Bells, Jollys changed the branding of a number of the bottled beers to Carn Brea and moved production (via Keltek) to Hepworth. The recipes may may differ from the originals.

A golden ale with a distinct hoppy aroma and a bitter sweet finish. Celtic ale made using malted wheat, hops, fortified with honey and heather.
Celtic Blonde is named after the beautiful celtic queen "Blonde Esmeree". During Arthurian times the fair queens life was a story of magical romance and honest chivalry. The Celtic meaning of Esmeree is "refined" and "excellent".

Bottle from Wrights Brewery shop Farnham Surrey. A very hazy yellow colour, thin white head and slight carbonation. Aroma are sweet, a light and refeshing beer. Sweet aftertaste. Not bad however this to me is no a session beer.
