This is one of my favorite beers from Celt. The beer comes in a 500ml bottle which is 5.6& abv. The beer is very clear and has a nice one finger head which gives a nice lacing down the glass too. The grains used in this beer blends together really well with the hops to resemble a very good balanced beer.

ComradeK (977) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium amber, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well but does not leave much lacing. Floral hops, candied fruits, raisins and some biscuit malt make up a fairly pleasant aroma. Fresh floral hops introduce the beer, leading into a body of biscuit malt with a touch of toffee. Raisins and a mild muscat flavour appear at the finish. A fairly sweet English strong ale, but a nice example of the style.

Fatehunter (1178) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Two fingers of head, that held nicely. Opaque, dark straw colored body. Big lemon zest smell, some barnyard (wet grain) and honey too. A stubborn lemon bitterness up front... refuses to cease. A bit of malt sweetness comes through. Long finish with the bitter. Crisp and medium body. Fairly low carbonation. An enjoyable ale with a big helping of hops.

EithCubes (4699) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle by 01.13. Nose with a strong caramel base and piny hops, some citrus/grapefruit. Hazy yellow-orange with a rocky off-white head. Taste is nice and bitter, brings it, spicy/floral notes with a little Christmas cookie and caramel, dries but there’s seemingly more booze here than the 5.6% listed on the label. Very (too-) crisp medium body an the grapefruit really makes itself known with some volume. Just heavy.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2012 Bottle. Pours clear yellow with white head. Nose and taste of apple skin, lager yeast, light citrus fruits and bready malt. Medium body.
