4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
