7.2% bottle at the GJBF Osaka 2013. A dark yellowish gold color, the aroma has a hint of smoke but not as strong as with the Bronze. My favorite of the three Celts I tried today. A bit of smoke, the bitterness is more balanced-quite an interesting beer, I liked it.

Wow this was a surprise! Great soft pale yellow in colour. Extra refreshing bitter which belies the strength. Very floral aroma, followed by grapefruit and pine flavours and a string citrus tang. Body medium to thin. Liked it and it certainly suited the steaming hot day.

bhensonb (11906) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a slight off-white head. Soft grapefruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is grapefruit and floral. Some malt background. It’s definitely on the bitter side. Just a lot different from US ales. Which in this case seems to be a good thing.

ianwelby (600) - SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Clear gold beer with a thick, foamy head. Light grapefruit aroma. Initial flavour is a hoppy, grapefruity blend and it has a sour, bitter finish that lingers nicely.

Soft blonde pour with a white head. The nose is sharp and bready, oxidized, vitamin-y, papery, and herbal. Sharp and grassy flavor, bready/earthy malt character, and herbal. Light body with a dry finish.

0.5 bottle. Clear, color is neither brown nor red, not crimson quite nice though, with a big, white head which lasts a while. Aroma starts IPA-like; exotic fruits, flowers, and a lot of grapefruit a little perfume as well. Taste is quite bitter, fruity, mostly grapefruit, some sourness flickers in the background at times. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Finish is also bitter with some sourness, basically like a grapefruit again. Overall the beer is straightforward but artful at the same time. Quite alright, could use some improvements.
