Fatehunter (1100) - 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.

Deu (668) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
0.5 l bottle! Light to medium body. Slightly hazy copper to amber color. Aromas of pine, nuts, toffee and some graininess. Fruity, nutty and bitter taste with toffee, pine, grapefruit and some petrol. Firmly bitter, long bitter finish. Smooth oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice.

Taste is definitely bitter and somewhat metallic. Light carbonation, medium bodied, oily texture. Damn bitter one.

Angenehm süßlich, malzig-fruchtig, etwas dickflüssig, aber sehr süffig. Floral-mild. Leckeres Bier.

beerman33190 (31) - FRANCE - MAR 16, 2014
Pours hazy amber with generous head that lingers. Citrus aromas, grapefruit with some sweet malt coming through. Palate is thicker than the pour suggests. Nice lemon rind bitterness in the taste with a touch of sugar. Surprisingly rich overall considering the lowish alcohol content. You could knock a few of these back (and you’d want to) Good work from this brewer.

Found a bottle at Bert’s at Folly Beach. Nice to switch it up from the American PA every once in awhile. Pours a hazy orange with a nose of citrus- grapefruit specifically. Mouthfeel is fizzy- higher carbonation that I like. Almost reminds me of a cider. Has a hint of that cloying malty sweetness but is rescued by the hops. Different flavors than this side of the ocean, with something tasting just a bit "off" to me. Can’t quite place the flavour. Overall refreshing and easygoing and a bit on the sweet side - not bad.

Relatively strong fruity aroma, but not as strong as other celt ales. Strong bitter taste, with a lasting citrus hops taste. Full mouth feel. Generally a refreshing ale without too much fuss.
