maekchu (2140) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 17, 2013
Bottle pour at Great Japan Beer Festival Osaka (7/13/2013). Fruity and malty (British-style) nose. Hazy gold straw color. Big hits of whiskey and tobacco. Smacky-lip sipping. Doesn’t really smooth out. Some mild peppery harshness, and some rye-like notes. Interesting stuff.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2070) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 15, 2013
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.

fidelis83 (1954) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Hazy, pale gold pour with a 2 finger, frothy, white head that has good retention and leaves decent lacing. Tree fruit, berries, bitter citrus and biscuit in the aroma. Taste starts out with lots of mineral, cereal malts, light toffee, floral (thistle flower comes to mind), herbal, and bitter citrus hops with a nice, light honey-like sweetness riding out the citrus and mineral finish. Medium body, oily, to creamy feel and moderate carbonation. Pretty good overall, nicely hoppy, while still retaining a distinctly Englishy profile.

Lowenbrau (1948) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2013
500 ml bottle. Malty, some herbal and caramel aromas. Pours dark gold, clear, with vanishing white head. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is sweet, herbal. some caramel. Correct, but nothing remarkable.
