Fatehunter (1179) - 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.

bhensonb (10908) - 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.

Wyrd_Brewery (12) - - FEB 21, 2014
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.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 500 ml bottle. Clear darkish amber with a thin white collar and moderate carbonation. Aromas of malt, nuts and floral notes. Taste is a well rounded combination of raisins, plums and a touch of spice with a decent hop bitterness. Full mouth feel with a solid malt backing. Enjoyable beer with nice complexity.
