500 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Translucent golden honey orange colour; Two finger head and long lasting crumpety white foam; Good lacing with fizzy carbonation; Very fragrant aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, honey, floral, orange, sugar and light grass; Medium, astringent sweet taste of light grapefruit, lemon, molasses, light malt, orange peel, lime and grassy hops; Medium body, thick and quite oily palate; Taste profile is dominated by fruity grassy hops, mainly lemony citrus. Grapefruit took a 2nd fiddle, quite strong but somewhat less refreshing or expressive than Celt Silures. All in a rather sugary light malt background. Taste balance is tilted toward sugar sweetness but not cloying or syrupy. Still very hoppy as in most Celt Ex brews, from start to finish. Bitterness and lasting astringency to light up the palate, quite lively, slightly refreshing but not mind blowing. Okay. Pretty dry after taste, sweet and hoppy to mouth.

Comments: This should have been the straight forward, boozed up version of the excellent Celt Silures. Yet, its hoppiness is not as lively or refreshing as the latter. The result is a decent but hop-wise dimmed brew, pale in comparison to the mind-blowing Celt Silures. It’s decent, but it’s lacking that ‘little something’ to be top class. I’ll still drink this, but only when Celt Silures is out of stock.

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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4596) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2016 From Gene’s. Although the cask version is 7.6% this being only 5.6% isn’t this just an ESB? Much bigger hops than the Bronze. Citrusy hops for a UK brew. Decent stuff, I think I preferred the bronze through. Serving: Bottle

Clean amber color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, citrus, pine , toffee, hops and some floral notes. Heavy bitter taste of piny hops, malt, caramel and orange. Nice hoppy beer.

Pours a hazy gold with a big, long lasting white head. Aroma is peat and pine. Taste is smooth sweet pale malt, bread dough and hop spiciness that is not over done. Well balanced; good stuff.

500ml bottle from somewhere online, I forget, it’s been a long day. Clear golden orange pour, big white head, high carbonation keeps it there. bit too fizzy actually. Orange, apricot and cream on the nose. Light caramel sweet and good hop bitter taste. Quite rich for such a (relatively) low ABV. Sweet finish. OK.
