COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
This organically crafted ale has a delightful rich bronze colour and is distinguished by a full bodied character with crystal maltiness. A lovely delicate sweetness soon develops into a long hop finish through the traditional blend of hops. Drinkers will enjoy the real traditional values of this great smooth ale. This beer is named after the Bronze Age Celts. Recent discoveries in Bavaria have shown Celtic tribes were brewing as far back as 800 BC. The name Bracis-Curmi (malted beer) traces back to the ancient Celtic language or proto-celtic, an age where Celts were some of the first beer producers in Europe.

Rating #989 - February 17, 2014 - 1oz sample, portfolio tasting. Clear bronze coloured pour with a frothy, thick white foam with very good retention. Smell is sweet malts, a little grainy. Taste is bold hops, malts, and a herby kind of sweetness with that crisp, bitter finish. Hoppy enough to get almost on an APA type train, but very pleasant for a bitter.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy orange copper body. Massive, tedious fluffy off-white head. Has a dry, grassy, earthy hoppiness. Considering this one is a few days past its expiration and made the trek across an ocean and around distribution, it has held up pretty well. On the fuller side of medium bodied. Chewy, nutty malt notes. Decent

Nice taste. Caramel and chocolate malts are joined by an assertive hoppy bitterness that lingers throughout the finish and a subtle buttery note with a tinge of grapefruit and pepper.

beerbaaron (1343) - Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours an unclear amber. Good sized rocky off-white head, good lace. Aroma is malty, herbal, floral. Flavor is initially sweet. Medium body. Finish is sort of herbal spicy hoppy, moderately dry. Toasty. Mild bitterness. Finish overstays its welcome. Not my thing. Better in gulps.

Bottle from Malt & Vine (BB 02.18.2014) Pours translucent light amber with a creamy frothy off-white head. Aroma of light toasty malt with some hop that could be floral, grassy, herb - hard to get it. Med body. Frothy carb. Starts with toasty malt, goes bitter, and the hop suggests floral and herb. Maybe a bit earthy as well. Bitter it is! Good tasting brew.
