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.

Clean sharp copper pour with a thick sandy tan head. Bready aroma, oxidized and papery with earthy/herbal notes. Light malt sweetness in the flavor and a lightly spicy character. SoOooooOoo dry. Light and bitter.

BlackHaddock (4111) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
500ml bottle, just out of date when opened on 15th Dec 2014. Bought at Beers of Europe and hidden in my stash until I rediscovered it yesterday. Poured at home into an Abbot Ale glass tankard, my ’go to’ tasting glass currently. Lovely clear body, bronze hue to the amber colouring: on top a smooth white blanket of foam. Semi-sweet malty lead in the aroma and taste, hops arriving in sweeping waves behind. Mild nutty hints within the taste and my sweet tooth loved the malt base of the brew. Good, nice feel to the blend of flavours, body depth also worthy of note. I am really impressed with the beers from these guys: will seek out more.

EtTuCthulhu (1124) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 12, 2014
The color is a cloudy orangeish brown with a large off-white head, and the beer’s scent blends earthy hops, basement aromas, and caramel and light malts. The taste is mildly bitter, mildly sour, and a touch umami, and the palate fuses a slightly bitter finish, medium body, slick texture, and a soft carbonation.

Bottle. Copper colored with a nice head. Aroma is a tad weak with mostly malt. Taste is surprisingly bitter. Needs more balance.

Bottle from Morrisons Connahs Quay. Pours a clear gold amber with a pillowy off white head. Aroma is doughy, hops and slight peppery spice. Taste is dry and bitter, caramel notes, with hops thrown in for good measure. Drinkable, but a little bit TOO dry for my taste.

(draught) pours a hazy golden colour with a creamy off-white head. aroma of bread dough and grapes, slightly musty, with a hint of citrus fruit and black pepper. flavour is more of the same, oranges, gently roasted malts, some yeast and a light tartness in the light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.
