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.

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.

jmgreenuk (4002) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2014
Bottle from Cotteridge Wine, Birmingham. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head and some broken white lace. The aroma is grassy woody hop, The flavour is medium bitter with a big strong citrus spicy dry pepper hop palate and a long liqourice bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. A bitter? It’s not an English Ale style bitter. It’s more like an IPA or an APA. A really superb beer. Very crisp and refreshing. I will buy a lot more of this in future.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks David C. Clear copper-amber with an off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel and oxidation (cardboard). Sweetish flavor, malty, caramelly, with a big of fruitiness and a bit of cardboard, finishes bitter, a bit metallic, with light hoppiness and toast. Medium-bodied.
