COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A golden coloured organic ale, with a rich full-bodied texture accompanied by a unique blend of traditional and fruity hops. Drinkers of this delicious ale will experience a mouth-watering taste of citrus fruits with a slightly spicy aroma. This beer is named after the Golden Age of the Celtic people. The Celts dominated Mid-Europe before the Roman Empire stretched westwards and northward. In the Golden Age of Celtdom, the Celts waged successful wars in continental Europe, notably in around 500 BC where modern day Spain and Northern Italy were overthrown. 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.

Lubiere (9747) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2012
A hazed golden ale with a thin lacing off white head. In aroma, caramel malt with grassy British hops, with light piney notes. In mouth, a smooth caramel malt with faint British hops, a tad boring, but decent. LCBO bottle.

slimspady (175) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 16, 2012
Looks and smells better than it tastes. Pours golden with a giant white head. Highly carbonated. A little hazy. Pine, citrus and hops in the nose. Starts a little bland, then the hop bitterness kicks in and that doesn’t help. Some of this might make the drain.

Overheard: "What does that say?" "Bacon Marmalade." "That’s disgusting... But it tastes good."

JorgeLee (1137) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2012
Sampler on tap thanks to kind barman at Devil Craft on Tokyo (of all places). It is indeed a golden ale, medium body, has a definite interesting exotic fruitiness in the hops, maybe something mango or papaya, hint of slight sugary rot with that. Not whollyconvinced it was my thing but worth a go.

presario (4580) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle. Nice golden liquid with fair lacing and a good head. Relatively clean scent with a bit of hops and stronger notes of sawdust. Flavour is a bit yeasty and nondescript.

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
Bottle at home, from my Maudite glass. Pours clear golden (oooh.. surprise!) with a thin white head, and decent lacing. Nose is gentle hops, mostly in the tropical fruit realm, and clean grain. Pardon me for saying so, but after the Thornbridge beers, and the Fyne Ales beers, and even the Durham and Moor stuff, this seems remarkably tame for a Golden Ale. Flavours are again tropical fruit (mango? papaya? and some perfume/rosewater, with a light spicy finish. Nothing really wrong here, but I have tasted so much better lately. Woo for the Wales tick though...

500ml brown bottle. Golden pour, decent creamy white head. Nose is fruity, some citrus hops. Fruity taste, caramel, decent citrus hops notes. Average body and carbonation. Enjoyable.
