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.

A nice malt forward sessionable ale. Pours a clear golden yellow with a big frothy white top. Aroma is nice grassy malts with a light hop. Taste again is malt forward with a small hop character. Fairly unassuming but very drinkable.

500 ml bottle. From bierzwerg.de.
Cloudy amber colour with tiny off-white head. Berry hops, malt, caramel and unpleasant bitterness in aroma. Malty grainy, mild caramel and bitterish berry hops in flavour. Soft carbonation. Bitterness is quite unpleasant. Before the glass is empty the acrid bitterness get really annoying.

(50 cl bottle from SuperBest) Pours a clear golden with rich, white head. Aroma is slightly floral with faint sweet notes. Medium-bodied, watery texture with medium carbonation and a short, bitter finish. The taste is somewhat bitter with spicy notes. Girlfriend says: "Itís too bitter for me. I canít taste anything else."

probstblueribbon (2744) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. BB 9.12. I like the label...understated and elegant.

App.: Deep golden with a small, messy white froth. Aroma: Grain, cereal, straw, hay, a touch of sweetness, a touch of fruitiness, sort of a mashy/savoury quality, biscuit, a little bit grassy, earthy in an odd way. Palate: Medium body, reasonably full effervescence. Flav.: Consistent with the nose, there is this somewhat hard-to-describe malt note that is kinda sweet, kinda fruity, kinda earthy, kinda oddly savoury, with cereal/grain/biscuit but in a deeper, more complex way; I donít love it; some lighter grassy notes, maybe a touch of lemon; dry with fair bitterness and a mashy, cooked cereal, vaguely grassy finish.

Certainly a flavourful Golden/Blonde Ale, I just donít like all of the flavours.
