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.

2011-12-18. golden amber body with a small frothy white head. 3+ Very grainy first sips give way to a mild caramel and malt character, mild bitterness. 5+ Similar aroma, grassy grainy character to it. 5+ Average bodied palate. Just okay, I did not particularly care for it. Bottle from the LCBO

DSG (5799) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 29, 2011
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Oren. Clear golden. Aroma of grainy cereals and some floral hoppiness. Flavor starts sweetish and malty and continues dry and hoppy, moderately bitter with some citric notes. Medium-bodied. Enjoyable.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 25, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Lightly toasted malts and spicy hops coalesce in this cuddly Golden Ale of low intensity and high drinkability.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the misty honeyed blond.
-Balance is achieved from beginning to end.
-The spicy hops provide leveled bitterness.
-Peaceful carbonation feels natural enough to emulate a cask experience.
-Fruity angles suggest oranges.
-Light sweetness never gets cumbersome.

Bottle.

Metalchopz (2282) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 2, 2011
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with an amber hue. Beautiful creamy big off-white head that stays a long time and results in great foamy lacing. Great sweet malty nose that gives out fruitiness well-balanced with some hoppy notes and honey. The taste is not as hoppy as the aromas give out to be. Grainy bread, malty with a little honey and just enough hop to create a little bitterness and grass in the finish. Good creamy mouthfeel that eventually becomes a bit more oily and watery. A pretty damn good session brew.
