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.

Bottle. Gold with an inch of white head. Aroma is floral with herbal lemon, honey. Sweet with hay and honey, quite earthy and little dusty, pithy citrus, a little pine, lingering rather bitter finish. Has a lot of presence for 4.2%.

crossovert (7020) - Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Golden pour, white head. Toffee in the smell with some spice. Flavor is grapefruit blended with breadcrust and a tiny hint of crystal malt. Dry and zippy. Got all of these Celt beers for 2$ each and before the bb date. Still overpriced but for an import organic ale it is a steal.

beerbaaron (1159) - Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle. 2 days past best drink by date. Pours a hazy medium orange golden, bubbles surrounding glass, small soapy white head. Aroma is dry, a little sweet, toasty, earthy hops, little caramel, light citrus. Light and crisp. Some creaminess. Finish is quite bitter, dry and outlasting its welcome. Earthy, cracker, light citrusy. Enjoyed a little more as it warmed a bit further than I already had, but not the best drinkability for me.

MarinEvelyn (535) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Aroma is dry, a little sour(?) hops, hay, earthiness. Taste is fairly bitter, a little citrus or something in there, light and golden, just like the color. Cracker. Fairly strong bitter finish.

Miksu (4946) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2014
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Copper color. Aromas of fruity and piney hops. Rich bitter, piney and grainy taste with toasted nuts and petrol. Very good hoppy ale. Rich taste, hard to believe this is only 4.2 %.

Duvelfan (137) - Getxo (Basque Country), - JAN 20, 2014
Botella de 50 cl. Color dorado, ligeramente turbio. Abundante y duradera espuma. Carbónico el justo. Aromas florales y frescos. En boca, sabores frutales, vainilla....y el retrogusto más amargo de lo que se podría imaginar. Y todo esto con solo 4,2% de alcohol. Para disfrutar

floydian1 (905) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 18, 2014
500ml bottle from DM’s with expiry 18/5/14. Looks great with a bright golden body, decent creamy white head and lace rings on the glass. Aroma has butterscotch, biscuity malts and citrus fruity hops (oranges and grapefruits mainly) with good balance on the tongue and a decent spruced hop finish. Nice clean refreshing palate with oily texture and medium body with lowish carbonation. Very enjoyable on a hot Summer’s day.

Bottle from SuperBest, Cph - clear golden colour with decent white head. Sweet malts, fruity hoppy and floral notes, citrus, some pine, crisp and refreshing. Liked this.
