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.

floydian1 (929) - FNQ, Australia, - JAN 18, 2014
500ml bottle from DMís 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 Summerís day.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. (BB 01.29.2014) Pours translucent gold with a slight white head. Aroma is mild citrus. Med minus body. Flavor is bready and citrus. In Koln it might pass as a Kolsch. Finishes mildly flavored.

My first beer from this brewery, from Danís Adelaide. Golden colour, mild malt driven aroma with some fresh hop character. Clean palate with a refreshing dry finish.

Cantabrian (809) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 6, 2013
Very sweet aroma of Chardonnay, although not too strong. And Iím neither too excited about the blonde looks here, although her head looks respectable. Malty with a very bitter bite. Not as resinous as it could be. Just bitter, piney and grassy. Nice, but not calling for another.

Bottle @’llesummeri, Tallinn
Clear copper color, good off-white head. Leafy, resiny aroma. Light to medium bodied. Resiny, some caramel. Nice for this ABV. Good malt profile.
Earlier Rating: 8/7/2009 Total Score: 2.6
Cask@GBBF. (staff cask?) Golden color, small white head. Grassy, cut wood aroma. Woody, pear fruity flavor, which is also harsh. Dry aftertaste. Kind of unbalanced.

kdm1984 (650) - Missouri, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Super malty and somewhat over-sweet aroma on this one. Also somewhat spicy and again, smoked, aroma (second Celt Experience beer to have the smoked component for me). Taste also very malt-forward. Some spice and slight sourness, and then a bitterness kick in the end. Quite good, actually. Most complex blond/gold ale Iíve had. Not something Iíd go for regularly, but like the last Celt beer I had, it grew on me with more sips, and I found it quite interesting and unlike much of what I experience in the typical American craft versions of its style.

puboflyons (2121) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 3, 2013
From the 25 fl. oz. bottle stamped 30-09-2013. It has a golden yellow with a light haze and a short-lived white fizzy head. Malts and brown sugar seem to lead the aroma experience with grains, butter, and vague fruit. Light to medium body. The taste begins a little sweet and malty but ends mildly bitter. Pretty basic.

Lovely floral bitterness with some sweetness and well rounded. A full creamy mouthfeel. Amber in colour with white head. The bottles are lovely too.
