3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at NERAX. Slightly hazy golden with a lasting bubbly head. Lovely malt nose - grass, straw, hay, with soft floral hops also. Slightly soapy but lovely distinctive perfumed hops and a good hay-like malt backbone. Medium smooth body and a nice lingering lightly bitter berry aftertaste. Very nice example of the style.

Copper/orange. Nice fruity nose hint of orange zest. Malty taste with a decent finish. Not bad but not really my favorite.

Rating #988 - February 17, 2014 - 1oz sample - portfolio tasting from Global. My first Welsh beer. Clear golden pour, hint of copper colour, weak white foam that bubbles away slowly to a soapy ring. Aroma is earthy malts, hints of caramel, lemon. Taste is a mild sweetness, honey, citrus followed by a mild hop bite. Very nice.

"Golden amber appearance with a big bubbly off-white head and some carbonation. Good lacing. Very nice mix of malts and hops. Not too bitter. Some citrus flavours abound, along with ginger and a hint of sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth and quite pleasant. Enjoyable and not strong on the palate."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. Opened two weeks after the best by date, solid for $2.49 a bottle. Hazy orange-yellow body. Foamy white heat laces up the glass. Kind of an odd aroma, some buttery tones I’m not really enjoying. Medium bodied, somewhat similar to a Session IPA with the grapefruit hops. There is some fishy rancid action going on unfortunately. I hope the other Celt beers are better than this, and that this is better fresh.

Duften er så absolut det bedste ved denne øl. Den fremstår grumset og er meget tør i både smag og eftersmag. Alt i alt en ganske fin Golden ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 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%. [3.5]
For a Welsh beer this is a real citrusy hop bomb. Almost too much bitterness. Label redesign is great.
