3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

Golden color, small white head. Grassy, cut wood aroma. Woody, pear fruity flavor, which is also harsh. Dry aftertaste. Kind of unbalanced.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
