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.

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.

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.

Clear copper color, good off-white head. Leafy, resiny aroma. Light to medium bodied. Resiny, some caramel. Nice for this ABV. Good malt profile.

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 (762) - 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.

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.

Citrus and flowery hops on the nose. Lots of hops and bread in the taste. Little hoppier than what I'd normally drink but not too bad. Just not as complex as the great beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jado (604) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2013
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden amber with a tightly packed white head and plenty of sparkle. Aromas of apple, light lemon, crusty bread and raisins. Taste offers apple and pear up front with prickly lemony bitterness in the mid-palate. Light fruit and citrus at the end. Medium bodied. Gently spicy aftertste. Like it.

Finally, a Welsh rate. RateBeer has been discretely badgering me about it for years - itís the easiest country to nail that you havenít rated, the stats say. Damn it, RateBeer, Iím trying, honest! Welsh beer seems to travel to Australia about as rarely as the rugby team these days. Shame. My low expectations for this ale, stumbled on in a pretty run-of-the-mill country bottlo, were pleasantly surpassed. Gold with a chill haze and a loose, shallow head. Fresh, malt-dominated aroma. Lemon, honey and 3am rolls. Palate seems mildly underdone - verging on flat. May be the bottle age or an attempt to mimic cask conditioning? Bread, bread, bread on the tongue. May be the breadiest ale Iíve come across. No complaints here. Bit herbal, bit floral. Overall, one of the best bottled ales Iíve had from the UK, with none of that nasty pasteurised lolly taint. Nice work. (500ml bottle from DíVine Cellars, Wentworth Falls. BB 4/11/13)
