Viper666 (2787) - Quebec, - NOV 8, 2012
Bouteille 500ml étiquetée sous le nom de "Celt Golden Crafted Ale". De couleur dorée et légèrement voilée. Nez malté de pain frais, léger de biscuits avec des notes de céréales et de miel, léger de houblon floral et hebreux avec des traces de fruits (agrumes). Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-doux ainsi qu’une texture légèrement crémeuse et aux notes huileuses. Notes mielleuses avec des traces fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût malté de biscuits, un moyen goût de pain et des petites notes de céréales rôties. Paralllèlement, l’on retrouve une légère amertume de houblon plutôt floral en arrière-goût et progressant vers un profil herbeux en fin de gorgée. Post-goût moyen-long et un peu sec, léger-moyen amer de houblon floral et herbeux avec quelques traces rôties.

Cask at the Beer Cellar, Exeter. Far too much dry hops completely masking any other flavour.

jamaty (1162) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 7, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2015 Miel clara, dos dedos de espuma no muy consistente. Ligeramente turbia. Rico aroma lupulado herbal, pino y ligeramente cítrica, pomelo. En boca muy lupulada, ligera refrescante. Rico sabor entre caramelo y miel que aporta la malta y la continuación del predominante lúpulo reforzando el tono de uva y sobre todo pomelo. Carbonatación notable que refuerza el conjunto. Final muy amargo. Notable

bartlebier (2537) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 30, 2015
2x500ml bottles as "Golden Crafted Ale" bb09/2016, over 3 months period, danke Dirk. Richly expressive, unidimensionally tropical nose of mango&peach mousse, papaya, lemon curd: definitely merging into APA Citra territory here. The juiciness in taste is curbed by an unbalanced piney and lingering grapefruit-pithy bitterness running underneath, overplaying the delicate UK malt base. This golden ale wants to a zippy APA at all cost and you can taste and feel both the aspiration and the conflict in that in mouthfeel.

Garry_Evans (63) - HONG KONG - MAY 26, 2015
Nice IPA close to being a British bitter. Drunk at room temperature from pint glass; 500ml bottle bought from Fusion supermarket in Hong Kong. Appearance is cloudy yellow-brown with big soapy coloured head. Aroma of lemons and coriander, very hoppy. Very dry on the palate, but nice softness with low carbonation. Tastes of walnut, grass. Lacks nuance but very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TEJA (1541) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2015
Bottle sampled at Björn, thanks. Small beige head. Light clowdy golden color. Big fresh flowery hoppiness. Sparkling taste with fresh pale maltiness and a tuch of metal. Lasting bitterness.

500ml bottle. Best Before 24.09.2015. Slightly opaque pale gold colour with a towering, frothy, ice cream like head which refused to reduce, wonderful lacing. Assertive aroma pine forest, grapefruit, passionfruit with a malt undertone. Beautiful balance of medium sweetness and a shade more bitterness. Medium bodied, smooth texture, lively carbonation and a long bitter resin finish. Very enjoyable but left me feeling very gassy. 8.

500ml bottle from cornelius. Pours hazy golden orange, thin white head. Hoppy orange citrus aromas, light yeast. Taste has sherbet, more orange, light granulated sugar sweetness. Bitter finish.

spartakbarnsley (67) - St Petersburg, RUSSIA - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle from Pulkovsky Universam , St Petetsburg. Lovely beer. Aroma of hops, yeast and citrus. Medium carbonation, citrus, wood notes, very bitter hoppy finish. Packed with flavour for such a low ABV. A lovely cross between an English bitter and an American Pale Ale. Would make a great summer session beer.
