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.

Schön dezente Citrus-Noten. Schöne Malzigkeit auch im Geschmack. Bittere gut eingestellt, aber leicht nachhängend. Trotzdem genial.

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

Duvelfan (139) - Getxo (Basque Country), - JAN 20, 2014
Botella de 50 cl. Color dorado, ligeramente turbio. Abundante y duradera espuma. Carbónico el justo. Aromas florales y frescos. En boca, sabores frutales, vainilla....y el retrogusto más amargo de lo que se podría imaginar. Y todo esto con solo 4,2% de alcohol. Para disfrutar

vipinvelp (2142) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2012
Golden yellow with small white foam head lacing to glass. Aroma is weak, but that could be my problem cuurently, in any case a great bitter hop taste. Long lasting dry bitter aftertaste. A good beer indeed. (Velp 201208)

3fourths (7979) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 1, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 bottle. clear gold body with a medium-sized white head, average retention but thick lacing. pale malt honey biscuit character is strong in the nose, while the aromatic hops are pretty quiet, not that it needs it - musty english ale yeast (with a small touch of diacetyl) is mild and matched to the expressively snappy cracker-snap pale malt, and a mild green rawness and earthiness of noble hops grows as it opens. crisp, smacking texture; medium body; medium-light bitterness; lightly sweet; frothy, round, chewy carbonation. rustic and slightly musty, delicious, quaffable, very old-world, and just clean enough. this and the Native Storm are so surprisingly hearty for being so light. re-rate: BBD 30-09-2013: pungent, musty, nectar-y, fruity, very juicy, musty, sweet approach drying finish... 3.7-->4.0

ALLOVATE (2384) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2013
A very classy looking number even prior to the cap coming off. I was biased to like it I suppose, but it pays off with fervour when it was time for a test-run. Cool, but not cold, and into a snifter this one produces up a radiant, misty orange copper with little evident carbonation. After a rough pour settles a good inch of rocky and messy white foam that laces well. Very floral bouquet edged with notes of caramelised orange, lemon curd and palest honey. Assertively hopped, piney and resinous on the palate. Body is light with the head offering it a creaminess and added bitter bite. Grass and rose water, pineneedles and raspy herbs dwell long between sips. Overall it is dry with just a touch of tangy citrus upfront. Backed by enough grainy malt to keep it balanced this is devilishly quaffable. Quality from branding to glass. Delicious! (50cL, BB 18/05/14, Dan Murphy’s Balcatta)

ComradeK (1010) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - FEB 12, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours quite a dark gold for a bland ale, with a medium white head, acceptable retention and excellent lace. Floral notes underly a very malty nose, with honey and caramel being most prominent. Flowery, fruity hops to begin, with biscuit notes in the middle and a nutty, almost baklava-like finish. A delicate and pleasant session ale.

Miksu (4947) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2014
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Copper color. Aromas of fruity and piney hops. Rich bitter, piney and grainy taste with toasted nuts and petrol. Very good hoppy ale. Rich taste, hard to believe this is only 4.2 %.
