Previously known as Newmans Red Stag Bitter.
Iron Age Celts lived in Britain Europe and after Jesus. The name ’Iron Age’ came from the discovery of the new metal called iron. The Celts lived across most of Europe during the Iron Age. Today the Celts live in Wales, Ireland, Scotland, the Isle of Man, Cornwall and in Brittany, France. Their culture lives on in language, music, song and literature.Celt Iron age is a ruby coloured fruity beer full of robust and unique fruity hop characteristics. This initial clean hop bitterness is balanced with a smooth malty caramel body and a complexion of rich fruity aromas with hints of berryfruit.

thirstyrabbit (1000) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 18, 2014
Bottle. Bronze body, tall to medium head. Aroma has dry caramelly hops and it comes off a bit muted. Taste has dry caramel and medium hoppiness. A hop driven dry bitter - quite similar to other offerings from this brewery.

Ambrée, une mousse qui se dissipe rapidement, un goût assez amer avec des houblons qui rajoutent à l’acidité un brin trop poussée de cette bière. Une binouse intéressante, même si ce n’est pas forcément ma tasse de malt...

HULK777 (288) - - FEB 7, 2014
Really nice aroma of red apples, toffee, and cocoa. Taste of bitter chocolates, toast bread, and fruit. Well-balanced aftertaste.

FatPhil (8604) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2014
500ml bottle (Drink Shop, Tallinn)
Initially on pouring there’s a lovely fruity and floral aroma, but it’s a bit watery after a while in the glass. Fairly watery palate, OK carbonation. Tons of grains, husks, some nettle and grassy hops. Finish lightly malty, but heavily bitter. Coats the mouth and has quite a tingle. Does improve as it warms, it’s full of flavour, more nuttiness and malts come out. Suffers a little from being bottled, would like to try this as a real ale. Nice and sessionable though.

Nice head that stays around. Better than the average supermarket beer in Sweden. Not my favourite style though.
