COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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.

Brownish-red color; small amount of oily head with variable sized bubbles. Crisp, slightly hoppy aroma. Taste is strongly bitter/hops, definitely with a ’red’ tone underneath. Good ale palate, watery and minearlly. A solid brew.

alex_alkis (295) - SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 For being a 3,5% this darker bitter holds high class. Very mellow taste which is unusual for beers with a low alcohol percentage.
