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.

Erzengel (6224) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 19, 2015
*Bottle from Hemköp in Stockholm. Nice Bitter-typical beginning. Not too much depth but a round and refreshing beer. Could be a bit dryer, but round and refreshing aroma with nice hops and a nice malty Bitter-Ale-typical ending. Refreshing.

Pours clear reddish brown with a thin white head. Malty and light toasted flavour. Cheap beer taste. Really not the best.

visionthing (3884) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 2, 2015
50cl bottle from Coop Konsum, Sälen. Pours clear deep amber to copper coloured with an off-white head. Malty and rather hoppy aroma with pine, caramel, dark berries and some earthy notes. Moderate to medium sweet and quite flavourful taking the low alcohol content into concideration. Quite pleasant with a nice bitterness too. Certainly a fairly decent brew.

Reddish gold with a fluffy off white head. Caramel aroma, some fruitiness. Taste is mostly the caramel underneath with slightly chemical note and some slightly overpowering bitterness. Not a favourite

CraftyBeerTour (139) - Barcelon, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2015
Cask draught at the Albion Arms, Ampthill. Fresh brown bread aroma. Clear reddish brown beer, low carbonation, thin fine foam that laces, in good condition. Somewhat earthy, herbal bitterness, which is pleasantly persistent. Surprisingly, there is some silkiness in the mouth.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2015
Beautiful frothy bitter ale with fresh aromas of dried fruits like raisins, dates and prunes. The taste is partial, caramel malt with a little hint of the aforementioned fruits but fairly quickly creating a hoppy bitter taste of citrus fruit as the main theme. Light floral hops completes the aftertaste for a long time. Actually, it’s a really nice bitter, though its overall impression most reminiscent of a pale ale or perhaps an IPA. Before hoppy bitterness entry has the fine malt notes, but you must be quick to intercept them!
