COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
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.

BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Fourth beer of a random tasting evening I held with myself on 5th Dec 2014. 500ml bottle: BBD 10 days away when poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard. Nice looking brew, clear chestnut reddy brown with a full beige topping. Fruity and also semi-malty nose, with a flavouring on the same lines. Hedgerow berries and some sweetness from the malts, the beer grows on you as it warms and settles in the glass. Feels stronger than 3.5% ABV and is full bodied, especially for such a relatively weak alcohol beer. Really impressed with the beer, flavoursome and interesting.

Hopmaestro (194) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Aroma here is strong from bready malts, caramels and a little toffee. The taste sensation is surprisingly good for the low ABV, sweet malts, medium body, but... then a dry bitterness kicks in, and it lasts for quite a while. And that is what saves this baby, it is actually living up to the name of "bitter".

konungen (84) - - NOV 22, 2014
Klar kopparfärgad öl med smutsvitt skum. Doft & smak: malt, sötma, humle, citrusfrukt, blommig, relativt besk om än inte så tung beska. Helt ok 3.5% öl där man saknar lite styrka. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djoeye (1839) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 2, 2014
Deep amber clear body, tan high bubbling head, fine fragile lacings all over the mug. Aroma; citrus, resin, brown malts, tiny dough, tiny prune, a roasted feel, and fresh and inviting. Taste; dark malts, citrus peel, resin, bun dough, plum peel, dark wood. Fruity roasted bitter-fruity finish, lingering. Normal on palate, dry parts, light body. Overall well brewed. If you need a beer from supermarket in Sweden to your sweet-n-sour steak, this is a better choice than most of the other 3.5 they have. [50cl brown bottle, abv3.5%, BB02.06.2015, B@supermarket sweden, T@höme]

Köpt på Konsum. Fruktig öl i bitter-stil med påtaglig beska. En av de bättre folkölen jag smakat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sarauckelman (215) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
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.
