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.

Joakgust (1143) - Stockholm, - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle, 50cl - Clear amber beer with a white head. Aroma is malty with notes of tea, caramel, floral hops and roasty malts. Flavor is malty with notes of floral hops, toast, caramel and hay. Long lasting taste, light carbonated and slightly light bodied but extremely drinkable.

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 (136) - 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 (828) - 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!

SirLimpsalot (2778) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2015
@ Basunen 15-2-29: ganska enkel doft av humle och citrus. Smaken är helt ok med en lagom fyllig munnkänsla. Smaker humle och frukt med en lite mer brun eftersmak av kola. Lite stekpanna men det försvinner fort. Bra 3,5:a ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

BlackHaddock (4985) - 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 (661) - 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 (179) - - 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
