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.

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.

Bottle from Beer52 mail order box. Minimal head and as the bottle says it’s unfiltered. Nice clean aroma to it after pouring. Very hoppy and although only 3.5% it tastes like a much stronger beer. Very enjoyable.

Mortlach (1966) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 21, 2016
Cask @Tree Folk’s (Rome). Pours amber with a medium creamy white head. Aroma is malty, biscuits, nuts, light roasted notes, apple, grassy hops. Flavour is delicate like a traditional english bitter, medium malty with a little bitter end. Light body, soft carbonation. Nice one.

BeardedAvenger (254) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle at home, 25/06/16. Bought at M&S. Attractive aroma - sweet caramel with a floral hint - on further appraisal I can pick up more of the hops. Dark toffee in appearance and hazy. An off white head which has staying power to it. Medium bodied and smooth - the hops come through for a bitte taste that surprised me due the sweet aroma. More interesting than your average bitter.

Cask. Aroma has mildly berry scent. Pours copper with thin lace top. A pleasant balanced bitter with some malt biscuit and hop fruit in each swallow. I suspect the art of making a tasty low abv bitter is becoming rarer since the craft revolution. But one could share an evening with this beer and still talk sense (assuming of course that gibberish was not your native tongue).

Cask at Draft House Seething, London. Pours chestnut with off white head. Nice dry session bitter. Pleasant enough.

berkshirejohn (6072) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2016
50cl bottle from Beer52.com. A dull amber pour with a tight cream head; malty aroma with a woody note; clean grassy bitterness to start with a touch of citrus; and a lingering bitterness to end. A straightforward bitter.

I had this from a Beer 52 gift box, poured at home. Tasted very lightly carbonated, almost still, slightly watery. No real head on it, nice colour, pretty easy to drink. Wouldn’t be a go to beer, but nice as a change of pace.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Bottle from M&S Stratford and drunk at home. Clear amber brown colour lasting beige head. Some hop on the aroma, some malt, a touch of earthy hop. Decent enough drinkable session brown bitter. Man I’ve missed drinking these beers. Decent dryness on the finish.
