COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
A golden coloured organic ale, with a rich full-bodied texture accompanied by a unique blend of traditional and fruity hops. Drinkers of this delicious ale will experience a mouth-watering taste of citrus fruits with a slightly spicy aroma. This beer is named after the Golden Age of the Celtic people. The Celts dominated Mid-Europe before the Roman Empire stretched westwards and northward. In the Golden Age of Celtdom, the Celts waged successful wars in continental Europe, notably in around 500 BC where modern day Spain and Northern Italy were overthrown. The name Bracis-Curmi (malted beer) traces back to the ancient Celtic language or proto-celtic, an age where Celts were some of the first beer producers in Europe.

Finally, a Welsh rate. RateBeer has been discretely badgering me about it for years - itís the easiest country to nail that you havenít rated, the stats say. Damn it, RateBeer, Iím trying, honest! Welsh beer seems to travel to Australia about as rarely as the rugby team these days. Shame. My low expectations for this ale, stumbled on in a pretty run-of-the-mill country bottlo, were pleasantly surpassed. Gold with a chill haze and a loose, shallow head. Fresh, malt-dominated aroma. Lemon, honey and 3am rolls. Palate seems mildly underdone - verging on flat. May be the bottle age or an attempt to mimic cask conditioning? Bread, bread, bread on the tongue. May be the breadiest ale Iíve come across. No complaints here. Bit herbal, bit floral. Overall, one of the best bottled ales Iíve had from the UK, with none of that nasty pasteurised lolly taint. Nice work. (500ml bottle from DíVine Cellars, Wentworth Falls. BB 4/11/13)

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Cask at NERAX. Slightly hazy golden with a lasting bubbly head. Lovely malt nose - grass, straw, hay, with soft floral hops also. Slightly soapy but lovely distinctive perfumed hops and a good hay-like malt backbone. Medium smooth body and a nice lingering lightly bitter berry aftertaste. Very nice example of the style.

Copper/orange. Nice fruity nose hint of orange zest. Malty taste with a decent finish. Not bad but not really my favorite.

Bottle from morrisons. Golden amber with large head. Aroma of hops, pineapple and citrus. Taste is pine resin, citrus orange and some sweet fruits. Quite good.

AshtonMcCobb (2117) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2014
On cask at the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - golden with a nice head. Nose - floral going into lime. Taste - more of the same. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long drying finish. Overall - good ale.

bulldogops (1028) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
Rating #988 - February 17, 2014 - 1oz sample - portfolio tasting from Global. My first Welsh beer. Clear golden pour, hint of copper colour, weak white foam that bubbles away slowly to a soapy ring. Aroma is earthy malts, hints of caramel, lemon. Taste is a mild sweetness, honey, citrus followed by a mild hop bite. Very nice.

"Golden amber appearance with a big bubbly off-white head and some carbonation. Good lacing. Very nice mix of malts and hops. Not too bitter. Some citrus flavours abound, along with ginger and a hint of sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth and quite pleasant. Enjoyable and not strong on the palate."

nuplastikk (4126) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2014
500ml bottle. Opened two weeks after the best by date, solid for $2.49 a bottle. Hazy orange-yellow body. Foamy white heat laces up the glass. Kind of an odd aroma, some buttery tones Iím not really enjoying. Medium bodied, somewhat similar to a Session IPA with the grapefruit hops. There is some fishy rancid action going on unfortunately. I hope the other Celt beers are better than this, and that this is better fresh.

Duften er så absolut det bedste ved denne øl. Den fremstår grumset og er meget tør i både smag og eftersmag. Alt i alt en ganske fin Golden ale.
