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)

Bottle shared with sarah picked up at ASDA. Hazed yellow golden coloured pour with a frothy white head. Aroma is perfumed lemon, bready grains and straw. Flavour is composed of bready grains, straw, pithy, lemon, grainy, assertive citrus hop bitterness. Palate is light and grainy, highish carbonation. Decent

gegwilson (2524) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2015
Bottle from a Welsh Tesco. Pors golden with a frothy head and a fair few suspended particles despite haveing had a few days to settle. Seems to be a common theme with the care Celt Experience bottles. The aroma has some promising tropical fruit with grapefruit especially. The taste is nicely bitter with lots of grapefruit flavour. Nice easy drinking. Very good for what it is.
