Medium straw, white head. Hoppy, fruity, citrusy nose, malt, peaches, flowers. Dry, medium body, high bitterness. Hoppy, spicy taste, malt, grapefruit, peaches, apricot, herbs. (2011-03-16) 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2012
bottle. June 2013 BBD. lightly hazed bronze body with a tall and lasting off-white head. succulent coffee cake malt consumes the nose: spiced bread, honey / nectar, multi-grain crackers, clean and quite whiskey-like. hops provide balanced grass and fruit (dried pineapple and apricots) character, and the yeast is properly musty, dusty and rustic. medium-full body with a rich and sticky malt bite with touches of fresh peat; hops are modestly bitter and slightly resinous; yeast lends an old-world basement must and dried fruit quality. a bit sharp and smacking with a slight excess of alcohol for my tastes, but the body is lush and round and the carbonation full and fitting for the weight. another stellar English-style beer from Celt, and quite fresh, just arriving in state a couple of weeks ago.

Two fingers of head, that held nicely. Opaque, dark straw colored body.
Big lemon zest smell, some barnyard (wet grain) and honey too.
A stubborn lemon bitterness up front... refuses to cease. A bit of malt sweetness comes through. Long finish with the bitter.
Crisp and medium body. Fairly low carbonation.
An enjoyable ale with a big helping of hops. ken1 (2202) - DENMARK - JUN 17, 2013

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a slight off-white head. Soft grapefruit aroma. Med body. Flavor is grapefruit and floral. Some malt background. It’s definitely on the bitter side. Just a lot different from US ales. Which in this case seems to be a good thing. Wyrd_Brewery (12) - - FEB 21, 2014
Relatively strong fruity aroma, but not as strong as other celt ales. Strong bitter taste, with a lasting citrus hops taste. Full mouth feel. Generally a refreshing ale without too much fuss. SarkyNorthener (5012) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
