COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Celtic Ale has been the flagship beer for GoldenValley Brewery since 1993. The Hops added to the kettle are Chinook, Liberty, Willamette, and Tettnag with Fuggles used in the steep for aromatics. The use of imported Crystal, Carastan, Roast, and Chocolate malts as well as domestic Two-Row malt creates a complex and bold profile which balances and enhances the aggressive hopping.

On tap at Golden Valley, pours a clear amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma is gentle, with bready caramel and a touch of resin. Flavour is more robust, with a good mix of resinous hops and bready caramel malt. Has a nice woody component to it as well. Quite decent.

Bomber from LifeSource. Very deep hazy amber in color. Very light nose. A touch of sweet maltiness is all. Fairly rich and malty up front. Very malt dominant with a little bitterness lingering in the background. Good and clean. Tasty little brew.
