COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer. The Celtic Ale is the first beer we released as a company, and itís still one of our favorites. This beer is old-school traditional Irish ale; this is not designed to be an Irish Red. We brew it just how beer was produced 400 years ago. Like Long Island, Ireland is an island, too, where exotic ingredients werenít always readily available ó so brewers used ingredients that they could get locally. Our Celtic Ale is brewed with four different malts, flaked oats, and honey, it has a smooth , dry finish with a low bitterness from Willamette hops.

My wife picked this up on a whim in Long Island, and we enjoyed it at a party with a New Yorker, and it was okay. Analyzing it however, I find it just above average. The aroma is sweet, and it looks like a ale (it is) in the glass. The taste is a little more bitter than Iíd like, but very drinkable. For the palate, no distinct flavors come out and grab me. Overall itís a good ale, but itís nothing special.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with thin head that dissipates to nothing quickly. No lace. Nose of sweet brown malts, toffee, dough. Medium body. Ok for the style. I would not have again.
