COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship beer. The Celtic Ale is the first beer we released as a company, and it’s 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 weren’t always readily available — 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.

Poured 2 - 12 oz bottles into a tall .5 liter glass. The only impressive thing about this beer is the color. This beer’s color belies its flavor, making this a very disappointing ale. There was no head through the entire 6 pack. Barely an aroma. A very simple and unmemorable ale that lacks any malt or hops. This brew relies on its honey components, which in the end wind up tasting like tin. I would not buy this again.

Bomber at home. Aroma of caramel malts, figs, raisins. A simple, flavorful, and very well balanced clear amber ale. Notes of berries and toffee. Quick, crisp, finish. Slight acidity.

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 I’d like, but very drinkable. For the palate, no distinct flavors come out and grab me. Overall it’s a good ale, but it’s 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.
