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.

Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Toasty and honey malty aroma with light floral hops. The flavor has light floral hops, pale malts, some honey sweetness, and toasted grains. Nice enough.

Tap at the 2010 LIC Craft Beer Festival. Copper pour with standard white head. Faint aroma with notes of some grain and malt; I think this was served too cold. Flavor of grains, honey, and a touch of styrofoam. The honey gives it a slight stickiness in the finish, which is the best part of the beer. Crisp and tingly on the palate.

ben4321 (6668) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10

Aroma: The nose has some caramel, toffee, toast, yeast, and a bit of spice
Appearance: This is an amber-brown colored beer with a small tan head
Flavor: The taste is fairly malty, somewhat sweet, lots of caramel, and a bit of spice
Palate: It has a light-medium body, fairly sessionable, and drinks pretty nicely
Overall Impression: A halfway decent Irish Ale. Nothing overly special, but a solid example of the style in my opinion. Overall, I thought the beers I tried from this brewery at the festival were pretty good, and I look forward to getting a hold of some more of their stuff in the future.

UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Sampled at the Long Ireland tent at Brewfest NYC 2010 on Gov Island. A solid irish ale with some decent flavor that shows promise for sessionability. Super light hop that’s pretty much dominated by a clean sweet malt character.

Draft sample at NY Brew Fest 2010. Pours amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of cinnamon, sweet malts, and bready/yeasty notes. Thin bodied with a sweet, soft palate. Average Irish ale. I concur with Pwn3d. The standard Long Ireland Pale Ale was much better.

Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2010
Sampled during Brew Fest 2010 on Governor’s Island. I didn’t like this as much as the Pale Ale, which I can’t find on RB. This was much more mellow, with some nice honey notes. Good brewery description, not your traditional Irish Red.

3.2
jtclockwork (17070) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Bottle at Pilsner Pete’s RBSG. Nice all around beer. Pours a dark reddish brown. Nose is floral hops, sweet caramel. Taste is pleasantly hoppy with a touch of juniper.
