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.

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.

Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governorís 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 thatís 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.

Sampled during Brew Fest 2010 on Governorís Island. I didnít like this as much as the Pale Ale, which I canít find on RB. This was much more mellow, with some nice honey notes. Good brewery description, not your traditional Irish Red.

Bottle at Pilsner Peteís 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.

Growler fill from PJ Beverage: red/brown color, sweet caramel, sugary. apricots and some burnt sugar. arouma is grainy. smooth mouthfeel and nice carboonation. Nice hoppy bite, and pine notes. Also getting some throat-tingling pepper notes towards the middle. Nice. Iím expecting some nice things from this brewery. Hopefully, theyíll ramp up distributions.

Pours a deep amber with some nice notes of malts. The malt rolls into a decent base with some light hops that finish it at the end.
