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.

Draught at Beer Authority, NYC. Amber beer with a quite nice beige head. Malty toffee aroma, fruity, grapes, pear, spicy notes, some hay. Caramel flavor, bread, toffee, spicy, pear and some biscuits. A bit simple, but no off flavors.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks zvikar. Hazy reddish amber. Slightly sourish aroma with a big of vinegar, yeast, malt, caramel and some overripe fruits. Sweetish-sourish flavor with malt, yeast, graininess, some fruitiness and a bit of harsh bitterness. Medium-bodied. Seems like something went wrong here.

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.

JoeMcPhee (9519) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2009
Deep amber beer. The nose is quite nutty and sweet with a fairly prominent crystal malt character. Fairly chewy but not underattenuated. Sweet and simple. It’s fairly typical for the style, but it’s well-made.

bytemesis (9015) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle - bomber. Pours clear deep reddish amber with a medium quickly diminishing beige head, dissipates to a ring but laces fairly well. Aroma is very malty, nutty, toffee, caramel. Flavor follows, medium sweet, no real bitterness, malts coming at you from every direction, some honey as well. A bit of a lingering odd, a bit tart, finish, but otherwise not so bad. Medium body.

jredmond (8518) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 27, 2010
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.

2.9
mansquito (6815) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 29, 2016
At the source: pours light amber with a whitish head. Aroma is light hops, light caramel, and toast. Lightly bitter. Not very sweet. Very easy. Nothing too complicated.

3.2
ben4321 (6678) - 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.
