The Celt Experience Brewery Golden Ale (4.2%)

Golden AleAfter an evening of bad beer this is like the nectar of the Gods.
Celt’s Golden Ale pours a lovely, if unsurprising, sunshine gold and has a big fluffy cumulonimbus of a head.
The smell is fresh hedgerow, sharp and bitter and leafy, with sweet sugary edges.
Taking a mouthful the malts are sticky with runny honey, a little earthy with baked bran flakes and scattered liberally with mixed peppercorns.
There’s a load of apple juice and peach skins too, as well as a very good walnut woodiness.
The hops are knife sharp and intensely floral, with masses of chamomile, green herbal leaves, nettle tea and a tiny splash of mint sauce.
All this makes for a long and pleasingly dry finish.
