Atlantic Brewery – Celtic Red Ale 5%
This ale is red-chestnut in colour with a malt toffee and plum fruit aroma. It comes with a hop citrus fruit bitterness and a sweet malty toffee caramel background.
Celtic Red Ale is an organic ale, which may be more bitter than a traditional English Bitter ale but it has a good malt background giving it a warming sweet balance. It is a good autumnal ale.
My tasting was a bottle conditioned ale so needed to be served cold but benefiting from warming a little once served!
