Harpoon Celtic Ale features a deep amber color. The flavor is malty and complex. Celtic Ale has a moderate hop finish that, along with the generous amounts of malt, makes for a medium bodied, smooth, rich beer. Try serving Celtic Ale with a hearty stew… the beer’s robust character will complement the bold flavors.

Mild, but refreshing, and not without some darker, earthy-amber richness, while remaining mostly aethereal and crisp.

Might have been one of my first craft beers. Its nothing extrodinary, but given the style its no supposed to be. Easy drinking and simple. Nutty, tea like maltiness, lager like crispness.

04/05/13 On tap at Rattle N Hum, NYC. This is malt, malt, malt. Not shy at all. Surprisingly refreshing for something so assertive. Nice body & not sweet. Noticeable, but not in an in your face kind of way.
