Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

so I'm at the beer store and I'm picking up a couple of beers I'd been looking for and there in the cooler is this harppon celtic ale. can't recall seeing this before so I figured why not. pours a nice red color with a solid white head. taste is malt, tea and an oxidized note. light bodied and proably if it had not come across as oxidized, it would've been nice with dinner.
