Celt Experience "Native Storm"
The Celt Experience - Caerphilly, Wales
English Bitter (ABV 4.4%)

[Suggested Glassware: Nonic Pint]

Rating: 3.6/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

The pour was a lightly cloudy medium chestnut brown with an average (1-2 fingers) off white frothy head that reduced down to a puddled film and large collar with good sticky spotty lacing.

The aroma was moderately malty with a biscuit malt, light floral hops and a sweet doughy yeast along with notes of caramel, citrus (orange and tangerine) and a mild fruity ester (raisons and figs).

The taste was good and malty with a moderate caramel sweetness which was present throughout, and then progressed with a bit of fruitiness along with a mild hop presence and a good bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted an average time proceeding the swallow, with a sweet bitter citrusy taste lingering on the taste buds for a bit longer.

Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with a watery yet dry texture and a very soft carbonation.

Overall I really enjoyed drinking this brew, it possessed just the right balance of sweet malts and bitter hops...
