Harpoon Celtic Ale

Harpoon Brewery
Boston, MA

Grade: B
ABV: 5.4%
Style: Irish-Style Red
Serve in: English pint

Pours an amber/copper with a creamy head that lingers on. The lacing is spidery-goodness that settles throughout the entirety of the beer. Aroma is light toffee, caramel, and with a slight fruitiness.

A mild hop bitterness allows a malty sweetness to come through, along with some bright, bubblegum-like flavors. Floral yeasts and a light touch of alcohol make it a rather simple beer, but nice. It’s creamy and smooth, with a dry and toasty graininess that lingers throughout. Overall very balanced and easy to drink
