The Celt Experience - Bronze Ale
 
Pours clear copper colour with a huge and lasting white head.
Aroma of sweet grain, earth and a hint of flowery hops.

Feel is very rich, creamy and full.
Taste starts with a caramel malt flavour, lot's of toasted grain and touches of earth with a bright floral and slightly citrus bitterness.
This is a very well blended flavour, everything fits together nicely, no taste tries to dominate. The low alcohol makes it a good candidate for a session or two and the bright bitterness in the finish keeps it clean enough to have several.
I only have this one at the moment but I will be picking up more.

Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion

A dark copper coloured beer with a medium sized but short lived off-white head.
The aroma is biscuit, maple syrup or brown sugar and citrus.
Feel is medium rich, smooth and creamy.
This one is in the American India Pale Ale style but is more subdued in the hop balance than many of the American versions.
There is still a lot of citrus hops but they are built on top of a solid malt base of biscuit and brown sugar tastes. Some grass notes come through and the blend is quite well balanced.
The hops add a very bright feel to the beer and it makes a great summer BBQ drink.

Pours dark copper with a thin white head.
Dough, maple syrup and a hint of citrus make up the aroma.
Nice creamy mouth feel.
Great malt flavor balanced very well by the citrus hop flavor.
Well done.

We are strong supporters of Ontario Craft Brewers. Ask for them at your local LCBO in Ontario or better yet, visit one or all of their breweries. You will be glad you did.

Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion

Dark copper in color with a thin white head.
Aroma is citrus and new mown grass. Very pleasant.
Slightly creamy on the tongue.
A nice drinking beer for the summer.
Definite citrus flavor with a hopped finish, which I find refreshing. Hops are evident but not overpowering.



I like it when some of my local brewers start experimenting. I am going to have to try this one and keep watching for anything new they might be planning. I like their new name as well, "Flying Monkeys" has a nice whimsical sound to it.

I went to a convention last weekend and I decided to take a 24 of Hoptical Illusion with me for all to taste. Of the nineteen people eighteen were very impressed and the lone dissenter just said it wasn't what She was used to.

I have some chilling as I type. Just waiting for a decent hour to try it. Okay. It's noon. Time to try it.

Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion

Nice copper, red color with a pure white short lived head.
Seems to be a fair amount of carbonation. I've been to the brewery. This is sure to be natural fizz.
Sweetness and some bitterness are the predominant aromas. Smells like bread, honey and some citrus.
Great mouth feel.
Perfectly balalnced brew. The malt and hops play off each other to make this an exceptional beer.
I like it alot!

Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion

Nice gold color with a creamy white head. Lots of lace.
Has a nice aroma. Some fruit and a kind of sweetness.
A hop bite at the start but followed by the sweetness of the malt. Very nicely balanced. I could drink a bunch of these.
