The Douglas Celtic XXXtra Strong recalls that era of valiant warriors, eager for adventure. Its high alcohol content is itself suggestive of the perilous raids that brave men would undertake ‘for a dare’. Here is a noble beer to drink as you gaze into the distance on the lookout for future conquests, and whose powerful flavour evokes the turmoil of battle.
This is a pinnacle in the strong pale ale category. It has a velvety, dense feel and a flavour that is bitter but not harsh, with a certain piquancy on the tongue. Douglas Celtic XXXtra Strong unleashes all its alcoholic flavour on the palate right to the very back of the mouth, where it leaves a long and excellent aftertaste. It must be drunk ice cold in order to retain its severe and fascinating flavour.
