This is a strong traditional ale with intense malt flavours and a citrus hop aroma. A very smooth beer with a well-rounded, distinctly "moreish" finish.

mile (3787) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle. Light golden, average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, some citrus – grassy hoppyness, faint fruitiness and caramel. Body is light to medium, malty – faint wheat and lightly sweetish flavor, some citrus hoppyness and caramel. Finish is average, malty – faint wheat and lightly sweetish, some citrus hoppyness and caramel. OK bitterness but too much caramel sweetness considering the body.
