50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 07/2012
Aroma is really light with some toffee, hay, caramel and biscuits. Flavour has nice hops with toffee, nuts, caramel, hints of hay and biscuits. The fruity hops is the thing here; otherwise this would be just another bitter.

mile (3753) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 3, 2012
Bottle. Amber, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, light fruitiness, light caramel and toffee, faint citrus hoppyness. Medium, malty and sweetish flavor, light roasted malt and light fruitiness, some caramel and faint toffee, faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, light roasted malt and light toffee, some citrus hoppyness. OK bitter which is not too sweet/not too much caramel – light roasted malt dried the finish.
