mile (3888) - 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.
