Milestone was produced to mark the 1000th brew on Arran. Bottle conditioned beer was chosen due to the increasing demand for the excellent characteristics and flavour produced by having beer with live yeast in the bottle.
This beer has a superb character and has been described as a real “beer for the beer drinking person”.
It is equally good drunk on its own as it is with most, fuller flavoured, foods.
Nose: Strong essences of orange,lemon and a slightly tropical aroma are represented.
Palate: Suggestions of tropical fruit flavours with some Cascade and Styrian hops. Mild spice features too.
Appearance: Clear copper red in colour with a thick open white head.
Finish: Medium bodied and very fruity throughout with a slight citrus tang and hints of alcohol too. The carbonation is medium to high and the finish is a sweet one.
ABV: 6% vol.
