International recognition for Okells product

A speciality beer created by Isle of Man brewers Okells has been named in the World Beer Awards.

Okells' Aile, a smoked beer, won the Best Flavoured Porter category.

The drink was launched six years ago after careful research and a series of taste trials.

Aile means 'fire' in Gaelic and the product is described as a 'niche' beer.

It's sold in autumn and winter in bottles only, with the draught version saved for pub drinkers in January.

Okells recently won a silver and two bronze awards at the International Beer Challenge.
