IslandHaole (1201) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - NOV 5, 2015
A big "Mahalo" to Rosenbergh (Jan) for dragging this and another dozen or so beers all the way from Finland to Hawaii! Very similar in appearance and aroma to the 8% version. Sweet, bananas and caramel with bubblegum and light alcohol .A hazy caramel colored beer. Very sweet & fruity. Very little carbonation. Not sure if it’s the extra 2% that gives this an extra kick, but I prefer this, stronger Sahti.

Leighton (17195) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2015
Plastic bottle shared to commemorate the finale of Jack’s visit to London. Thanks to Paul for this fine offering. Pours hazy golden-brown. The nose holds doughy wheat, orange and ripe, bruised up banana. Medium to heavy sweet flavor, syrupy, with more old banana, wheat dough. Full bodied, soft, oily and chewy. Viscous. Warming on the finish with chewy, ripe fruits, banana, bread. OK stuff.

Bottle split at Jack The Sipper leaves for the FBI again tasting, thanks to Scopey, 14/07/15. Murky orange amber with a decent beige covering. Nose is earthy fruit, light fart, spice, rhubarb, straw. Taste is a little harsh, rich dark fruit, juniper, spice, bitter edge. Full bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with sweet’n’sour lickings. Ok but preferred the lower ABV version.

Farewell Jack bottleshare at Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Paul for this unusual beer. Hazy reddish amber with no head. Palate is smooth and semi dry, no carbonation. Bubblegum. Tangy fruits. Cranberry. Little spice. Light finish. Holds together quite well and is certainly tasty.

jackl (6680) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Plastic bottle @ Clerkenwell Share. Thanks, Paulo. Hazy deep amber pour with a small bubbly white head. Really strong musty fermented apple aroma. Quite sweet and fruity. Berry mash and notes of allspice and cinnamon. The flavor is tangy and a touch acidic. Caramel-steeped grain. Musty peach skin. Pretty thick and chewy. Strange, but not unappealing.

The_Osprey (5288) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Bottle share at CBC Clerkenwell. Many thanks to Paul for another sahti. Clear plastic bottle, BB Aug 2015, 10.1%. Cloudy dirty orange, no head at all, still. Aroma is apple, earthy, plastic, alcohol. Body is medium, light carbonation, smooth. Taste is honey, earthy, resinous, solvent. More solvent in the flavour than in their normal sahti. Preferred the other version.

MannyGoldberg (182) - The big bad LDN, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 15, 2015
14th July tasting at CBC EC1. Big up the man like Scopey on this one, my first ever Sahti tick. Looks a bit like a glass of Berocca, loads of sediment. Aroma is very sweet with orange, citrus, maybe a bit of banana. Taste is fruity with a bit of spice. Very oily mouthfeel with not much carbonation. Booze is very well hidden. Enjoyed this one.

Hazy dark reddish copper color with a tiny frothy rainbow-colored ring. Very strong sugary sweetness, banana sweetness, sahti maltiness and some juniper and spicy notes in the aroma. Rich sahti aroma. The flavour is sweetness, sugar, banana, sahti malt, alcohol, some bitterness and juniper. No carbonation. A bit less alcohol and that’s it.
