[2015 Backlog] Sampled at Paul’s place. Pours a hazy amber body with soft carbonated lacing. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with notes of sugar, soft vague fruit, spice, banana and malty bread.

Kuparinruskea väri, ei lainkaan vaahtoa. Hajussa hiivaisuutta, mutta vähemmän kuin Pihamaan Talvessa. Maku makeahko, mutta ei niin makea kuin Pihamaan Talvessa.

dwyerpg (5683) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Very similar to the lighter version. The alcohol is just slightly more noticeable and the juniper just slightly more intense. A strange brew, that I’m certain must vary widely between breweries.

It’s in the 1001 beers to try before you die, and I’m in Tampere, Finland. So why not indulge. Bananas! On the nose and on the palate. I was informed by my host to drink it very chilled. Admits not bad. Not good though. You feel the strength hit you, but it doesn’t taste strong. Perfectly drinkable! Although its 75cl and 10% might stop you having too many that nigh.

IslandHaole (1228) - 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 (18744) - 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.
