COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A special bottom-fermented beer brewed with respect to tradition for the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Breweries' Union. Hartwall Roggenbier's soft malty and aromatic flavor is born from the balance of rye malt and light hops. A full tenth of rye malt gives this unique full malt beer its beautiful reddish color.

Reddish color, thick light head and nice lace. Malty and bitter nose. Light to medium body, smooth and balanced, fizzy. Moderate bitter, rye-like flavor. Bitter, rye-like and long finish.

One of my favorites during a recent Scandinavia trip. It's on the weeet side and has noticeable rye flavor to it. Malty and very enjoyable with all its yeasty goodness.

Pale amber. Rather neutral aroma. Fruity, quite light bodied, rather sweet with a pleasant bready touch. Slightly bitterish finish.

Hugely overcarbonated. This beer has a really big head that is unwilling to stay in the glass while the beer is being poured. Soft, sourish aroma. Very neutral taste, hardly any malt or hops. Finishes unpleasantly bitter. You would expect more from a special 100 years anniversary celebration brew, but that’s what you get...
