Red to brown looks with decent head. Beautiful beer. Scent has rye malts and much bitter juniper berries. Full malt body, and rye actually works here. Drying after taste with not that much hops but bitter juniper. This was an positive surprise.

dtborelli (322) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 21, 2010
Huvila Arctic Circle Ale Pours medium to dark brown with a thinner tannish head and low retention. Seems oily. Aroma is of black tea with spices and juniper. Some booze and a hint of anise. Flavor is smooth and oily with slight bitter hops, black tea and maybe some rye. Pretty good and would purchase again

Tasting at beer 14. Aroma has lots of malt and juniper. Rasting is light at first. Then you get the darker malts coming through.

Bottle. Muddy brown/reddish pour with fast diminishing tan head. Sweet malty aroma with just a hint of tar. Taste is balanced with some bitterness. Quite high carbonation.

SimonTja (276) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 31, 2014
Very different bitterness on this one, very different ale in general, I guess it’s a Sahti. Rye is nice, very nice mouthfeel, a bit fruity feel to it, quite a bit bitterness, but nicely balanced, and the malt gives very interesting new falvours that I don’t really resemble with beer, but soy, maybe butterscotch, and leather feel to it...
