Huvila Arctic Circle Ale is a chestnut coloured ale with a malty/fruity odour. It tastes of dark fruits and caramel malts and finishes off with a nice bitter hop tail. It is brewed with both juniper twigs and a large dose of Finnish attitude. It is available on tap an in bottles in bars and restaurants across Finland. The beer has also featured among the seasonal Christmas beers at Alko, the Finnish monopoly retail distributor of beers with more than 4.7% Alc. Arctic Circle Ale is also imported into the US through Shelton Brothers.

Mora2000 (6101) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Picked up during a trip to Baton Rouge. Not my first Sahti, but my first Sahti that was brewed in Finland. Excited to try this one, as it is also my first beer from Finland. The beer pours a dark brown-orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the caramel and toffee malt. I don’t get the juniper in the aroma. That being said, the juniper is present in the flavor. I also get some smoked malt and and toffee, as well as a little bit of chocolate. All of the flavors meld well together and make an enjoyable beer. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottled. Deep ruby color, small steady beige head, lace. Rye, dark fruits, licorice, cocoa powder, bread and wood in the nose. Lots of caramel, cocoa, raisins, spices, some hops in the finish. Above average body. Some alcohol in the aftertaste. I can’t trace juniper. Quite interesting brew from Huvila.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 23, 2010
Bottle sampled on 4/5/09: Pours a transparent amber orange with a frothy, small-bubbled light tan head with stringy-lacing. Aroma of sweet doughy caramel with a touch of honey and English hops. Body starts with good fullness and sweet caramely maltiness with a touch of earthy hops and some floral juniper character before a toasty, drier warming finish. A pretty decent brew, but could use more complexity.
