Untamed Karhu is the strongest in its breed. Its full original gravity gives it a substantial and strong taste. Karhu is a full-bodied beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2008
Pale gold with a scant froth. Faint elements of corn and hay find sharp butter and sulphur notes poking through. Minimal flavour of sweetcorn and straw decays into a softly acidic, limping finish. Frail body, slick, with weak carbonation.

Frustratingly light; flaws stand out against a pale background.

33 cl can, best before 16.04.2009. Tasted blind in a class III showdown, 8th place (of 8).

janir (216) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2008
A dark golden color, thin white head. Aroma is some kind of berry, much sweet malty and a bit hoppy. Sweet malty flavor and slighlty hoppy finish. Light-bodied palate is a bit carbonated, bit watery too.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 5, 2008
Golden, slightly rocky pale head. Very light aroma with a hint of sweet malts. Flavor is sweet malts and light hayish hops. Mild and clean. Light to medium bodied, smoothly carbonated palate. At least it’s not mineral. A hometown beer, goddamn (perkele)!

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a longlasting white head. Malty bready and grassy aroma. Smooth bready malty flavor with some grassy hints. Sweet malty finish with almost no bitterness in the aftertaste.

Can brought from Finland by a friend (thanks Sara!)
This poured a deep golden body in the midst of which an impressive torrent of carbonation surged to the small but thick and persistant white head making this possibly the fizziest lager I’ve had. The nose was weak, but kinda nice, fruity, caramelly maltiness ruptured from time to time by dust and just a hint of acidity. The taste is kinda weak as well, but balanced. A weak astringent/bitter hopiness forms the background and the aftertaste, and the maltiness, too subdued, but fruity and pleasant makes the front. Notes of lemon and a really weak hint of alcohol round it up. This does its job quite well, and I’ve had far worse.
