COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1121) - FINLAND - JUL 26, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2008 Can. Pours a golden colour with a thin head. The aroma is very light with hint malt. The flavour is also very light, notes of malt and some bitterness. Nothing special, better than most of the Finnish bulk lagers, but not much more.

Kavu (3475) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 18, 2008
Although it’s praised by many, I can’t make any difference between Karhu and rest of the finnish lagers. Looks, smells and tastes painfully ordinary. Drinkable but nothing special.

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)!

KungFoo (7) - FINLAND - APR 4, 2008 does not count
Light bodied, clear, bulk lager. SImply the best among mainstream Finnish lagers.

ProblemBase (4) - Kokkola, FINLAND - DEC 14, 2007 does not count
Quite typical finnish bulk beer. Taste like malt, quite bitter, simple, waterly. Serve chilled!

anders37 (20883) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 14, 2007
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.

Light yellow. Tastes like moldy grain. What’s Finnish for "crap"?
