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.

330ml can (K-Citymarket Sello, Espoo). Dark golden color. Medium size, white-beige head, stays. Acetone, malts, paper, cardboard, cereals in aroma. Malty, cereals, hop extract, burnt caramel and dusty in taste. Hop extract, dusty paper and glue in aftertaste. So watery. Nope.

(bottle, 33cl, Beijing) Aroma: not much of a nose. some sweet maltiness and old bread. Appearance: not sure if it is a watered down ale or a robust looking lager. clear, so-so head that dissipates very quickly. Taste: caramelized fruit, some sweet richness and smoke, light hops, touch of rum/bourbon essence. Palate: a bit fizzy, some bitter follow through, light oiliness, slippery. Overall: A bit strange flavor coming from the malts and/or hops that it is bit interesting, but overall, the beer’s shortcomings in nose and flavor and body make it an average beer (at best). Kind of a hardy summer beer.

568ml can bought from supermarket in Raahe, Finland. Light bodied lager with a bit of syrupy sweetness, watery bread malts and weak hoppy finish. Offers slightly more taste than average bulk lager.

Karhu III is a light amber lager that radiates lovely caramel flavors on top of a slightly hoppy aroma. Foam is serious and persistent and in terms of taste, it offers elegant caramel malt. In some moments between malt fullness and finale can seem a little water and anonymous. Hop bitterness is semi-dry and does not hold the aftertaste so long. Nevertheless, it is a tasty, thirst-quenching and easy to drink lager which, however, does not leave the biggest impression in the memory.

0,33 can. Caramel color. Thicker head but not long lasting. Weak malty aroma. Waterly, medium sweetness, lightly bitter. Nothing to point out. Drinkable.

Sweet, malty, corn, but anyway for me still better than other widely available Finish lagers.

Malty taste with hints of light syrup, orange and bread. A finish classic that a lot of my friends drinks all the time.

puszka 1l. niestety dawno nie piłem gorszego piwa, jakaś strasznie cieńka lurka bez smaku i aromatu, do tego stopnia bezpłciowe, że zatanawiałem się nawet, czy ta ciecz zawiera alkohol, Podobnie niestety smakowały mi inne fińskie piwa, które piłem. Te piwo to chyba też element prohibicyjenj polityki w Finlandii...

Can. Darker golden, whitish head. Sweet malty notes perhaps in aroma. A bit of same sweetness in taste with hints of bitterness.
