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.

Pours pale clear golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of light grain and a bit sweet malts and grass. Flavour of sweetish malts, dry hay, grain and some metal. Straightforward and easy to drink.

Poured a light copper, head disappeared almost immediately, taste was so weak I was incredulous. Smelled slightly more promising, light and refreshing.

drpimento (2153) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Best thing about this beer is its aroma. Poured with a fizzy white head that settled out right away and no lace. Color is a deep amber with lots of large bubble trails. Aroma is beery, malt, and a little hop. Flavor is sharp with the carbonic tang and sweet, but not all malt sweet. Also a little wet cardboard. Body’s on the thin side and carbonation is overdone. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. Don’t want any more.

Geokkjer (5538) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of grassy hops, fruitiness, malt and yellow apples. Flavor is sweer and malty with some grassy and metallic notes.

Kita (977) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 13, 2011
Canned, pint. Pours clear golden colour with medium sized creamy white head. Malty aroma with hints of grains. Medium sweetish taste with short and mild hoppy aftertaste. Light bodied with thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Average lager, however with slightly stronger character than Karjala...

Can. My favourite of Finnish bulk lagers. Stronger taste than in most Finnish lagers.

MikeKeller (801) - Kemi, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2011
Can. Coppery coloured Karhu II darker than finnish pale lagers usually are. Sweetish malty taste is a bit harsh and reasonably strong. Maybe the most popular mass lager in Finland.

Gedronken in Zweden bij zwager Herman. Goed bier maar maar komt ook uit een goede stal.

3/5 in darkness. Smells malty, Slight malty taste with a malty finish. Nothing special

On draft in Helsinki. Nothing special here. Clear and crisp, but watery and lacking flavour.
