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 golden amber with a nice off white head leaving some lace. Aroma is malty, a bit sweet and hoppy with a touch of fruityness. Acidy crisp mouthfeel. Flavor is malty, sweet and hoppy; average lager. Medium palate. Finishes with a nice bitter hoppy aftertaste. One of the beers I grew up with...

Väriltään Karhu III:n isoveli on tumman kultainen. Valkoista vaahtoa ei muodostu hirveästi, mutta jonkin verran ja kuten arvata saattaa, se katoaa nopeasti pois. Mitään selkeitä aromeja en tästä erota. Humalointia tässä on maun perusteella jonkin verran. Ihan pikkaisen makea kai. Vielä pari vuotta sitten Karhu oli niitä oluita, joihin käteni shoppaillessa helpoimmin tarttui. Niin se maku vain muuttuu. Kallistahan tämä ei ole, mutta lieneekö siltikään hintansa väärti?

altonbrownd (5419) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2011
Can from Finnish Cafe in Brussels. Body light amber with puffy head. Nose of malts and corn. Taste very lager-like of malts, toffee and corny finish. Watery and easy texture. But not bad at all.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Small head, hoppy lager style smell. No suprices, it’s a lager. This drink could be any berliner any where in world. Second sip is nice and easy to have.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2010
Pours dark golden with a small white head; aroma is light malty with hints of grassy hops; flavor is rather malty, sweetish, but with dry finish, light bitterness, hints of grass; light-medium body with aggressive carbonation. Better than the III-version as a bit maltier and more pleasantly hopped - still quite sharp, and, for the strength, rather thin.
