Tap (St Urho’s, Helsinki, Sahti Days 2012)
Very vegetal. Dodgy, to be honest. Maybe onion and chicory. Not a good sahti, probably not as the brewer intended.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught@St.Urho’s, rated 2011-05-11) Muddy medium brown with no head. Sweet sahti malt in the nose, with a touch of junipery sourness. Lots of salty licorice and anise in the flavor - not suiting the style, but tasting damn good. Quite thick and full-bodied with no CO2. Not very sahti-like, but pretty nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown body, no head. Aroma has alcohol, some sweet yeast and fruits. Flavour has sweet chocolate, fruits. Soft and oily mouthfeel. Raisins on finish.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St Urho’s, Helsinki, Finland.
Murky dark brown colour with tiny off-white head.
Very sweet brown sugary aroma. Flavour is also very sweet. Brown sugar is very pushy. Some maltiness. Low carbonation. No real Sahti flavour.

Draught@St. Urho’s Pub
Dark murky color, no head. Aroma of juniper, banana and some licorice herbs. Medium-bodied. Juniper, semi-sweet banana, interesting roasted notes, some bean-vegetably flavors. Aftertaste has even some ashy notes. Decent first Sahti from this nano brewery.
