Cloudy light brown and red pour with a little cloudiness. There is absolutely no head on this. The aroma is apple cider with a touch of vinegar. Also a hint of ginger. The taste is a sour funky barnyard. It is slight apple with hints of wood. I suppose the wood is the juniper branches coming out. It is a refreshing and different beer. It is almost a cross between a lambic and a cider.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - NOV 3, 2004
(on bottle)Amber-red and extremt low carbonated beer, with a light vinous/woody sent; it´s looking good by now. But then one tastes the brew and it is strange. I like jupier jazzed beers, but this one is a bit too metallic and directly unpleasant. I even had a stomackacke after halft a bottle...

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2004
Bottled. Dark amber, no head. Sweet malty nose, with suggested juniper aroma. Soft malty, little cigarette smokey or dusty. A bit too sweet in style(?) for my liking, with no bitterness.

Ungstrup (29081) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2006 An amber beer with an orange head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with stale fruits. The flavor is also sweet matly with strong notes of juniper.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2005 Amber colour. Sweet, malty, toasty aroma. Similar palate, with distinctive sugar notes. Sahti made to have a long shelflife is the same as bread made to have a long shelflife - a shitty shadow of the real thing.

madsberg (10136) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2004
Bottled: Orange coloured. Clear. White small head. Sweet and fruity aroma. Flavour is honeyish and waterish. Not much going on here, and it totally dissappears after the previous lineup of the day.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2004
Malty rubbery aroma, caramel, toffee. Amber brown clear with no head. Medium watery with light carbonation. Sweet, malty, pine dust, and juniper. Finish and after are pretty sweet. Chalky dry after.

omhper (19194) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2004
Bottled. According to trustworthy sources the label is misleading, and this beer is actually brewed by Saimaan Panimo on behalf of Lammin Sahti. It is orange brown and clear and has a appley aroma. Sweet and fruity with some banana. Lightly bready. Dull compared to real sahti

Bottled (BB 12/2004)
Dark amber color with small off-white mostly vanishing head. Fruity sweet aroma with hints of juniper. Sweetish with some bitter bite too, banana, juniper. This is better for my taste than "real" sahti.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2004
Fruity aroma with no foam and carbonated buzz when opening bottle. Brown colored and somehow cloudy appearance. Full bodied and creamy mouthfeel, reminds me strongly of some Finnish Sahtis with palate. Fruity, mild banana flavor lasts long to have very mild hops or no carbonation at all. Somehow spicy or juniper aftertaste. I’m not very big friend of beers with no carbonation, but I rate this to be better than the most popular Finnish sahtis. Still, after having such a nice label too, this beer was a little disappointment.
