RBESG2008: 33 cL bottle as Kataja IVB. Pours hazy orange to brown with a lacing white head. Light alcohol, malt and mild spiced aroma. Flavour is citric and malty/cornish. Mild spiced. Finish is spiced and lingering citric. Infected I assume.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Is this "Sahti"? Well, it seems to come from a Sahti brewery. Amber coloured, quite flat, absolutely no head. Very fruity and fresh on the nose - almost sodapop-like. Quite sweet and bitter with a somewhat candy-like body in between. It might sound unpleasant but is quite the contrary. Very unusual. 160405

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2005
Bottle. Rusty brown no head at all. Aroma of bread with hints of juniper berries. Soft and smooth palate. Flavour of juniper berries and a bit alcohol with hints of bread. No aftertaste to talk about. Wellbalanced taste.

omhper (19945) - 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

madmitch76 (16111) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
3rd August 2008. No carbonation. Mild caramelly taste with a vague hint of something fruity underneath. Inoffensive but surprisingly bland!

yngwie (14069) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2007
Bottled. It pours almost hazy, golden brown with a small beige head. Caramel, roastiness and some sourness in the aroma. The flavor has caramel and some sourness. Thin to medium body with a little bit of astringency. Short finish, except for some lasting sourness. Not my cup of tea. (070302)

MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2006
Bottle, 7%, as Puhti Olut IV B. Sweet and peppery juniper aroma. Clear brown colour, very small light brown head. Low carbonation, just enough. Very caramelly flavour and aftertaste. Sweet, malty and semi-nice.
