3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Bryggeri Helsinki. Murky orange/brown shade with no head. Not too appealing but I’ll forgive it. Aroma is bread, berries, rubber. Mouthfeel a little oily. Taste is pretty complex. Similar to the aroma but also slightly smoky. I also get a better sense of the juniper than the Finlandia example I tried. This may be closer to the style guidelines, but I like it less as a beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, from a barrel (or lookalike). Pours brown in color with a small bubbly
head. Sweetish dark bready notes, juniper and bit of earthy forrest
in aroma. Juniper, light woodyness, sweet dark ripe fruityness in
taste. A lot of nice juniper kind of notes here. A buzzer indeed.
Sweet fudge (almost slightly burnt) kind of notes in aftertaste.

Maybe most famous finnish sahti. Fruity, well-bodied and very tasty! When its not botlled in some cases, when served from 5.0 l plastic can, it looses its carbonation after opening very soon.
