Gravity Cask. Hazy golden pour. Swee juniper aromas. FLavor is sweet, with spice and juniper. Man my day in finland had barely begone and these ratings have gone to short and sweet.

I wanted to drink local but sahtis turned out to be more elusive than I thought. This one was highly recommended so as soon as I found it on the tap handle I know which beer I was starting with. Fresh it is amazing and definitely vastly better than the bottled ones I have found stateside.

Aroma / Appearance - The caramel red base holds a fizzy bubbly head. It has a striking color almost like liquid red licorice. The handful of juniper, light chocolate, and wildness give the feel of drinking in a rural cabin far from the noise of a city during a long winter.

Flavor / Palate - Gooseberries, figs, and juniper awaken the palate. After the first wave it builds up until it becomes a bit like drinking licorice candy. The Hershey’s kiss finish is accented by fig newtons. If not for the price and other bottles to sample I would have drunk this all night.

Draught @ SOPP Turku 2013. Murky brownish orange liquid with no head as it goes with sahti’s. Aroma is sweet and has malts, yeast and bananas. Sweet flavour is also very bananic with malts and bun yeast.

laiti (6440) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 28, 2013
Draught @ One Pint Pub. Rated on 19.02.2010
Aroma is sweetish with banana esthers, some caramel and herbal notes. Flavour is sweet with banana esthers, bun yeast, rye and malty notes. Too much on the sweet side – and feels a bit straightforward too.

fantti (758) - FINLAND - JAN 14, 2013
Juotu "hanasta". Kaatuu lasiin ruskeana, sameana ja vaahdottomana. Hajussa on banaania, mallasta, alkoholisuutta, sitruunaa, greippiä ja ruohoa. Maku on marjainen, banaaninen, mansikkainen, hieman alkoholinen, katajainen ja ruohoinen. Suutuntuma on mieto ja alkoholi tuntuu. Kokonaisuutena suht maistuva ja mieto olut, mutta vähän pliisuksi tämä jää.

Tinco (581) - Linköping, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2012
From cask at One Pint Pub. Clear red liquid with almost no head just small white bubbles. Aroma is sweet berries, nice malty, juniper twigs maybe. Taste is sweet slightly tart berries, nice malty touch. Hard for me to describe since my tasting notes are from memory. Will have to revisit this one!

211212. From plastic jug, Nordic, Tampere. Pours hazy brown with almost no head. Aroma banana, what, bread yeast. Strong banana sweet taste. Not Bad.

sic1314 (4249) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2012
Well it was different, not sure I’d want to try it regularly, but pleasant enough. Dark and dim with no head, aroma of banana, flavour more of the same with caramel malt and quite a sweet/dry aftertaste.

Marstonlad (518) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2012
Hazy brown color, no head or carbonation. Doesn’t look like much but all the other elements in sahti more than compensate. Aroma is full of banana, juniper and spices. Taste is really sweet, spicy and fruity. Hops are compeletely missing, bananas and spices dominate. Taste is strong but palate is only medium bodied and very slick - deceptively easy to drink. Sahti is a unique beer style and Lammin Sahti represents it well. Either you love it or don’t - I do!
