2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From a large plastic canister at Bryggeri Helsinki. Cloudy to brown without much of a head. Mild spicy aroma with juniper and hints of caramel. Quite strange brew. Almost no carbonation. Medium sweet with some acidity and a dry and spicy finish. Strange, certainly not a favourite, but quite nice juniper flavour. (2013-08-17)

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Helsinki Brewery. 8% or so, apparently filtered through juniper branches & traditionally drunk from a mug made of juniper to highlight the flavor! A muddy opaque honey brown pour, flat. Great spice ara, molasses, cinnamon & caramel. Boozy! Interesting flavor, sweet, some woodsiness, caramel like those Halloween candies I used to get. Nice mouthfeel, smooth. I’d like to try it with ice cream. Sahti is a must try when un Finland.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, dark amber color. Minimal head, low carbonation. Sweetish aroma with some juniper. Taste is slightly more bitter than aroma but with malty touch. Also some phenolic flavors. Alcohol is clearly distinguishable. A dryish finish with a metallic flavor. This is one of those beers which are definitely worth of tasting, but one glass might be enough. (Draugh at the craft beer festival in Helsinki).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Opaque cloudy copper orange beer with a huge creamy permanent head. Aroma and taste are mostly banana and sugary sweetness. The sweetness is kind of overwhelming towards the end of the glass and also a floury yeastiness enters at that point. Medium thickness and finish.

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.
