3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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!

Cask at One Pint Pub, darker iced tea color, lots of flavor, juniper, somthing like cinnamon that I’m sure that’s not cinnamon. Orange zest. Very flavorful and quite good

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served with a large bubble, sudsy head the color of the brew which was a hazy dark amber. Aroma was spice, licorice, malt. Flavor is similar but butterscotch is present also. Plus a bit of tang. Body and carbonation are true to style. Finish is like flavor and quite long. Seems to be what a sahti is all about except for the butterscotch which I’m not a huge fan of.

A bit of sweetness, ’doughy’, bananas (overripe ones) on the nose. Weizen-style easters on the palate. Rye? Thick and soft, Feels very nurishing, like drinking whole milk.
