Aidon saunan alkuperää saa toki arvailla, mutta suomalainen tietää. Saunahan ei ole vain paikka. Se on annos syvää rauhaa, ikuisuutta ja ihmisen kokoisia ajatuksia. Kiireestä vapaa vyöhyke maailman kauneimmassa maisemassa. Se on maailman paras suomalainen sauna. Onkin selvää, että pyhään toimitukseen vaaditaan aidosti suomalainen, sopivasti aromikas ja erittäin raikas saunaolut. Saunojilta saunojille, itsenäitseltä Olvilta.

Extremely pale yellow, thin white head. Very little aroma to speak of, hints of sweetish malts. Flavor is, well, light. Kinda summery feel after the beer has gone. No bitterness or anything, just easy to drink. Works well for what it’s meant for.

Psytron (1919) - Turku, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
Basic bulk Olvi with a bit more wannabe and a bit less character than the superboring bulk Olvi.

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2011
560ml bottle from Alko Hetta. As a big fan of sauna, banya and hammam I had high expectations, that weren’t met. Clear yellow body. Foamy head that left some lace-work. Smelt like sauna: birch and alder, with a hint of sweat. Unfortunately, the sweat is the most protruding flavour: sweaty cheese, with some hops and pineapple. Swampy! Well, it reminds of a sauna, but not in a really pleasant way. No, I prefer to drink Wiru Kadakaõlu in the sauna and banya... (Sampled at XIII Session, Tromsø 10. March 2011)

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2011
Can, courtesy of saxo. A clear, pale golden beer with a small, dense, white head. The aroma has pale malts and fruits, some wet cardboard in the back. Flavorwise it’s equally boring, grainy and fruity, luckily with some bitterness. Hard carbonation, medium body. Yet another macro lager that fails to impress. Big time. 110416
