UPDATED: MAY 15, 2015
Draught (7%) @ St. Urhon Sahtipäivät 2014
Quite light aroma with just some yeasty tones and banana esthers. Flavour is odd with some berries and yeasty tones. Finishes with weird hay tones and gooseberry bush leaves. A bit straightforward and odd.
Draught @ St. Urhon Sahtipäivät 2015
Magnum hopped version
Aroma is quite nothing with hayish tones and mild banana notes. Flavour has juniper, hayish tones, flour and some toffee. A bit messy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at St. Urho’s. Deep hazy reddy brown with amazingly nice small creamy head. Nose has banana, juniper, a bit of syrup, berries. Flavor is intensely sweet, bananalike, sweet again with very subtle smokiness, nuts, marzipan, berries.. pretty complex, but very intense in a juice concentrate way. Amazingly thick and even soupy mouthfeel with very very smooth creamy carb. Palate is somewhere between a stout and a tomato soup really, not sure if it’s good to be this thick.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Pours light brown in color with small bubbly head. Wood, campfire and old plastic in aroma. Feels quite dry. A bit of wood and some dry mouthpuckering notes in taste. This one actually feels quite harsh, with the wooden dryness being quite evident in finish. Wood, wood and wood. I wonder if this is at all the same as the previous years versions.
