lusikka (5338) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 12, 2014
Draught @ Brygga, Tampere. Pours a hazy amber colour with a small head. Aroma of berries, banana, wet cardboard and caramel. Flavour of sweet malts, banana, yeast, some herbs, rubber and wood. Juniper is there a bit, with some cardboard-y notes too. Medium bodied and low carbonation. Thin. A weird sahti.

Gurthnar (1249) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle. Aroma mild, hard to discern anything. Hazy brown colour. Taste is strange herbal, with no carbonation whatsoever. Mostly sweet, spicy. Tasty Bonus points for originality. Minus points for lacking aroma.

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Dark amber body, no head. Aroma has bananas, yeast, fudge but not butter, bit dissolvent. Flavour is sahti like and that’s pretty nice thing. It is not easy. Bit body and sweetness missing in my opinion.

jookos (1523) - FINLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Tap@stone’s, hki. Amber brown muddy. Juniper, ripe banana esters, but also some slight crunchy amber maltyness in the aroma. Not nearly as banana-ized as sahti usually, and there’s also quite a bit of leafy herbals. Hops, I presume. Full body. Dry, a bit bitter. Some roastedness. Leafyness. Bisquity malts. Yeast. Feels like ale yeast. Weird flavoured dry barley wine. Not a total loss though. Has some sahti flavs there, deep somewhere.

TBone (11905) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 2, 2013
Tap @SOPP
Clear golden color, no head. Green apple, some green vegetables and maybe juniper in the nose. Medium-bodied. Very alcoholic, very dry juniper and wood flavor. Not very Sahti-like, more like "juniper ale".

Psytron (1154) - Turku, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Sold as Pyynikin Kataja 1.086 Sahti (9.5 % abv). Smell of yeast. Muddy colour, no head. Aroma of banana and yeast, alcohol. Very sweet. Zero carbon. Oily and heavy.

pyynikki (2) - FINLAND - SEP 3, 2013 does not count
Brewerys Kataja 1.086 is a bit different sahti. Colour is amber. In aroma and taste Juniper and hops are really presenting, rye is missing, No head, CO2 very tiny like it should, banana from bakers yeast, Brew is boiled more than some other sahtis. This way proteins are treated little bit differently. Kataja is very drinkable and less cloudy. Brewed for restaurants (longer shelf age). Good product to get into etnobeer culture.

Beerhammaren (893) - FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
.2l on tap @SOPP Pours clear amber with almost no head at all. Aroma is banana, malts, dried fruits, wheat and yeast. Flavor is matls, alcohol, hops/pine and banana. Not very sahtilike imo...
