Sauna Beer is a light quality beer, which pleases and refreshes everyone who come from hot sauna. Sauna Beer, with its mild taste and its moderate alcohol consistency, is also great to drink during a hot summer day.

Bottle 4.8abv found at Rimi in Pärnu, Estonia. Little head, bright somewhat unclear golden body. Scents of sweet malts and faint candies. Tastes grains, syrup, sweet malts, perspiration. Sweet mild mouthfeel. Ends with cardboard, malts, bread, dough, sugar, water, and a sweaty man from a sauna. Ei, tänan. Enjoyed 2013-10-24 at RateMeet with Rune.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 20, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2015 50cl bottler. Wiru says its good for sauna, but, imho, it is is good for sauna only during summer. It used to have more decent aroma of juniper berries and birch, but not anymore. Since it is close to winter - grab any local porter instead of Saunaõlu for your sauna needs. Up: latest batch was rather weak. UP2: can. bbe 12.06.16 Watery and tasteless. Much worse than before.

ectuohy27 (1021) - ESTONIA - MAY 4, 2013
One of the best PLs in Estonia, this is a heavily malted, near-estery brew with a faint touch of spice and not much bitterness. Tastes more velvety and substantial than its ABV or style would indicate.

Pale clean golden color. Light malty aroma and taste, a bit papery, with slightly bitter hoppy finish. Nothing interesting, but if in sauna and with good company - drinkable and much better than that crap what most people drink in sauna.

butelka. Z powodu nazwy i dość biednego wyglądu butelki i etykiety myślałem, że to piwo służy do polewania kamieni w saunie i czerpaia procentów z pary hehe. Dopiero teraz przeczytałem, że ma służyć do ugaszenia pragnienia po wyjściu z sauny. I chyba coś w tym jest bo jestem po treningu i wchodzi mi nadzwyczaj dobrze choć pale lager to raczej nie moja bajka.

RexTalionis (3505) - FINLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear pale copper in color with a frothy white head. Sweet butter, hay and pale malts in aroma. Malts and dry cardboard in taste, but not in a bad way. Sweet buttery finish.

Marduk (6324) - Reval, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2012
0,5l bottle. Pale yellow color. Small white head, stays. Sweet malty aroma, very faint juniper? Sweet watery malts. Weak hops make ending light bitter.

suurjuust (2854) - ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2011
Pale gold, white head. Nose is grains, rubber, hints of sweetness and plastic. The taste is grainy, sour and rubbery, the aftertaste is just sour grains. Not good at all.

Kavu (4103) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 27, 2011
Pours pale golden with a high head. Weak aroma is malts. Flavor is mostly malts with a hint of... something. Not bad, if not that great either.
