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.

Brandman (2316) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2010
Golden body, white head (surprise, surprise!). Aroma has some sugar and malts, plastic too. Metallic taste, maybe some citrus notes. Easy to drink, but not a treat.

Golden color, small white head, lace. Nose starts rubbery then fresh grassyness and birchwood. Light maize too. Sweet corn flavor, grassy hoppyness. Odd plastic aftertaste.

rosenbergh (8288) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 5, 2009
500 ml bottle. From Pärnu, Estonia.
Clear golden colour with small white head. Aroma is almost like some hops and maltiness but not quite like. Not bad though but not very beer-like. Some soda-likeness. Rather drinkable but not something I would look for. Maybe this should be consumed in sauna.

oh6gdx (22101) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2009
Bottled (thanks SaintMatty!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is cereals, melted rubber, some grains and harshly sweet. Flavour is mild malts, some hay as well as rubbery notes.

larsga (6620) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2009
Medium white head. Paleish yellow body. Grassy malty aroma. Dryish malty sodaish taste with corn and hop notes. Mid-bodied. Dry peas and grass aftertaste with corn notes. It’s not really bad, but not good, either. (0.5l bottle, unreadable, Tallinn.)

500ml bottle - gift from SaintMatty - thanks!
Pale gold. Well, there’s everything in this one! For a start there’s toys - tonka trucks and freshly opened packs of lego. But there’s more - it’s got potatoes too! Not just freshly sliced ones, but also lightly fried thick (English style) ones. The Sauna Gods were not too offended by a spashed offering of this upon their sacred stones, and the assembled worshippers thanked them for the toasty vapours they returned. What more can you ask for? (Just don’t mention beer.)

Bottle. Golden color. malty and watery. Specific wiru taste disappeared. Why? Beer without soul?
