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.

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.

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.

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.

larsga (7074) - 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.)

Bottle. Golden body, tall head. Watery, but otherwise very average. The main reason this beer is watery, is that by name it’s a "sauna beer". This means it’s supposed to be watery because the main function of this beer is to be a thirst quencher in a hot sauna. So I guess it’s pretty good at what it’s made for.

Marduk (5332) - 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.

Rated su 24.01.2016.

can. Golden clear. Weak malty, smooth yeasty nose. Light bodied, weak malt pudding, kinda yeast-startery bland doughy flavour. A pretty normal pale lager. Low bitter, low flavour. Tastes surprisingly good now though (after a bunch of sauna & snow rolling :)

Kavu (3676) - 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.
