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.

RexTalionis (2356) - 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.

larsga (6140) - 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 (2582) - Tallinn, 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.

Kavu (2149) - 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.

agent_persik (368) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2013
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.
