Less would be enough. With its rich copper colour Tosi Vahva (Special Strength) Karhu is generously malted and flavoured with the best hops. It is a balanced, special strength and full-bodied beer.

There is a 8.8 % version of this, which is sold in the Tax Free shops on the cruiseships from/to Finland. Ratings should, however, be put under this entry.

An orange beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sweet malty with some metallic notes from the alcohol, and so is the flavor too, with slight notes of peach.
