COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Suomenlinnan Panimon punertava lager-olut (4,7 til-%) on tehty kolmesta viljasta, rukiista (Secale), vehnästä (Triticum) ja ohrasta (Hordeum), joiden alkukirjaimista on myös saanut nimensä – Seth. Seth on maltainen, vahvarunkoinen lager, jonka rukiinen runko piristyy vehnällä ja taittuu pitkällä, mutta miedolla humalan puraisulla. Oluen nimi Seth linkittyy tiiviisti myös Suomenlinnan historiaan. Gabriel von Seth (1690-1774) oli paitsi linnoituksen rakentajan Ehrensvärdin hyvä ystävä, myös tunnettu vaikuttaja ja herkkusuu. Bastion Seth seisoo edelleenkin osana Suomenlinnan linnoitusta keskellä vehreää Komendantin yrttitarhaa.

Suomenlinna Brewery’s reddish lager (4.7% vol) is made of three grains, rye (Secale), wheat (Triticum) and barley (Hordeum), which initials are also in the name of this beer. Seth is a malty, strong-bodied lager, which ryeish body is refreshed with wheat and a mild bite of hops. The name of the beer is also closely linked with the history of Suomenlinna. Gabriel von Seth (1690-1774) was not only the fortress builder Ehrensvärd’s a good friend, also known as a contributor and gourmet. Bastion Seth still stands as part of Suomenlinna seafortress in the middle of a verdant herb garden.

visionthing (5470) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 10, 2016
50cl bottle on the ferry from Vallesaari to Helsinki. Pours deep golden with a decent, white head. Mild malty aroma with some herbal hops and hints of fruits. Moderate sweet with mild flavours, but a fairly pleasant bitterness. Quite enjoyable.

Hieman punertavankuparinen kirkas olut paksuhkolla, jonkin verran pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu hieman makean maltainen, voittaa peruslagereiden tuoksun selvästi. Olut on helposti juotava, mutta silti siinä on sitä jotain. Maku on siis riittävän monivivahteinen sisältäen rukiista maltaisuutta, mutta myös aavistuksen hedelmäisyyttä. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja lievä humalan puraisu lopussa kruunaa hienon kokonaisuuden. Voisihan tämä aavistuksen verran vahvempi olla rungoltaan, mutta maitokauppatuotteeksi varsin mainio.

Ihan hauska hapokas keskitäyteläinen olut. Makua mukavasti, mutta helposti unohtuu. Sais olla paksumpi.

panzerwolf (353) - FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
A mild taste with notes of hay, caramel and herbs. Not much bitterness, it is very brief. Overall a nice lager, but the mildness of the taste makes it kind of easy to forget, as well. Still, enjoyable!

Unde (1117) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Golden color, smallish head and some lacing. Aroma has barley malt, some sweet caramel and hay. Taste is malty and has mainly barley in it. Body is light to medium and carbonation is quite high. OK lager.

nihtila (3754) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 26, 2015
28.9.2014. Clear pale amber colour. Aroma of grain, malts and butter, herbs. Tastes malty, slight sweetness, grass, some hops, caramel. Its malty lager and ok I guess but these slightly sweet butter lagers are not for me..

2.9
RexTalionis (3775) - FINLAND - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Clear copper, small whitish head. Nice grainy notes on the nose. Grainy notes in taste. Mild. A bit different aroma and taste here, mostly from the rye I presume, didn’t get much wheaty notes here. Bready and slightly bitter finish.
