Saimaa Vahva by Saimaan Juomatehdas

This beer has been widely disliked lately, even derided; I just wonder why. In my notion this brew fulfills quite well and beautifully the attributes set for a strong pale lager. Bix Beiderbecke surely would have fancied stuff like this in the good old roaring 1920's.

Saimaa Vahva is, when properly chilled as it certainly should be!, clean & lagery in it's aroma with nicely warming upshot. A very good one in it's class.

How about instilling one or two more degrees of ABV, aside from a pinch of hop aroma; furthermore, discard pasteurization, voila!

  1. I hate to make a remark like this, but it sounds, loud and clear, as if the recipe were the one of mine!
