Lips Of Faith Sahti

22 oz bottle.
Pour is a very, very good looking golden orange body with a wispy, thinnish head. Not much retention, some lace.
Nose has plenty of sweet malts and perhaps a whiff of solvent like alcohol. Not very well defined as far as I could make out.
Tastes are built around that of a malty, relatively high gravity lager with some lemongrass notes. There is little or no juniper character, and the beer reminds me a bit of a watery Maibock. It really doesn’t have a lot of body but in one way that makes it more drinkable. The alcohol seems to build over the length of the beer, or at least the alcohol TASTE, builds. There is a little bitterness in the far back end but it is pretty minute.
The bottle mentions the lemon peel, but it also says the beer is “hazy” which under absolutely NO circumstances is it.
Interesting beer that is drinkable, pretty light and a beer that appeals to my malty side and the fact I like a beer with good clarity and color.
