Ölbeat 222: Sonnisaari Pils

Brewery: Sonnisaari
Country: Finland
Style: Pilsener
Abv: 4,7 %
What about the beer?
Colour is straw yellow with a medium-sized white head. Aroma has bitter malts, sour citrus and an oily scent. Taste begins with sour-bitter malty bite. Bready bitter malts with some crisp citrus on the side take over. Near the finish malty-fruity bitterness grows stronger. Aftertaste has malty dryness and citrus bitterness.

Crisp and tasty hoppy Pils from Oulu. With only Magnum and Hallertau hops they got this tasty brew. Sounds way too simple, so the result comes from excellence in brewing. Great work, Sonnisaari, waiting for the next one.


Looking for a song with some crisp bitterness, found George Harrison's voice. Being not so much of a fan of the Beatles, I've always liked the edge in Harrison's vocals compared to the clean boyish sounds of Lennon-McCartney. Maybe it's in my head but at least here's the song with a simple question.

From the 1970 album All Things Must Pass, the song was written by George Harrison.
