On Saaremaa rye has long been one of the main crops. So we’ve made a beer that tastes like a true island brew should- of bread. This unfiltered amber beer is light on the palette and best enjoyed at 8-10C.

Slightly hazy brown coloured beer with tiny beige head. Aroma is bread, rye. Taste is sour bread and mild malty. Light body, good refreshing beer.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2016
My Bottom Line:
Plentiful bread flavors, from both cereals and yeast, float within this rough brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the murky dark beige.
-Flavor profile lacks structure and clarity.
-Drinkability is rather low.
-This, in a way, is reminiscent of some Seto Olu. But not the best examples, of course.
-Fruity edges are observed here and there.

330 ml bottle. #Lauritsapäev 15-IV. BB 15/06/2016. (Kuressaare Kuursaal) Kuressaare, Estonia.
Murky mid-brown color with a tiny off-white head. Bread and mild sourness in the aroma. Bread, yeast, mild hops, cardboard and mild sourness in the flavor.

Lodgewick (63) - Finland, Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 25, 2015
Tap in Ku-Kuu, Saaremaa. Copper brown hazy ale with small white head. Aroma is sweet bread and yeast. Taste is bready malt and mild. Under medium palate. Like home brewed ’kotikalja’.

Pendipäev 15. Hazy brown, almost no head. Earthy-farm aroma. Tastes very sour with some bread notes. Carbonation goes down fast and after that feels flat. Quite disappointing to be honest, because I remember the first batch of Rukkiõlu was pretty ok or at least drinkable.

@ De Tolly. Aroma light, feels some apples and soured milk. Foam white but virtually none. Beer seems muddy brown. Taste is sour. Reminds me homemade beer. Carbonation: lively.
