COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saku Koduõlu on vanade meistrite eeskujul pruulitud mõnusalt tummine ja maitsekas hele õlu. Umbes sellise mekiga õlut pruulisid meie vaarisad kodutalus siis, kui õlletegu veel iga mehe enda auasi oli. Ja just sellisena mäletavad paljud oma vanaisa aetud koduõlle maitset nooruspõlvest suviselt heinateolt.
Koduõlle eripäraks on maitse – magusavõitu, hapukas ja väga vähese humalamekiga. Et üks õige koduõlu on alati filtreerimata, muudavad pärmiosakesed õlle välimuselt suduseks ning maitselt veelgi ümaramaks.
Koduõlle pruulimiseks kasutatakse pinnakäärituspärmi, mis on sarnane tavalisele „pagaripärmile“, mida kasutatakse kodus maltoosast koduõlle ajamisel. Muus osas on aga Saku Koduõlu pruulitud nii nagu seda aegade algusest saadik on tehtud – alustades linnaste meskimisest ja lõpetades kääritamisega.
Selle õige koduse maitse saavutamiseks on Saku Koduõlle pruulimiseks kasutatud nii odra- kui nisulinnaseid. Viimase lihvi Saku Koduõlle maitsele annab tumedate linnaste kasutamine, mis annavad koduõllele veidi tumedama värvitooni ja maitses õrnalt tuntava röstise noodi.

Probably the best commercial beer in Estonia, this nicely-spiced, estery, wheaty beer has a great aroma and compelling malt taste, marred only slightly by a soapy finish

Bottle at TimE’s place - Tokyo Tasting. Cloudy golden - white head. Wheaty, banana notes, sweetness, spicy notes, berrie notes, wild notes, light light salty notes. Hmmmm.

Reminds me of a weizen - Like many a Japanese Weizen, hitting all the right moves but with an oily, soapy presence. I liked it and this would be great in summer.

shoulderbroken (1724) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle, thanks Jinroh! Aroma is cream soda, sake kasu style, strawberries and cream. Taste is good, soft, bit sweet, fluffy body. Great summer drink. Really liked this and it gets me my 76 styles!

TimE (2978) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 22, 2014
Hazy amber, sweet apple pie, bananas, very yeasty nose. Light, lots of apples and banana cake. Very drinkable low or no hops, mildly sweet. Lingering apple pie finish.

MadRobin (1702) - Silver Spring, USA - MAR 13, 2014
Poured from 500 ml bottle in Pühajärve, Estonia. Hazy, medium amber with a thin pale khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of yeast, peaches, pears, raw sugar, cloves, juniper and herbs. Taste of sweet peaches, cloves, yeast, orange, herbs and pears. Medium body and low/medium carbonization. Very sweet and very fruity with some interesting spice or herbal flavors. I wanted to like this more than I did, but it is just too sweet. It seems more like a peach wine than a beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (6440) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 13, 2014
Bottle shared by Thompson @ weekly tasting. Pretty hazy yellow-orange color, small white head. Aroma is a bit weird and hard to describe. Taste is lightly sweet, slightly fruity. Hard to describe as well. Decent.

Weer uit fles in hostel, dus uiterlijk niet te beoordelen. Rand van flesje plopte met dop mee, dus toch uit glas. Sluumkoppe achtige look. Ook een beetje die smaak, maar minder lekker.

kustie (65) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Samea ulkomuoto, ei pitkää vaahtoa. Melko vähän hiilidioksidia. Maussa sitruunaa ja aavistus humalaa. Ei erityisen monipuolinen maku, vehnäisyys maistuu läpi.
