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

Kauge (755) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2015
BB 02.2016. Been meaning to try it for a while now. Pours all foam at first, it’s a bubbly, fluffy, off-white, moderately fast receding head. The body itself appears as murky translucent orange. The nose is kinda Belgian with nostril-burning esters and the not surprising bubblegum and banana notes. Strange, at points I also get a hint of dried and salted fish (vobla). Tastes really sweet, without anything to back it up - the watery palate is of no help. Malty, yeasty, watery sourish, and finishes herbal bitter. The mouthfeel is rather soft (it’s an unfiltered Saku!) and the finish kinda dry. Carbonation rather active. Best when very cool. Definitely among the best by Saku, but still weak. Would perhaps pass as an acceptable low-ABV Belgian Ale.

Aroma is strongly wild strawberries. How can one beer have such strong strawberryish scent? Really gratifying... Appearance is amber, hazy, minimal head. Taste is sweet and fruity. Hints of orange, pears, juniper and various herbs. Has a medium body and slightly creamy texture. Really soft carbonation and pleasant finish. Although a mass product, it feels exactly like it was brewed at home. Really nice.
