Saku Kuld - the most brilliant brew of Estonia's oldest brewery, the crème de la crème of beers. A masterpiece combining the brewing traditions of two centuries with the newest technology. It's rich bouquet combines the robustness of Nordic barley malt and the velvety taste of aroma hop from sunny Hallertau.

From the archives. Found a picture and a rating from Finland trip. As good as KOFF III. Watery thirst quencher.

djoeye (3195) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2013
50 cl alu-can, dark blue with golden parts. Bought in Finland, enjoyed in Norway. Scents of red and yellow apples, and hops, some pale malts. Pours a standard to lively bubbled head over a clear golden body. Tastes balanced between the malt and hops, and some hints of medicine, bread, grains. Mouthfeel round and gentle, and there is a hint of metallic meadworth. But aftertaste boring as a hospital corridor decorated with cardboard. Though, it is a decent quality lager overall.

Marduk (6004) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 8, 2012
0,5l can. Lighter version of Saku Kuld. Actually it makes it somewhat smoother to drink. But still nothing special.
