COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Can, courtesy of saxo. Clear, golden body and a small, white head. Cellary nose with a sourish touch, quite malty and fruity. The flavor is much better, but I can’t say I agree with the commercial description stating it’s the crème de la crème of beers. Pale malts, fruityness and some bitterness. The bitterness is mostly evident in the end. Medium body with a pleasant carbonation. A decent beer, nothing more, especially the aroma pulls the score down. 110416

Can from Tbone, thanks! Blonde. Grainy aroma and flavor with hints of glue and apple. Almost medium bodied. Drinkable but boring.
