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.

50 cl can from a Finnish grocery store. Rather malty beer, but it is nothing above the ordinary. Some hops add al little, but there is not enough dryness to make up for the malty sugar. No need for all the colourful boasts on the can!

This was actually quite a nice surprise. A tad sweet, malty and full. Definately packs a lot more taste than a basic pale lager from this region.

50cl can. Golden colour with a retentive white head; honey aroma; sweet, honeyed taste; clean refreshing slightly bitter finish. Much, much better than Saku Originaal.

Can (BB 09/2007)
Golden color with lively carbonation, decent white head. Sweetish corn-aroma, even a bit honeyish and lemony. Starts with soft palate, later some harsh notes. Overall quite sweet with honey-like flavors. Mildly malty aftertaste. Clean, sweetish and boring lager, slightly more interesting than the Saku Original.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2008 (Canned) Clear, paleish golden with a medium, foamy head. Clean aroma of sweetish, lemony-corny malt with hints of honey. Not metallic like the regular Kuld. Sweetish, mildly honeyish-malty flavor with lemon-grassy notes and medium bitterness. Light to medium-bodied with a bit sharp carbonation - still easy to drink, as it’s not very acidic. In its class, Kuld is a quite successful attempt to combine the sweet-honeyish Eastern European lagers with the clean and tasteless ones of the Nordic countries. I believe this could gain popularity among the masses.

Canned. Golden colour, mediumsized white foamy head, which lasts for quite some time. Lacing. Aroma is skunky hops, malts and some metallic hints. Flavour is sweet malts along with biting hops. Some very erathy and grassy notes in aftertaste. Crisp carbonation.
