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.

yngwie (16510) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 16, 2011
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

TBone (16165) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 21, 2007
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.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 22, 2008
500ml can (K Market)
Very pale, scummy head. Sweet fruity aroma. Pale lager fingerprint, but this has at least a noticeable sweet malty body a curious almondy and cherry twist to the taste. Some metallic grassy hops too. It’s those damn pellets - they’re as far away from ’velvety’ as you can get. Pushed in 2 directions here - it’s much bigger than the weak piss, but has several drawbacks too.
