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.

Wow, this tastes much like a cider, but better of course. [0,5 l can, milk shop, Finland]

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.

berkshirejohn (4442) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2007
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.

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 8, 2007
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!

yngwie (13345) - 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

Dedollewaitor (13802) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 16, 2011
Bottle @ Ulfborg Easter Tasting, 2011. Pours cloudy yellow with a small off white head. Sweet. Wet grains . . hayish. Thin palate . . Short end.

djoeye (1380) - 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.
