Saku Kuld – a modern classic, the absolute elite of Estonian beers, a combination of Saku’s hundreds-of-years-old brewing traditions, and the newest technology. With a rich taste, foam, and aroma, a delicate balance of freshness and mildness characterizes the taste of Saku Kuld. The freshness comes from Nordic oat malt and velvety smoothness is added to the refined bouquet by Hallertau hops. In addition, Saku Kuld is characterized by a clear colour and thick firm foam. Saku Kuld is sold in unique bottles with a relief of the Saku arms.

Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2011
Nothing wrong with this beer and nothing special about it either. Just the perfect exemple of an ordinary pale lager.

esp0r (2459) - NORWAY - JUL 11, 2011
Bottle enjoyed at home
Golden clear, big big white head. Smells of straws and dust. Taste is very sweet, thin body still. Not pleasent. Also grain and sourness. Feel is watry and the finish is not very hoppy or bitter

ClubGonzo (4902) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2011
Bottle. Standard pale lager looks to the eyes. Grainy hints of cooked veggies to the nose. Blandness and a bit of alcohol to the palate. Not a very good score to the Ratebeer. Forgettable.

bluevegie (3069) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 9, 2011
Tried as a sample, this one had a bit more body going for than the original, some melon notes in the taste but not much else.

rauchbier (3700) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2011
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Brigg. Faintly hazy gold, thin but lasting white head and moderate condition. Vaguely fruity esters initialy in the nose with trace pineapple notes, soft and slightly chalky in the mouth with a gentle hop bitterness and a trace of sweet fruity maltiness, short finish with some sweetness and a touch more chalkiness.

DruncanVeasey (7881) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Draught, Hell Hunt, Tallinn. Pale dusty yellow with a slim head and determined lacing. Sour, rubbery aroma. Taste has suggestions of herbal hop, metal (coins), rubber glove, Jacob’s cream crackers. Just not mad about this style of sourish, sulphurous, quite probably adjunct-laden Baltic lager.

anders37 (20473) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small longlasting white head. Has a fruity grainy and slightly metallic aroma. Sweetish fruity grainy flavor. Has a sweetish fruity grainy finish with some weak hints of bitterness in the aftertaste.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2011 Drack denna första gången på flaska köpt på Systembolaget och gav ölen ett rätt lågt betyg. Drack den på plats i Tallinn i helgen och upptäckte att den förtjänar ett högre betyg: Säd i doften. Koriander och citrus i smaken, som är disktinkt och ovanligt kraftfull för att vara en lager-öl. Intre det minsta dum faktiskt.
