COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

olsvammel (4942) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2009
500 ml bottle. It poured a clear golden liquid with a small foam that left a little lacing. The smell was slightly sweet and had hints of malt and bread. The taste was fizzy with some malt and a low bitterness. It lacks allot of the bad tastes I relate to lager, but it’s a bit weak in taste and smell to reach a higher scroe. Pretty decent lager though.

Rune (10005) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2009
500ml bottle from Alko in Hætta. Thanks to Elisabeth. Noisy pour that left a pale yellow body with a filmy layer. Grass-fruity to the nose. Citric hints in flavour with dry malts beneath and turning rather sweet in the ending. Fizzy and foamy in the mouth. Lively carbonated (shared at a drinking session in Tårnrommet, Tromsø 29.04.2009).

UPDATED: MAR 12, 2015 Bottl. Pale yellow beer with a small white head. Aroma is malty with notes of hay, grain, bread, grass and banana. Flavor is sweet and slightly sticky with hints of grain, bread and metallic hops. Balanced and much better than I expected.
