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.

JK54B (1539) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 17, 2008
A 0.5L bottle from local Alko. Some hoppiness in the nose. White fast disappearing head. Mild fruitiness in the taste (lemon). Also some taste of grass.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
I’d like to think the brewery was named after the mighty Kazushi Sakuraba. Doubtful though. Pale golden with an almost non-existent head. Thin, malty, slight bitterness and not for me.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Golden color with small head. Sweetish, malty and honeyish aroma with some herbal hops. Malty, honeyish and a bit papery flavor with low bitterness and hint of herbal hop flavor. The bottle is fresh but tastes a bit old already. No balance, needs more bitterness.

Sweetish malty, slightly hoppy aroma. Quite harsh, sweet and malty flavor. Thin mouthfeel.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUN 14, 2008
Bottle 0.5 l. Pale golden. Honeyish, malty, slightly alcoholic sweet and very subtly hoppy. Not that great. Kinda liked the export version better.

(Draught at St Urho’s on 2008-04-08) Pale golden and clear. Some hints of hops in nose. Some bitterness in taste. Simply boring.

SaintMatty (5991) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2008
Draught (St Patrick’s, Tallinn)- Golden in colour with a large head. The aroma is malty and grainy with a bit of lemon. Malty and mildly sweet taste which does not have much bitterness. It is rather bland but more refreshing and tasty than their flagship Saku Originaal! That does not say much though!

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - APR 21, 2008
Draught. Light golden yellow, quite thick white head. Nose is buttery malts and some hayish hops. Dry and malty flavor, diacety, light hayish hops and haybarn like dry bitterness on the finish. Medium bodied, quite smooth and low carbonation. Easily drinkable and dry, but more hops please!
