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.

Well it's not a bad lager, I think it's not bad for what it is, crisp in both look and taste.

Zarkam (526) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 3, 2013
500ml bottle from Alko Pasaati, Kotka, clear gold colour, large frothy mostly lasting white head, good lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and a hint of light bread, light to moderate herbal hops. Flavor is initially slightly sweet and acidic turning into a light bitter finish with a moderately astringent feel, lively carbonation, medium body, oily texture. Otherwise insignificant lager with a better than average body and far from the worse ones.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2013
Flaske, 50 cl. Let lys gylden med hvidt skum. Dufter af korn og mæsk - smager lige sådan. Sødt, klistret og helt uden karakter eller antydning af bitterhed. En totalt forglemmelig øl. Drukket den 22.4.12.

Recension från baklogg. Flaska köpt på SB. Ljusgul vätska med vitt skum. Brödig doft. Torr krispig beska. Kort eftersmak.

Senka (857) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 5, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2015 Update: Canned on 15/04/15. Clean, smooth pale lager. When served at 7degC - not pretentious, not musky or skunky. Just simple and refreshing. 5,2ABV suits it fine. For historical reasons: Initial Rating Date: 10/5/2013 Was: 1/1/1/1/1/ This is unbelievable. This brew is supposed to be one of the best Saku lagers. And it was. Purchased a can from Selver, that was produced on 27 September, 2013 - price was 0.75EUR. That explains a lot - beer brewed for seasonal sales campaign - is in 100% of the cases is rubbish. P.S: Previous similar "sale" beer case was with Puls Pilsner - it was cloudy and sour.

Tide (2086) - Espoo, FINLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Can from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, malts, grass, a bit of toast and cardboard. Bitter finish with citrus and cardboard. Pretty basic bulk pale lager.

jookos (3219) - FINLAND - JUL 6, 2013
can. pale, tastewise what you’d expect from a bulk lager. in a very self-deceptive way I’ve always thought that this beer is a bit better than its bland siblings. but that’s been fresh from tap. in a can, pretty much as the others.

Dewnans (12) - LAOS - JUL 4, 2013
I tasted this at a couple of locations in Tallinn. In summary, I was disappointed. It was a rather bland beer served too cold. It poured with a reasonable lacy head, but the taste was indistinct and forgettable.

Yves (2500) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2013
Clear blond coloured beer with small white head and no carbonation. Herby hopped aroma. Medium sparkling palate. Finish is slight bitter ending rather dry.
