1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Itís a clear, pale golden beer topped by a minimal sized white head. Grainy pale malts with hints of wet cardboard. Fruity and lightly grassy. Itís quite thin on the palate, with soft carbonation. Grass, fruityness, pale malts and a faint bitterness in the flavor. Hints of wet cardboard. Not much of interest going on here, but itís sort of drinkable. 121102

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bad sweet-metallic odour with hints of old yeast. Tastes better, though. Caramel and malt, maybe a bit to sweet, but plain. Head quickly disappearing, but a nice golden colour.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Metallic aroma, good head and clear appearance only quality factors, itís all downhill from there for this "elite" beer thatís little more than a hoppier, crispier version of the other near-indistinguishable PLs and Pilsners Iíve had from Saku. Other than the Porter, which is worth returning to, and the Tume, which is at least distinctive, the Kuld and its brewerymates can be ignored safely
