2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Yes, small can. Only for can I bought it. Originaal isn´t my favorite. Metallic aroma, some corny notes also. Taste is light bitter more malty, quite watery.

Small can. This is just the export strength version of Saku Originaal. Pale golden, tall foamy head. Sweet malty and corny aroma. Taste is marginally less watery and a bit sweeter. Still low on hops. Slightly metallic finish.

Rather starchy aroma with some grainy malt and some butter. Flavour is rather starchy, bulky and sweetish with some cornish malt. Harsh and a bit sticky finish. Typical bulk lager.
