Gold coloured body with big white head. Light malt and hops in aroma. Very smooth easy drinking taste. Mainly malt and hops in taste with a semi-bitter finish.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Don’t drink much for numbers anymore, but this one was for a whole new country, Estonia. Well, it was indeed Estonian Budweiser and it was pretty poor in aroma and flavor: adjuncts, corn, metallic oxidation, more corn and grains. Mouthfeel was fully carbonated, but otherwise it drank like, well, nevermind. I’m always game for a new country, but I didn’t beat up my liver finishing this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 The production date on my bottle says it was made only two weeks ago. For an import to be that fresh from the LCBO is insane! Pours the nice gold colour with a large, frothy white head. Aroma: Some grassy hops on top of some grainy malts, not much going on, but nothing offensive. Taste: Not half as bad as the low rating will make you think. Nice malty sweetness up front, a tad grainy which I love in my lagers, which leaves a sort of wet feeling on the tongue, followed by some hop presence in the finish, followed by just a touch of skunk. I can’t believe my luck that I got a fresh sample, so I guess this is pretty much as good as this beer can be. And it’s pretty decent. It’s nothing spectacular, so give it a freaking break people, it’s just a lager, nothing more. I’m sure there’s better from Estonia, but this does seem to be getting a rough ride here. EDIT The new canned version is actually really, really good, a big improvement. Very soft, like a Helles, with a perfect blend of pale malts and hops, with a great floral aroma.

Bottle. Very unremarkable. Typical eurolager. Smooth and drinkable but lacking much in flavor or aroma.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Popular Estonian beer. Produced for "everybody" without flavor and with rich carbonation. So uninteresting. Typical eurolager.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
very light pale yellow. smal white head. aroma is grainy, and sweet corn. Flavour is that sickly sweet corny, vegetable you get from a bad lager. In the finish there is some slight malt, and a decent crsipness to it. pretty dismal overall.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Quite extraordinary bad pale lager. Heavely unbalanced with loads of sweetish boiled vegetables in both taste and aroma. Add a stinging alcoholic sensation and you have Saku Originaal, probably not the best beer in the world.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light, thin and watery. Uninteresting lager, while not having a directly bad taste. A little grainy finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Country-whoring Estonia. 500ml bottle. Stinky sweet corn and ashtray nose. Wet and sticky and a little crisp up front, more dusty and sweaty corn and fuesal alcohol over the middle and into the finish. Blah.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught in Estonia. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is yeasty and dry and the flavour is wheaty, dry, lightly yeasty and watery. Overall a reasonable refreshing beer.
