estpiwo (1310) - ESTONIA - AUG 29, 2007
Popular Estonian beer. Produced for "everybody" without flavor and with rich carbonation. So uninteresting. Typical eurolager.

robinvboyer (3362) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
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.

jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 12, 2007
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.

KnutAlbert (6312) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2007
Light, thin and watery. Uninteresting lager, while not having a directly bad taste. A little grainy finish.

3fourths (8391) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 28, 2007
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.

RichardGretton (4365) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2007
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.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Draught in Estonia. Not much that differintiates the "Originaal" from the Saku Kuld except that the Kuld is a bit more refreshing because of a slight fruit taste. Go with the Kuld.

berkshirejohn (4905) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2007
50cl can. Looks like the average Euro-lager - straw colour, white head; smells like the average Euro-lager - industirally processed malt; tastes slightly better than the average Euro-lager, quite well-bodied, with corn-syrup sweetness and a balancing hoppy finish. Overall, we can now welcome Estonia to Euro-averageness.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle. Reminds me why I stopped buying imported lagers (well, lagers in general, but I especially dislike paying import prices for them). Pale golden color. Aroma is dominated by corn. The finish is when the hops start to come through with a slight bitterness.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2007
12oz Bottle: Extremely thin and pale pour, topped by a loose white film. Sweet corn aroma. Overall this is a sweet Pale Lager. Papery pale malt, lots of sweet corn, without any bitterness. Maybe a subtle grass note in the finish. Stuff needs more bitterness, simple and one-dimensional.
