djoeye (1230) - Tromsř, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2013
Poured from 50cl can; bright medium golden, very clear body, under the normal head which vanishes without traces I can see. Scents of sulphuric eggs. Tastes well balanced bitterness, hops, grain, some pale malts. Much carbonation at start, much more moderate after some minutes. Intermediate taste where bread dominates. Watery, a bit, but not annoying. Aftertaste of faint hops. Saku Originaal goes wery well along with spicy dinners.

cmonster (966) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottled. Pours crystal clear pale gold with a fluffy medium sized white head. Persistent head, solid lacing. Good start. Medium sweet corn aroma and not much else, but it’s pleasant enough. Flavor matches the nose with a thin-sticky texture, light-med body and a mild hop and creamy malt finish. Solid drinker.
