500ml can kindly shared by djoeye. Airy white head to a yellow coloured body. Grainy malts on the nose. Discreet taste profile of sweet lemon, apples and grain. Fruity endnotes. Lively carbonated. Rather diluted in the mouth. About drinkable (Tromsø 18.03.2014)

Soapy big head. Pale clear baltic golden beer. Scents of baltic malts. Tastes bread and pale malts, lacks hops - which I think a pilsener must have. Slightly dry. Boring finish in a bread. 50cl can 4.2%, b@Rimi Pärnu EE, enjoyed@RateMeet@Rune’s 18mar2014.

Canned (thanks tbone!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is bready malts, some slight herbal and grassy notes. Flavour is rather similar. In fact the beer is quite similar to the Saku Originaal, just a bit more watery.

I can’t see why this is called pilsener. Close to water, but still has same unpleasant flavors.

Very clear golden beer with a brief white head. Malty and sweet aroma, pretty straight forward lager aroma. Umm... how does this differ from the normal Saku, except for actually having LESS hops than the pale lager?! Wow, what a disappointment! THIS IS NOT A PILSNER!

visionthing (2402) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 22, 2013
50cl can from Rimi Hypermarked in Tallinn. Pours clear, very pale golden with a small, white head. Mild and weak malty aroma with cooked vegetables, grass and some slightly unpleasant aromas. Sweet, grainy and watery without much to offer. Some bitterness in the finish, but not much. Reminds me a bit of South-East Asian lager so I guess it would be better on a very hot day (or in a sauna). Slightly unpleasant.

Over the years, it just got worse and worse. I remember when it was almost as hoppy as Saku Hele. Now it is so diluted, that you can not taste anything but water. A Le Coq Pilsner is way better. Side by side comparison is fun: 9/10 choses A Le Coq.

tmrmwel (757) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 2, 2013
Bottle. Pours light yellow, with a small creamy head. Aroma is sour with lemon, hay and diacetyl. Flavour is bitter with sour lemon, but finishes of with an off taste of caramel and butter. Awful stuff.

Bottle. Pours pale yellow with small white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is mixture of grassy hops and pale malt, similar to other pale lagers of Saku. Not too strong and interesting flavour, largely follows aroma. Watery mouthfeel, well carbonated. Nothing special.

Bottle. Pale golden colour with a white head. Aroma is fruit, berries, malt. Flavour is fruit, berries, malt. Boring beer.
