Saku had brewed strong beers for decades. In 2004 brewmasters completed old formulas and nowadays Taurus is one of the most popular bock typed beer in Estonia. Saku brews it of its own yeast, water, and selected malt and hops to gain high foam and excellent aroma.

Butelka 0,5. Złotawy kolor bez piany. Aromat wyłącznie alkoholowy, nic poza tym. W smaku też czuć ciężar procentów lecz w sposób niezbyt przyjemny, więc trochę dziwię się widząc wpisy, iż "alkoholu nie czuć" :D. Nie mój styl, nie mój smak, ale mimo wszystko to słabe piwo.

Not my style. Ale jak na styl ktorego nie znosze to moge ocenic to piwo na srednie, nie bylo az tak zle jak przypuszczalem i w porownaniu do werji Orginal jest sporo lepsze. Piana fajna sniezna, sredniej wielkosci. kolor jasny przejrzysty. Alkoholu na szczescie sie nie wyczuwalo, slodowy glownie smak. Brak jakiejkolwiek trwalej koncowki

Eipä ole aikoihin tarvinnut kaataa osaa oluesta viemäriin, mutta tätä ei pullollista pystynyt juomaan. Vaalean kullankeltainen olut hyvin niukalla valkoisella vaahdolla. Maltainen ja hedelmäinen tuoksu; maku maltainen ja hyvin hapokas, ei juuri muuta. Alkoholinen. Ei toimi.

Idiosynkrasie (6539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2016
500ml bottle. Clear, yellow-ish pale golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Sweet-ish, grainy, strawy aroma. Taste is slightly dry hoppy, slightly sweet bready, grainy, malty, a strawy touch; watery passages. Boring.

Butelka 0,5l w domu. Kolor jasnozłoty, klarowny, piany brak. Aromat słodowy, smak słodki, piwo trochę bez wyrazu. Pozytyw, nie czuć alkoholu.

Calisky (2500) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 12, 2015
Couleur dorée, trčs légčre mousse. Nez leger sucré glucose. Gout de vieux papier, poussičre de houblon, et leger glucose. Pas horrible au gout comme une strong bon marché mais vraiment faible en aromes et intensité....
