The Taste of Manchester or Saku Manchester for short is a classic slightly sweet light red beer brewed following the finest traditions of English brewmasters. In England this beer is called ale and every respectable traditional English pub has this type of mild red beer at the top of their beer menu. Saku Manchester gets its English accent from light and caramel malt and aromatic hops that together make the beer sweeter and give it its red colour. Characteristic to English ale, Saku Manchester has a low carbon dioxide level.

Some many years ago I said that this beer has nothing to do with Manchester on Vienna whatsoever. Loads of my friends like it. I will stick to Tõmmu Hiid in this case. This brew is to weak for its class. I had it every years, and every year I was disappointed.

(Bottle, 0.5 l , 20131125) The beer poured amber and cler.Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had caramel, metallicness and berries. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, caramel, malts, metallicness, berries and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, acrid and bitter. A weird unpleasant brew with strange berriness.

Rune (8210) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2013
500ml bottle shared by djoeye. Pours a huge, bubbly, white head that laces well. Golden-brown coloured body. Mid-sweet malty smell, in the direction of caramel. Flavours of mild leafy hops together with sweet malts. Short, mostly, sweet ending. Medium minus bodied. Quite possible to drink, not exactly the taste of Manchester though. (Tromsø 10.11.2013).
