djoeye (5090) - Tromsø, - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle 0,5L 5,2% from Pärnu, Rimi, Estonia. Embossed clear bottle, beautiful, but a beer should have at least a green bottle, or brown for dark beer. (My subjective opinion). --- . Scents of spicy malts, black crowberry heather, hops. Pours a short-lived offwhite head on a golden bubbling body. Though the last millimetres of head lasts for quite a while as a fine layer, and Taste; hops, carbonation, some sort of sweet-n-sour malts. Palate malts mainly, but has a mild and well balanced bitterness too, and not especially watery. Ends with notes of bread, cardboard, hoppy carbonation. Overall decent pale lager.

Appearance: golden, pale, clear, frothy, white foam, lasts well. Aroma: metal, iron, hay but metal covers aroma. Taste: lightly sour, lightly bitter. Palate: light body, thin waterish feel, average carbonation, abrupt finish.

Definitely one of the best beers in Estonia. Like the name says, it has a special taste which feels fresh and enjoyable.

ogivlado (7955) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 19, 2017
Canned 330ml. -Golden coloured, big white head, dusty caramel nose. Sweetish malty, cereals, some caramel and corn with touch of honey and grain in the finish. Lean and watery, typical Northern macro.

Clear golden color with a white head. Sweet and malty with hint of hops. More body than their Premium version but still nothing special.

Rask0lnikov (1399) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 23, 2016
330 ml can. Pale yellow colour. High white head. Sweet, malty aroma. Quite sweet beginning. Maltiness, hints of caramel in the middle. Rather sweet finish. Too sweet, light bodied, rather watery and over carbonated lager beer.

Is this the answer to Saku Kuld? Maybe, but they done worse. This is just basically pee-colored water, like the other reviewers mentioned.

Fancy bottle, but thats it. Regular thirst quencher but not special beer. Good to enjoy with meal.

Gangstergafje (1231) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2015
The beet looks really nice. The bottle gives a very luxury look. The color is a brights golden yellow. It looks like a good single malt. The beer forma some rough white foam. The smell is nice. There is some sweetness and a nice fresh smell. Not that special, but nice. The taste isn’t that strong. There is a nice hoppy taste and some sweetness. Quite nice and refreshing. Not that special though.

TorbenJensen (1548) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2015
Very compact foam. Very little aroma. The taste is watery and has almost no malt profile. Hops profile is anonymous and almost not being present. The bottle with foil lined neck and label exudes elegance and beautifully cohesive design, but the content is surely not exciting. It is brewed to mark the brewery’s 200th anniversary, but in my opinion a little wasted effort. Well, it is easy to drink because of the lack of malt and hops flavor. It is more a thirst-quencher than a beer.
