COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Karl Friedrich, or just Karl to his friends, is a simple pale lager with historical taste, boasting the delicious flavour of hops and the brew master’s pure spirit. It was brewed in honour of Karl Friedrich Rehbinder, the founder of Estonian beer culture and of Saku Brewery. Karl is a real beer, exactly as genuine Estonian beer used to be for centuries before modern times. There is no innovative crystal filtration or luxurious aroma bouquet, no posh hop cultivars or trendy freshness. This beer only includes barley malt, water, hops, yeast and the experience gathered by Saku brew masters over centuries. Traditional raw materials and brewing technologies create a beer that combines the bitterness of hops and the sweet hint of barley malt. A genuine and pure taste to be enjoyed by those who appreciate the charm of simplicity.

thellgren (1082) - Helsinki, - JAN 12, 2013
0.5 l bottle from Kaubamaja, Talliin. Very minimal head, looks like a lager, colour is more orange than yellow. Well, it smelled and tasted a bit like pear cider. That’s odd, anyway, nothing special. There is some sweetness, but not too much.

takové nijáké unifikované pivo slabšího řízu, nižší hořkosti. Při výrobě se snažili hlavně nikoho neurazit, takže je to takové nijaké...

Can, 5.0%. Mild grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is mildly grainy, malty and a little sweet. Not quite clean, but better than expected. Late rough bitterness.

Kirkas kullankeltainen olut paksulla valkoisella vaahdolla, joka katoaa lopulta kokonaan oluen pinnalta. Maltainen, ehkä pienellä hedelmän häivähdyksellä oleva tuoksu. Maku maltainen, viljainen ja ruohoinen. Yllättävästi vähintään keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Ei tämä kovin erikoinen ole, aika normilageriksi tippuu.
