COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saku Koduõlu on vanade meistrite eeskujul pruulitud mõnusalt tummine ja maitsekas hele õlu. Umbes sellise mekiga õlut pruulisid meie vaarisad kodutalus siis, kui õlletegu veel iga mehe enda auasi oli. Ja just sellisena mäletavad paljud oma vanaisa aetud koduõlle maitset nooruspõlvest suviselt heinateolt.
Koduõlle eripäraks on maitse – magusavõitu, hapukas ja väga vähese humalamekiga. Et üks õige koduõlu on alati filtreerimata, muudavad pärmiosakesed õlle välimuselt suduseks ning maitselt veelgi ümaramaks.
Koduõlle pruulimiseks kasutatakse pinnakäärituspärmi, mis on sarnane tavalisele „pagaripärmile“, mida kasutatakse kodus maltoosast koduõlle ajamisel. Muus osas on aga Saku Koduõlu pruulitud nii nagu seda aegade algusest saadik on tehtud – alustades linnaste meskimisest ja lõpetades kääritamisega.
Selle õige koduse maitse saavutamiseks on Saku Koduõlle pruulimiseks kasutatud nii odra- kui nisulinnaseid. Viimase lihvi Saku Koduõlle maitsele annab tumedate linnaste kasutamine, mis annavad koduõllele veidi tumedama värvitooni ja maitses õrnalt tuntava röstise noodi.

Probably the best commercial beer in Estonia, this nicely-spiced, estery, wheaty beer has a great aroma and compelling malt taste, marred only slightly by a soapy finish

[2015 Backlog] Bottle shared at the FF tasting at Pauls. Pours a hazy golden body with thin white lacing. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with notes of flowers, yeast, tons of clove, spice, banana and additional soft fruity tones.

Hurjasti vaahtoava, samea kuparinvärinen olut, jota ei alussa pysty kaatamaan puolen litran pullosta samankokoiseen tuoppiin kuin yhden kolmasosan. Valkoinen vaahto on vieläpä todella tiivistä ja kestävää. Tuoksussa ennen kaikkea vehnäoluille tyypillistä vahvaa banaania. Myös maku jatkaa vehnäoluille tyypillisellä banaanisella sekä ehkä hieman persikkaisella linjalla. Ei tätä minään sahtina/kotioluena voi pitää, mutta kun vehnäoluena paremmasta päästä. Ihan linjakas tekele.

Kupiłem to piwo, bo spodobała mi się naklejka. I byłem pewny, że to lager. W aromacie uderzyły słodkawe, chlebowo-miodowe nuty. Do samego końca nie wiedziałem, że piję Sahti. Kojarzyło mi się z pszeniczno-jęczmiennym ejlem. Srednio wysycone. Trochę nudnawe piwo.

phfyysik (1389) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 2, 2016
Pours amber hazy with small white top. Nose is quite yeasty, a lot of honey, some sweet berry and malty notes. Taste is sweet, also honey and yeast. Can relate with some fruits. Quite too much carbonisation as Saku usually has. I have drunk quite a lot different home made beers, but this one still feels too industrial. Sorry!

500ml bottle, many thanks to my Estonian Secret Santa ’15 for my first Koduolu! Pours murky brown with frothy beige head. Aroma is yeast, banana. Taste is fluffy and sweet with banana and yeast esters, very similar to a roggenbier, with additional pear drop notes emerging. Right up my street this.

Sebilinz (2547) - Linz, AUSTRIA - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle. Thanks to Vambolade. Amber body with white large long lasting white head. Aroma is fruity mostly banana with malts. Taste is also fruity but with more citrus and nice malty background. Aftertaste is mostly sweet with some sourness and low bitterness. Nice one.

Gangstergafje (1225) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2015
The beer has a amber color with a reddish orange glow. The beer has a sunny glow and a sunny color. The beer is very cloudy, the cloudiness reminds of the cloudiness a witbier can have. The beer pours a normal amount of rough white foam. The bulk of the foam collapses. A thin soft drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell is delicious. The smell has some witbier in it as well. I smell orange zest. I also smell some lemon and lime. The aroma’s also contains bittersweet almonds. There is also banana, to top the fruit bouquet. There might also be some coriander. The smell is also filled with delicious hop aroma’s. The taste is an exact representation of the smell. There is a delicious sweet fruity aroma, with the zest, lemon, lime and banana. The coriander, almond and hop is also present in the taste. Its a delicious beer, really great. Its a shame we don’t make a beer like this in the Netherlands.

Bottle. Amber hazy. Fruity, sort of hefeweizeny/bocky estery banana, fine clove on nose. Med light bodied, a bit of a steep dry finish. Weak malty, estery. Not really a koduõlu, but estery nice. Has that dull bulkness there too, unfortunately.

Kauge (2064) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 28, 2015
BB 02.2016. Been meaning to try it for a while now. Pours all foam at first, it’s a bubbly, fluffy, off-white, moderately fast receding head. The body itself appears as murky translucent orange. The nose is kinda Belgian with nostril-burning esters and the not surprising bubblegum and banana notes. Strange, at points I also get a hint of dried and salted fish (vobla). Tastes really sweet, without anything to back it up - the watery palate is of no help. Malty, yeasty, watery sourish, and finishes herbal bitter. The mouthfeel is rather soft (it’s an unfiltered Saku!) and the finish kinda dry. Carbonation rather active. Best when very cool. Definitely among the best by Saku, but still weak. Would perhaps pass as an acceptable low-ABV Belgian Ale.
