1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Brown, interesting bottle, holding 50cl of beer. This was one of a host of lagers I had during a blind tasting evening (November 2008).
Pale yellow, golden colour, bright and clean looking, the pure white head fell away to leave just a wisp very quickly.
Very little aroma, gets my standard 3 score for a non smelling lager/pilsner.
Tasteless and bland, not impressed at all.
Watery and boring, metalic and nasty feel to it.
Not a beer I’ll be braking my neck to find again.

Bottle. Pale straw coloured beer with a white froth. Hay/Grass nose with slight oaty malts. Mouth is very light and fresh with grassy hops and a hint of tomato. Finish is light and oaty with a little lemony hint. I’ve had worse.

Allt som åker över Östersjön mellan Sverige och Estland är alkoholhaltigt. Till Tallin åker packade svenskar med ögonen i kors och i retur får vi Saku Kuld. Inget snack om vem som gjort det bästa bytet.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the bottle, chilled. It pours well with very fine eddying streams of bubbles raising a thick, rocky white pad that lifts up a good half inch from the lip. The head held high it influences the taste and smooth mouthfeel. Toasted barley, toasted wheat, straw and hay bales give an all too pleasing aroma of a farm harvest in the Summer heat. Creamy, foamy, biscuity and sweet on first sip. Very light bodied, but solid in mouthfeel. Raspy, spicy, herbal hops at back, a bitter finish to it with lasting Hallertauer hop notes in the finish. Sweetness oddly mellows out as it warms to show some grainy, husky malt notes and more of the hops. This is easily a quaffable lager, simple and purposeful. Not bad!

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle courtesy of the Indian. Pale coloured lager, thin body, faintly hoppy and slightly grainy aroma, overall pretty forgettable basic lager.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can, a gift. ABV is 5.2%. Very pale golden colour, large white head. Moderate sweetish aroma, some floral and grassy notes. Thin and watery mouthfeel. The flavour is quite bland, the hops are too modest, but there are no offensive side flavours.
