Saku Tume(6,7%) has a great dark colour and rich taste. It is Estonia’s only strong dark beer and brewed for experienced beer lovers who can appreciate the fuller taste of dark beer. For the preparation of Saku Tume, in addition to pilsner malt, Munich and caramel malt, as well as burnt sugar is used. This gives the beer its special dark colour, unique sweet taste and a rich fragrance bouquet.
A characteristic of dark beer is that in order to get a better feel for its taste nuances, it has to be enjoyed at a slightly warmer temperature. Whereas the ideal serving temperature of light beer is considered to be 6-8 °C (straight from the fridge), then the ideal temperature for drinking Saku Tume is 11-15°C.

The best way to enjoy Saku Porter would be in front of a fireplace or by candlelight during those long and dark winter nights. This beer keeps you warm through the coldest time of the year. Saku Porter has been the traditional crown of Christmas feasts and accompanied roast meat and game. The fact that porter is also perfectly suited for various desserts, especially those containing chocolate, may not be that commonly known.

SAKU ON ICE
Summer is without doubt the best time of the year. But an Estonian summer is definitely the best kind of summer there is. Everyone spends this time differently and at their own pace. But no matter how it’s spent, a true Estonian summer never goes without the particularly mild ice beer Saku On Ice. The secret behind this flavour is a special technology where the beer is cooled down to below zero temperatures after brewing. This is what creates the soft yet pleasantly fresh taste of Saku On Ice. Refreshing Citrus On Ice and invigorating Pomegranate On Ice are available along with classic Saku On Ice. This summer, in addition to the above, we are also offering some sour notes in the form of cranberry flavoured Saku On Ice! Lower alcohol content (4%) and a slightly sweet flavour make these exciting beers a good alternative to ciders and cocktails.

Mead (Mõdu) (4,0%) is the king of all fermented drinks. The tradition of making it dates back to the beginning of civilisation.

Mead is made for setting the mood on national holidays a well as mellow summer evenings. It is a drink designed for celebrating.

IPA · KRIEK · BLOND BEERS
IPA, or India Pale Ale (5%) 0.5l was born in England in the 18th century when there was a need to send beer to British soldiers in India. The beer that was produced in Britain in those days would not have survived a six-month journey from Britain to India, so a special strong, heavily hopped beer was created. A. Le Coq IPA is a pale ale with strong hoppy flavour that has been brewed with Chinook, Amarillo, Cascade and Citra hops that add bitterness to the beer. A. Le Coq Kriek (4,5%) 0.5l is an ale that contains 15% of real cherry juice. In the brewing process we have used Hallertau Magnum hops and this beer has a nice sour cherry taste and a slight aroma of almonds. This beer was inspired by the well-known Belgian cherry beer Kriek. American Blonde Ale (5%) 0.5l has a rather short history – it was created in the US in the beginning of 1990ies when craft beers started to gain popularity. The initial aim of this beer type was to attract lager drinkers to craft beers. A. Le Coq Blond has been brewed with Tetnang, Tradition and Styrian Golding hops. The beer is slightly hazy with a straw colour and one can feel citrus undertones in its taste. Blond is a good alternative to hoppy beers.
