Karksi Hele meeldib tavaliselt ikka aastaringselt, aga suvel soojaga kulub seda lihtsalt poole rohkem.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 1, 2014
33cl/50cl/1L PET Watery pale lager. Initially it was thick, creamy, hoppy beer, but in the last two years it is really disappointing. If you gonna dilute your beer - dilute the price.

Zarkam (538) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Tallinn. Clear deep gold colour, small fizzy white mostly vanishing head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and nuts and light floral hops. Taste is initiallyslightly sweet and acidic, turning into a light bittersweet finish with an acetic feel. Medium body, oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. A fairly pleasant lager, nothing Earth-shattering and a bit low on the hops but one of the better mass-produced Estonian lagers I tried.

Clean golden color, small white head. Light sweet malty aroma with. Taste is sweet too, with malt, caramel, yeast, some bread and honey and quite strong alcoholic lightly bitter finish. Watery body and medium carbonation. Does not taste like regular pale lager, more like Vienna style. Overall nothing special but drinkable.

Bottle at home (0,5 L). Clear yellow with a white head. Aroma moderate malty (caramel). Flavor moderate sweet. Medium body. To sweet. Have they used hops at all?

1L plastic bottle. Golden but no head. Low carbonation. Looks and smells like liquid butter. Taste is strange: buttery, nutty and slightly citric. I wonder why the 0,5L swing top bottle costs almost double the price of this 1L plastic bottle version.
