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

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.

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.

Gold, small head. Grainy lactic and jam aroma, some pancake. Dishwatery taste. Some biting hops and a papery hoppy finish.

Plastic bottle (Thanks TM). Golden colour, not too much head. Aroma is biscuits, bready malts, some mild notes of grains and rubber. Flavour is quite much the same, as well as some strange sweetish starch/maizelike notes lurking as well.

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.
