COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saku's oldest beer.
Saku Hele is a light special brew with a strong taste of hops and a pleasant aroma, which has been developed together with Czech master brewers. Saku Hele is brewed according to one of Saku’s oldest recipes in honour of Valerian Baggo, the lord of Saku Manor, who established a truly industrial brewery from the manor’s small brewery.

Bottle. Medium white head, One of the best beers in Estonia (I mean from the 2 main beer companies). Nothing special in aroma. Golden colour. The hoppiest of Saku beers. Drinkable, but lacks this "something special" ....

27.01.13: Bottle 0. 5 l, Tallinn, Estonia.
Jasnozłote piwo o słabej pianie. W smaku wodniste - bez smaku. Określenie "wodniste" jest tu najlepsze... wygląda jak rozwodnione, pachnie jak woda i smakuje jak woda.

TaaviK (16) - ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours amber with moderate off-white head. Caramel, roasted malt and grassy notes. Fruity sweet, malt and alcoholic. Thick and chewy. Lacks hobs and balance. Light-bodied. I missed some crisp refinement.

Senka (902) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 15, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2015 This is the only Helles in Estonia. But, it really depends from batch to batch. I had soooooo good batches in 2012 and 2013, but I am still waiting for 2014. Hoppy, bready and refreshing - where are you?? 2015 - mostly piss

Nice premium lager. Has character in the taste. This beer has become my "everyday beer" in the last years.

djoeye (2418) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2013
Bottle 50cl pudel, Rimi Pärnu Eesti. White modest head. Straw coloured body. Some citric scents, meadow, grass. Tastes hops, malts, toast, brown candies. Well balanced bitterness through the way, gives a serious mouthfeel. Ends with some toast, roasted malts, malt-candies, barbecue. Overall it is very tasty, and "hele" = light, bright, fair, does not describe that this beer has a stronger taste than beer of bright colour normally have. This is one of the upper products from Saku. See on üks ülemine tooteid Saku!
