3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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" ....

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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??

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

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow beer with small head.
The aroma is light maltiness and a little herbal hops.
The taste has a hint of spicy hops and a light maltiness with corn. The after-taste is watery and carbonated, ending to herbal bitterness.
Quite light palate.
Saku Hele made a trade to the sweaty end of the day, just for thirst.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
5.2% bottle from Alkoholipood Merekeskus. Crystal clear straw gold, thick head of foam, nice lacing. Sweet, grassy sugar aroma. The taste is better, full bodied, neutral bitterness over a cereal, almost corn type of malt base. Not grainy though, an ok adjunct lager which isn’t something I thought I’d ever say...
