COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

50cl bottle at Depeche Mode Baar, Tallinn. Pours golden with a white head. Lightly fruity and malty aroma, reminds me a bit of wheat beer. More fruity and more body than expected. Some bitterness in the finish. Easy to drink and quite well balanced. (2012-11-17)

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.

djoeye (1855) - 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!

JohnnyRio (53) - FINLAND - AUG 20, 2013
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.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2380) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 11, 2013
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...

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" ....
