COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Alexander Green is the second in our series of seasonal beers, a hoppy beer based on the known IPA style but with our Israeli twist. The hops are at the front - starting with a wonderful fruity aroma of grapefruit, guava, mango and other fruits. At the mouth, smooth sweetness and full body balanced by a grapefruit-like long lasting bitter finish.

Bottle at Chriso Easter "Flags of many nations" Tasting, 31/03/13 thanks to Tomer for the trade. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head.

Benzai (13591) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle [from Euro Swap 2015-2 thanks to tomer] @ home. Slightly unclear orange color, average to medium sized white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly hoppy, a hint of fruityness and softly bitter. A decent IPA, quite easily drinkable, but no grapefruit long lasting bitterness unfortunately.

DSG (11468) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 19, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 Re-rate 3/17/16: Draught sample at Beer Market TLV. Slightly hazy golden. Grainy with a bit of yeast, and mild citric and floral hops. Some bitterness. Not nearly as good as it used to be when it was just released - still drinkable but pretty weak. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8

Bottle sample at the Beer & Beyond room in "Icon" Sci-Fi/Fantasy festival in Tel Aviv. Pretty clear golden color with a small white head. Lovely fresh floral and citric hops in the aroma. Flavor has a bit of sweetness at first and continues with pleasant bitter hops, floral and somewhat grapefruity. Medium-bodied. Tasty and quaffable. A step-up for Alexander. 8/3/7/3/14=3.5
