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.

DSG (10950) - 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

crossovert (10760) - Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2015
33cl bottle. It seems liek even with a fresh shipment or so I would assume this one doesn’t make it. A mild and unoffensive ipa but it lacks a fresh hoppy punch.

kermis (9601) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2015
Bottle shared thanks to Mrhangover. Pours hazy to cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of biscuity malt, cardboard, light fruity hops and light citrus. Maybe this bottle is a bit old? The hops are certainly subdued. Flavour is light moderate sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Nice clean IPA, pure hoppy notes. Orange coloured and almost clear, has a white head, medium duration. Nice hoppy aroma, has notes of spice too. Flavor starts light sweet and finish heavy bitter. Dry texture and soft carbonation.

after4ever (7358) - Brier, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2014
330. Thanks, A! Pours a clear medium amber with a loose sudsy tan head. Big marmalade on toast on the nose, lots of tangy sweet orange pith along with toasty biscuit. Creamy medium body with lively carb, quite nice. Mildly toasty biscuity mid palate, great orange pith with mild orange juice on the mid palate. Great herbal hop notes near the finish too. Very convincing british IPA, and worth repeats.

gyllenbock (7168) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2013
On tap at Porter & Sons, Tel Aviv, July 2013. A bit hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of hay, some malt, light hops, citrus and caramel. Not that bitter. An ok one.

Bottle thanks to Keren! I perhaps sat on this too long given that it was an IPA :(. My apologies. Pours clear golden with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is quite malty, corn, grain, caramel, pine. Flavor is the same, medium sweet, light piney bitter. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. I thought this was actually pretty good on its own merits, but I am surprised to (afterwards) realize that it was an IPA.
