ThreeCats (801) - ISRAEL - AUG 9, 2013
Hazy golden body with a big foamy head. Aroma of grain and some yeast. Taste of grain and stone. Light bitterness that gets a little more pronounced on palate. Not that interesting, but as a drinkable lager it’s not bad

Tinco (611) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2013
Clear yelow with no head. Aroma: not too much going on there, mild aroma of some hops and malts....Taste: grassy hops, very refreshing, some rubbery note in there that is quite disturbing? All in all the best of the four beers tried at the brewpub.

It pours a cloudy, creamy yellow color, with a giant, fluffy white head. The aroma had very little hop character to balance against a combination of bready malt and some yeast esters. The flavor was likewise un-pilsner-like, with the muted hop profile being overtaken by sweet, bready malts and some almost-hefeweizen-like yeast characteristics. The texture was quite effervescent, but it also had a decent weight/mouthfeel. Overall, this was a decent beer and an interesting insight into Middle-eastern brewing, but it did not meet the expectations for a pilsner.

Oakes (15256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2011
Hazy blonde with a big, Belgian-ish head. Has a dusty, Duponty nose complete with hops and bready malts. The malts on the palate are a mix of thin and doughy. The hops, sadly, do not materialize on the palate. Ok overall, but disappointing after that nice nose.

Koelschtrinker (16417) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Leich würziger und kurzzeitig hopfiger Antrunk. Im Mittelteil sehr getreidig, die Hopfigkeit ist ebenso wie die Würze verschwunden. Auch im Abgang getreidig, kaum erkennbar malzmuffig. Zuletzt etwas wässrig werdend. In Ordnung! Danke an Barak für das Bier! Test vom 21.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,9,9,8,11,9 - 8,85

Beershine (5219) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Bottle. Gold with slight haze. Stable head forms like a Belgian, and appears to have Belgian yeast. This is confirmed by the aroma, which is Pelgian pils-like or at least Belgian strong ale-like. Nice perfume and citrus (orange or Indian sweetlime juice). Soft palate. Yeasty funk and a little unfortunate sourness and pedio. Maybe has an infection but not enough to impede enjoyment. Has a high degree of astringency. Like sucking on a raw persimmon. The citrus also carries through. Not the most well-executed beer, and although more than ok at first, it gets worse by the sip.

re-rate from brewpub. Is hazy pale blonde. Funky aroma has pedio and sweet, nutty cereal. No hops :( 4-3-4-2-8 = 2.1
