2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

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!

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

Bottled. Thanks to Chicago Beer Society member Michael Rosenow for bringing this and some Taybeh over! Beer for peace! Pours a very light color in our skinny taster glasses. Some cloudiness. Smell and taste are just a little sweet and malty. Not much hops beyond a good balance to malt. I pick up a slight white grape or wine note, then a tinge pf sourness at the end.
