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.

This is almost certainly Israel’s version of Busch. Although it’s not as overpoweringly skunky. Actually it doesn’t really have a strong flavor. Hmm maybe this is quite a bit better than Busch. It kinda grows on ya.

Bottle. It poured a yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of bread and some hay. The taste was similar with more bread, some hay, resin and dough. Decent.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at Casino de Paris, in the Mahane Yehuda Market. (Excellent place btw). Appears very much like a pilsner, straw yellow, with a decent head (the glass might not have been optimal). I don’t pick much up in the aroma, quite bland, the taste is much the same - distant malts, some light touch of hops in the end. It’s a little more full on that a regular industrial pilser, for sure, but it’s not that special either. Works well for a hot day when in need for a refreshment.
