devilben02 (281) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2012
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.

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.

rayaron (839) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - APR 23, 2015
Bottle sample. Slightly hazy yellow with small white head, quite fizzy. Floral aroma with hint of honey and some graininess, a bit earthy. Bitter-sweet flavor, a bit sugary, light hoppy bitterness with notes of herbs and honey. Very carbonated, light to medium-bodied.

zvsn (1155) - ISRAEL - OCT 11, 2014
On-tap at 55 Drafts and more. Clear yellow golden with a nice white head. Aroma of fresh grass, grains and light fruity hops notes. Sweetish, with bready malts and noble hops undertones and crispy hop bitterness, dry-ish bitter aftertaste. Light-medium bodied, easy drinking and well made.

Malty aroma with slight citrus notes. Cloudy golden appearance. Medium bitterness with bread flavour and a slight sweetness. Medium body with lively carbonation. A good session beer

j12601 (8000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Bottle at a tasting at James’ place. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Sweet bready fruit and yeast. Medium-bodied, sweet with a bit of grain and musk. Grainy, dry and bready into the finish. Some light skunky notes, old grain.

Smaskifa (136) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
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.

ThreeCats (694) - 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
