3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dagan’s place. Thanks Oren. Clear golden. Aroma of grainy cereals and some floral hoppiness. Flavor starts sweetish and malty and continues dry and hoppy, moderately bitter with some citric notes. Medium-bodied. Enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Lightly toasted malts and spicy hops coalesce in this cuddly Golden Ale of low intensity and high drinkability.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam covers the misty honeyed blond.
-Balance is achieved from beginning to end.
-The spicy hops provide leveled bitterness.
-Peaceful carbonation feels natural enough to emulate a cask experience.
-Fruity angles suggest oranges.
-Light sweetness never gets cumbersome.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with an amber hue. Beautiful creamy big off-white head that stays a long time and results in great foamy lacing. Great sweet malty nose that gives out fruitiness well-balanced with some hoppy notes and honey. The taste is not as hoppy as the aromas give out to be. Grainy bread, malty with a little honey and just enough hop to create a little bitterness and grass in the finish. Good creamy mouthfeel that eventually becomes a bit more oily and watery. A pretty damn good session brew.
