3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours a clear golden color with a small white head that leaves some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is very floral with some mild grains. Taste is a pleasing hoppy bitterness with a nice malty backbone. A very enjoyable blonde ale with a light to medium body and adequate carbonation. Recommended.

Tap. This is actually really rather ace. I had no expectations coming in. Very fruity - almost comical, but never over the top. Body is just right to get a few in and it has a charm that can be difficult to find in beers of similar ilk at this ABV. Nice one!

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.

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.
