"אולד פפא" נקראת על שם גאון התלמוד רב פפא, אב לעשרה בנים, מיססד ישיבה גדולה בנראש ובשלן בירה הכי "הכי" בבבל העתיקה. ידועה בזכות ה"סודני" המפורסם שלו (בירה עם דבש תמרים), אנו מכבדים את זכרונו עם "אולד פפא". תוספות מועשרות של סילאן ישראלי מאוזנות עם שעורה וכשות איכותית, בדיוק כמו הבירה המקורית מלפני 1,700 שנים, הבירה החזקה ולא-מסוננת הזאת מעניקה איזון עדין בין המתוק והמריר, בין המעודן והמחוספס, בין העתיק והמודרני, ו- אם יורשה לנו - בין הארצי והשמיימי.

Bottle. It poured a hazy amber color with a white head. The aroma was of malts, caramel, yeast and floral notes. The taste was similar to the aroma with more malts, caramel, some fruit and floral hop notes.

In short: spicy harsh ale.
Pours hazy deep gold with little white head. Short head retention, some lacing. Spicy, cinamon, malty nose. Medium body, average carbonation, oily texture. Taste is quite spicy, malty, some caramel and some harsh due to high alcohols-fusels.

Shain (162) - ISRAEL - SEP 18, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2015 9/18/2014 Bottle 330ml. Pours dark reddish brown, with a medium light colored yellowish head. Aroma is of strong sweet malt, toffee, yeast and some alcohol. Body is medium, slightly thick, with weak carbonation. Tastes lightly sweet, with a nice rounded background bitterness. Flavor is mostly of dark malt with some roasted notes. Some very noticeable alcoholic flavors, some esters, slightly fruity, some hop bitterness with fruity-herbal hop notes and mellow lemony sourness. Ends very clean. Quite nice, and balanced but not exiting. Too much alcohol flavor and too flatly carbonated. Easy drinking but not light. Not a beer to give much thought to, but it does have some complexity. 13/1/2015 On tap, small amount. Pors dark amber-brown. Tastes nicely sweet, with some nice gentle bitterness. Fruity and malty sweetness and some nice hops. Full flavored and quite not heavy. Slightly IPA-like in flavor, but not as hoppy. Nice.

In taste it’s a bit caramel and malty. It’s clear, dark amber color, with small head but great lacing. In taste there is a small but pleasantly long bitterness with delicate alcohol aftertaste. In the end it’s a little bit to sweet for me.
