Shain (145) - ISRAEL - SEP 15, 2014
On tap, tasted 100ml during Beers 2014 festival. Pours dark brown-orange. Aroma is gentle. Body is watery and light. Tastes slightly sweet and gently bitter. Flavor is lightly spiced with notes of roasted malt, but feels watery and diluted. No trace of pumpkins. Not very impressive.

apotekhin (79) - ISRAEL - NOV 15, 2013
Fun fruity beer. Light pumpkin flavor. I remember it having more pumpkin presence when I tried it in the past, that’s how I would prefer it. But there is that much you can do with Israeli pumpkins.

beerandbeyond (708) - ISRAEL - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle sample at the brewery. Slightly hazy amber color with no head. Sweet and spicy nose (ginger, clove, nutmeg), with some caramel and faint pumpkin. Sweet malt flavor, low bitterness, marmalade, some spice and winter cookies. Medium body, feels a bit alcoholic but overall a decent pumpkin ale.

ThreeCats (692) - ISRAEL - MAR 28, 2012
From two months old bottle (still well before expiration) Pours dark amber with a small foamy head. Aroma of malt, some spices, a little pumpkin but fairly faint. Light body with not much flavor at first but pumpkin and spices sort of develop on tongue. Decent Amber ale, but the promised pumpkin character was kinda missing. Possibly this beer should only be drunk fresh.

zvikar (4085) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JAN 26, 2012
At the 2nd Israeli Beer Exhibition, pours clear orange to brown, aroma of carrot, honey, malt, carambola and hops, flavor of caramelized pumpkin, malt, papaya jam, intense carbonation, medium bodied, pretty nice

tomer (2257) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JAN 16, 2012
Draught sample, hazy deep orange colour, malty aroma with pumpkin, flavour of pumpkin and sweet spices, cinamon, nutmeg and maybe allspice, feels smooth and quite thick. Drinkable and well made.

kerenmk (3414) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 15, 2012
Sample at the Beers 2012 expo in Tel Aviv. Cloudy, foamless orangey liquid, pumpkin, cooked vegetables sweet aroma, sweet, cinnamon taste that reminds me of Belgian caramel biscuits. Medium body, light carbonation, smooth.
