2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear medium amber with a long-lasting frothy white head, cobwebs of lace. Taste is understated caramel malt that, while agreeable, isn’t enough to actually qualify as a "good" brew. There is minimal bittering in the finish to help balance. Very small beer.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 4.9%. Metallic aroma. Clear amber colour. Very small white head. The flavour is papery and bready. Nutty finish, late aniseed feel, and low bitterness, other than that it might as well have been a pale lager. Not unpleasant, though.

Bottle bought at BBF13. pours clear amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of hops and yeast with faint notes of caramel and a touch of metal. Bitter flavour of hops and yeast with a sourish grainy note. Watery. Mildly bitter finish. Nothing to write home about.

Light Brown, Decent Head and Lacing. Malt and slight Skunk Aroma. Slightly Toasted, Malt, Light Bitter Finish. First thing that comes to mind, reminds of Newcastle Brown Ale. Back label says Kosher... :D Decent.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle in a restaurant bazar in Haifa, Israel. Moderately sweet, some malts, fairly average taste. Was expecting worse but on the whole this isn’t too bad.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Israel tick. 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a clear pale copper with a fast-collapsing off-white head; falls into a ring of foam. Aroma is caramelly, toasted marshmallow, cloying. Taste is cloyingly sweet with the same aroma descriptors along with some wet dog and oxidation thrown in. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy, body medium to thin. Not for me.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2 oz bottle at Steamers Seafood Company in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The pour is a darker golden copper with not too much head. The aroma is malt sweet, along with a bit of grassy aromatic German hops. The taste is the mix of sweet malt and grassy hops. The palate is light to medium bodied, lower carbonation level and a bit of residual sweetness in the longish finish. Decent enough beer, I had been hunting an Israeli beer, so was happy.

Nice drinking beer but nothing special. Slight caramel and a malty nose. Had at al-Riddas in Nazareth.
