3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
07/11/2013 330ml bottle (thanks Ariel!). Bruna, leggera e limpida, schiuma media, poco persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, leggero affumicato, perfettamente bilanciata, non male! In bocca conferma le sensazioni olfattive, mostra un ottimo equilibrio e una bella beva, finale minerale e pulito, davvero una bella birra! Corpo leggero, carbonazione media. Ottima!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thnx to Tomer. Pours a clear amber beer with a medium sized, creamy tanned head on top. Aroma is light smokey and malty. Flavour is much more complex, with the smoke more present and slight fruity sweetness in the background. Nicely in balance, short finish, thin mouthfeel. Decent brew

Bottle and a rather old one. Cloudy dark brown with a big, creamy white-pink head. Dry smoke, ash and fruit aroma. Very smoky taste and a little alcoholic. Bottle’s old so all the sausageness and mustard seed that’s so typical of this beer’s gone :(
Medium body, well-carbonated, faint smoky finish. One of my all-time favourite Israeli beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - thanks Keren! Pours clear hazelnut with a medium beige head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is smoke. Flavor is the same, very light sweetness, minimal bitterness. Smoked character ever present but not overpowering. Quite nice actually.

[Thanks to tomer]. Bottled. Dark coppery colour with minimal and quickly diminishing beige head. Aroma is malty, smoky and light caramelish. Flavor has hints of smoked meat, wood notes and a minimal sourness. Sour and smoky final.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home in London. Many thanks to Tomer for providing. Breakfast beer to kick off my trip to the USA; it’s now 5:16am. Pours a kind of muddled russet with a large, frothing tan head that fades into a short cream. Nose gives off a hefty dose of smoked caramel, toast, ripening fruits. Light sweet flavor with further smoked caramel character, some dry leaves, mellow toasty bread. It’s not as sweet as I had expected, or as sweet as I would have hoped. Light bodied with lively, explosive-in-the-mouth carbonation. Dries out slightly to finish, more leaves, light bitterness, mellow smoked malts, dry caramel. Not an altogether great beer. Quite rough around the edges.

330ml bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Almost clear deep mahogany color with red hues and a big rocky and steady beige head.
Smoky nose - not too intense but definitely noticeable (mostly of smoked meat). Additional aromas of caramel malt and faint herbal hops.
Malty flavors with low bitterness, smoked wood, caramel and some toffee.
Light-med body, lively carbonation, soft smoked aftertaste. Nice.
