2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a smokey amber-orange body with a large, creamy off-white head. Aroma is quite faint, with only a few grassy hop notes reaching me as I try to sniff up something to type. Oh wait, there is also a few faint notes of red fruits, otherwise pretty blank. Taste is pale malts, nuts, nougat, straw and hints of dry grass and mild herbal touches in the back. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation. An OK ale, but either this bottle is far too old (I can’t find any BB date) or it should be labelled as "English Pale Ale" (in which case it would have scored a bit higher in my book - this is certainly no APA).

Draught at a beer festival at Dizengof Center, Tel Aviv. Hazy orange. Citric and floral hops aroma. Flavor has light malty sweetness, yeasty notes, light fruitiness, citric hops, floral hints and a mildly bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Decent and refreshing but not enough assertive hoppiness and bitterness for my liking.
