COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As a young shepherd, David famously vanquished the giant Goliath with a hand-crafted sling. Our modern anti-hero Bart Simpson clowns through childhood vrith a slingshot. Homer. Caesar. and Thucydides wrote of slings. The IRA. The Incas vs the Conquistadores. Native Americans and Palestinians have all wielded this iconic weapon of the underdog. A low-status tool, ancient slings were rarely preserved in the tombs of the wealthy. Michelangelo’s David embodied resistance and epic beauty in the Renaissance. Slingshots meant merry mischief to Dennis the Menace, Calvin, Woody Woodpecker and the Beverly Hillbillies. A musician and poet, the teenage David rescued his sheep from the mouth of lions. The first to unite the entire nation of Israel. the lineage of the Messiah descends from him. In Samuel 17, rising to the boasts of a mighty enemy, David refused the armor and weapons of the King. instead proclaiming victory. Not by my sword but by my Spirit” David in Hebrew means “Beloved”. I am approaching the age that my dad. David. died when I was a teenager. A lifelong Special Ed teacher and summer Army reservist. he served as both loving mentor and affable prankster a dedicated advocate for the underdog. In Alchemy, the Star of David equals a mystical union of male/female earth/sky leading to nirvana. The 6-pointed Brewers Star blends fire, water, malt, yeast, hops, and the character of the brewer. In the spirit of a slew of Dards & Slingshots. Shmaltz hoists our tribute to the glories of Summer… L’Chaim! Jeremy Cowan, proprietor

Pineapple yellow, with the apparent thickness of honey. Aroma is bready, heavy Ringwood yeast quality. Pollen. It dances on the tongue. The yeast is very heavy.

reebtogi (4100) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
355ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus and grains with hints of caramel. Taste is a light citrusy hop bitterness with a mild caramel malty sweetness. A well crafted lager that is much tastier than the usual macro swill. Very refreshing and recommended.

Cybercat (3226) - Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a fairly thick but not persistent off-white head. Wheaty aroma has lemon and yeast side notes. Wheaty flavor is quite refreshing and pleasing, with hints of lemon and hops. Texture is smooth and rather firm, if not too fizzy. Sling one down your throat.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Poured up on tap at Flanny’s with a crystal clear gold body that supports a light tan head of foam that someone eventually settled down to a bright white foam ring, not sure how it changed colors. The aroma offers up sugar sweet malts, cotton candy and then floral to lime like hoppiness. The taste begins sweet with a Pils like maltiness and then it flows into a nice mix of spicy and floral Noble like hoppiness. To midway and into the finish the hops jump up to a pleasing degree of bitterness. Nice refreshing brew.

Golden in color. Slight aroma of citrus, pine and fresh kitty litter. Crisp taste of citrus and minty aftertaste. Good lager flavor. A nice beach beer...
