Smells like canned corn. Skunky too. Gold color. Sugary taste, thin, with an oily mouth feel. Just not a good beer.

A little skunk in the bottle. Very unpleasant flavor, like sticked out water.

I thought this was really good. I wasnít expecting anything special at all, but was pleasantly surprised with a light, crisp pilsener from Israel of all places. Tasted great with my fish and chips, let me tell you. Color was a very attractive straw yellow, very clear. My only complaint was that the overall taste was fairly shallow, and lacked any real complexity. Sometimes itís nice to keep it simple.

Light gold color, medium head. Light bodied lager. Mildly malty and hoppy. Crisp taste. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and slightly dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. Fairly standard tasting lager. Drinkable, but nothing special.

I found a sixer of this in bottles at the local drive thru...go figure. Fresh nose of toasted malt, caramel, raisins and flowers. Pours a light clear straw. The huge white creamy head is fully lasting with good lacing. The flavor starts sweet (dried fruit) and finishes nutty. Good balance, and an abundance of depth for the style. The thin lively body is watery and feels clean and dry at the finish. This feels much more like a Pilsener than an American Standard Lager to me. I donít know why this beer is knocked so hard, much better than the ratings would indicate IMO.

They modelled this after American lagers; I guess it wouldnít do for the Israelis to make an overly Germanic beer. Itís largely inoffensive, well suited to warm weather. I disagree with klundgren, though; spicy food would annihiliate this beer.

Nasty cloudy apperance with no good head to note. Scary taste of green grass. Nasty nasty aftertaste. Needed a few beers to scour this crap from my palate.

Well, chalk up another Country - Israel. Nothing spectacular - tasted similar to Heineken - not quite as skunky. Probably would taste good with spicy food.

This beer is light enough to read through. Skunky smell with a thick white head. Tastes very watery with a mild hops flavor. All together, this one is best avoided except for the novelty. Itís gonna take me a while to get through all six.
