2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ Home. Muddy amber colored beer with minimal carbonation and head formation. Super herbal and lemony. A lot of citrus zest. Some bread, lemon tea, and grass. Kind of a fresh thyme and rosemary flavor, too. Bitter herbs and wood. Tangy citrus and a little bit of tea. A whole lot of sweet caramel and toasted grains, too. Messy.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Keg at Beer Market. Brown with off white head. Not much in the aroma, some earth and toffee. The taste is a disaster zone, mouldy, sewage, earth, some perfumed floral notes. Rank

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a cloudy, dark golden orange color with dark apricot colored edges and a thin off-white head that immediately disappears. Not very pale. Almost brown really with minimal spots of lace.
Slightly earthy, floral hop aroma with somewhat stale grassy, saaz-like hops and a strong malt backbone. Subtle pine needle and spruce tip character along with leathery and sweet malt notes. Some caramel, toffee and dark fruit notes, notably fig and plum. Smells more like a bland hoppy barleywine at this point.
On the lighter end of medium body with a dry, resinous hop character up front that provides sticky bitterness that lingers over the strong malt backbone into the finish. Slightly spicy and earthy with dirty/soily hops, grass and spruce tip followed by leathery malt, toffee and caramel sweetness. Hop flavor is a bit stale and the flavor and mouthfeel sort just fall off mid-palate. Watery and bland in the finish and doesn’t really resemble a pale ale at all in my opinion. Disappointing first beer from Israel and this brewery. Hopefully the blonde and dry stout are better.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber with a fading beige head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit peel. Sweet with some sticky bread crust, citrus and some herbal notes. Quite dry and moderately bitter at the end. Lacks a bit of body for 5.5% but refreshing and pleasant enough.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle at some goofy ass place. Looks like I’m drinking in a fucking war zone. No paint on the walls, no floors. Wtf. Pours brown, little head. Doesn’t look much like a pale. Cloudy. Looks like a brown ale. Aroma is burnt caramel, toast, grain, faint pine. Taste is grainy, corn, slight apple cider, metallic. Bad. Light, thin mouthfeel. Fucked.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap in Akko. Fruchtig-malziger Antrunk. Nicht zu herb mit toll floralen Tönen. Nicht zu süßer Malzkörper, frisch mit leicht pinien-floralen Tönen. Nicht zu herb im Nachgeschmack und sehr erfrischend floral auf der Zunge. Lecker!
