On-tap. Pours a hazy amber with a small head. Fruits, hops, honey and malt aromas. Taste is nicely balanced between sweetness, malts and hoppy bitterness. Nice beer.

O piwach z Izraela wiadomo raczej niewiele. Po kolejnej próbie wyrobu z tego kraju stwierdzam, że nie mam ochoty zgłębiać tej wiedzy. Nie są to piwa do wylania, ale przyjemności dostarczają bardzo niewiele. Nieco mętne, w kolorze bursztynu, z pianą pod postacią wąskiego pierścienia nie zachęcało do picia... W aromacie lekko karmelowe, nieco metaliczne. W smaku również metal wyczuwalny, słodkawe, goryczka bardzo niska. Słabiutko...

Andy_ (1039) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Orange hazy beer with quickly dissolving head. Aroma has is musty with wooly socks and flowers. Flavor has malts, bitterness, caramel and yeast. Quite thin palate with strong carbonation. Medium bitterness with sweet and yeasty aftertaste. Weird and messy.

DraftDodger (1036) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 4, 2015
Copenhagen 4/4 2015. 33 cl bottle brought home from Tel Aviv. Nice label with vultures staking out beer drinking fellow enjoying the sun set. Pours hazy amber with white head. Settles into thin layer fairly fast. Quite sweet aroma. Candylike with toffee. Soft carbonation. Taste is sugary with a sharp sour edge. A little citrus goes with the sweetness in the aftertaste. Not terrible but I liked their Oasis beer better.

Small but stable head over honey colored hazy body. Aroma of prunes, raisins, and honey malt, possibly oxidation . Tastes sweet to the point of cloying, again with an oxidized note which gets more pronounced in the palate. This beer is fairly unpleasant to drink, but in view of the other ratings it’s possible I’ve fallen on a bad batch/bottle. I’ll try this again in a few months.

Tinco (613) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle. Hazy with no head. Aroma: sweet caramel, bisquit, some spices. Taste: caramel, honey, sugars very sweet. After half a glass it almost becomes clying. All in all a decent brew.

Brainiac (218) - Riga, LATVIA - AUG 10, 2013
Glass bottle. Aroma is great, toffee fudge or something caramel malty. Good balance, but cant say more, new to this style.

HoopsandHops (39) - ISRAEL - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle in Jerusalem. Exp date: 6/2015. Pours a peachy light orange color with half a finger of soapy uneven head, hazy with minimal carbonation rising slowly. Aroma is rich with malt and yeast with some hop brightness -- leather, grain, damp soil, some floral notes. Taste is less interesting, sweet up front like Juicy Fruit gum, and the sweetness is sustained throughout the swig. Faint hops surface upon swallowing but only ephemerally. Not much else -- pleasant but light and monochrome in character. Body is medium, carbonation is light to medium, lacing is okay, warms well, some yeast at base of bottle. Bottom line: for a sub-5% ABV beer, this is good.
