4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mediocre from bottle, but fantastic from tap. One of my favorite Israeli beers. Close to an IPA, but seems to attract also drinkers who don’t like IPAs. Deep and lasting hoppy aroma, on the bitter grassy side. Taste is a little sweet, and very hoppy for its type, with floral notes.

An interesting hazy Amber Ale, somewhere in between an American and an English Pale ale. a surprisingly full body to the ABV. very good balance between bitterness and sweetness and with a noticed fruity taste in the backround.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought back from Israel. Poured a murky orange-amber with an off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, and fruit; also some nuts and earth. Flavor was pretty good for the style, and quite flavorful. Some caramel, fruity yeast like notes, sweet malt and a bit more fruit. Flavor lingers. Surprisingly nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dunkelgetreidiger, überraschend würziger Antrunk. Die Intensität bleibt bestehen, dazu kommt eine passende Herbe, die aber nur minimal bitter ist. Erst später milder, die Getreidigkeit bleibt konstant. Würziger Abgang, harmonisch. Da wurde positiv am Rezept gefeilt! 11/12/11/11/10/11

Bottle. Hazy amber color with a quickly-diminishing medium white head. Pleasant aroma of biscuity malts, some toast and caramel notes, and some nice hoppiness with citric and floral notes. . Sweet malty flavor with caramel, some fruitiness (peach, pineapple), bready notes and a bitter hoppy finish, quite herbal, with light citric and earthy notes. Medium-bodied and a rounded mouthfeel. A good one. 7/3/7/4/14=3.5
