3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle received in a trade with Keren. Pours a golden brown colour with a lasting cream colour head. Aroma of hop, malt, caramel, with notes of banana and raisin. Quite high level of bitterness over a light sweetness. Medium body. Average carbonation. Finish has a lingering bitterness accompanied with caramel and treacle. Best beer I’ve tried from Israel (though to be fair this is only the 4th).

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Thanks DSG: Shaker:
Large creamy head.
Cloudy hazy amber body.
Aromas of soft creamy fruits and soft hop fruits, light floral, light malty, ripe yellow and orange fruits, light hop citric tints and some caramel.
You can taste the flavour is build around a good malty core, very nice malty tones and a caramel tint with lots of hop fruits, floral hops and even a light hop acidity. Some herbal tones like grass and hay with some fat orange fruits and a yeasty sprinkle.
Aftertaste is good/stronger bitter with a good dose of herbal tints, floral, grass and grapefruit tints.
Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, good medium bodied.
Another tasty beer from Israel.
