COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
רונן הבירה המכוערת
בירה הודית
לשעבר "רונן ההודית המכוערת".

Formerly known as "Ronen HaHodit HaMekhoeret India Pale Ale" (Ronen The Ugly Indian).

למה בירה מכוערת? בגלל הניגוד הבולט בין הניחוח הפירותי המתקתק לבין טעמה המריר בלגימה הראשונה!
הבירה הינה מסוג האייפיאיי (אינדיה פייל אייל) שמקורה עוד במאה ה-19 כשהבריטים העבירו בירה לחייליהם הצמאים המוצבים בהודו. בכדי שהבירה לא תתקלקל בדרכה הארוכה בים, היא בושלה עם כמויות נדיבות של צמח הכשות המשמש כחומר משמר טבעי. סוגי הכשות השונים נותנים לבירה מרירות מודגשת המשולבת בטעמים פירותיים וארומות נפלאות של אשכולית אדומה, ליצ’י ופסיפלורה.

Benzai (12384) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
Bottle [from Euro Swap 2015-2 thanks to tomer] @ home. Clear dark orange to reddish color, medium sized beige head that lasts for quite a while and leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, caramalt. Taste malts, hops, caramalt again, medium to firm bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Not bad.

kappldav123 (5816) - GERMANY - MAY 29, 2015
Huge thanks to Zeev for that one! Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, nice head. Starts mild, malty, more and more hoppy, quite dry. Some grasy notes. All in all too unbalanced, not too drinkable. Only average.

330 ml. bottle @ home. Obtained in the big Israeli trade. Apparently the #2 Israeli beer on RB. I have had the entire top 5 from Israel. Lightly hazy very dark amber beer, solid lightly off-white head. Nice lacing. Nose is sweet pine resin, grapefruit, oddly slightly umami, meaty, faintly reminiscent of smoked malts, interesting. Taste is bitter typical pine resin, sweet pine cones, umami, slightly smoked feeling pine resin, pine cone taste, odd sweetish spices, thick caramel malts, light herbal, touch peel, quite umami taste, quite herbal, orange peel, rather malty with thick pine taste,… Thick malty body, thick mix. of malts & hops. Quite umami for an IPA which surprisingly really feels like a DIPA. Very umami, quite interesting, I have some mixed feelings about this one. I guess that it is turning me a bit away from it, I won’t give it stellar marks but decent marks still since it was quite interesting.

A surprising and exceptional find in Israel. Excellent balance of hops and fruit. A wonderful ipa that could match many of the best coming out of the NW of the USA.

Kita (1783) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of Miha. Cloudy amber brown color with large soapy off-white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of citrus, passion fruit, peach, pine and some yeast. Taste starts with light sweet caramel malt, following is resinous and fruity, mouthfeel is spicy, while finish is heavy bitter with long pleasant aftertaste. Medium body, oily texture and lively carbonation in palate. Well done peppery IPA...
