gunnar (7980) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle from my European secret santa 2013. Pours murky brown with a huge frothy off-white head. Aroma is light sour brown malts, maybe a minor infection? Taste is moderate sweet dark roasted caramel, smooth mouthfeel, nothing wrong with this one, easy dry hops at the finish.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber with a small head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and toasted bread. Taste - sweetish with caramel and malty notes, hints of hops, mild bitterness, dry finish. Medium-bodied, low carbonation, smooth in mouth, easy drinking brew. Decent beer.

kerenmk (4191) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 3, 2012
Draught at the brewpub. Clear reddish colour with a big white head. Grainy, sugar, sweet raisins aroma. Tastes bitter and sour, but in a bad way. Light body, soft carbonation, short finish. Infected.

Selfish (12) - ISRAEL - SEP 1, 2012
It stinks and it’s awfully bitter. Zero palate, way too much ABV for Stout. Horribly ugly amount of untasty foam. Awful, bizzare beer.

Oakes (15803) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown and cloudy. Thin head. Earthy and slightly caramelly aroma. The aroma implies to me a relatively big bitter, but the soft and smooth character is more easy-drinking than that. Caramel notes and a light leafy hop note, decent and strongish.

zvikar (4200) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - FEB 28, 2011
Draught at Libira Pub, deep red with a thick light orange head, aroma of tangerine, loquat, guava, citrus and malt, flavor is bitter with nice citrusy notes, some mushrooms and some cardboard dryness, medium bodied.

tomer (3032) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 27, 2011
Draught, medium stable head, clear dark copper colour, floral aroma - orange blossom and rose petals, with touches of malt and nuts, flavour of caramel and brown sugar, a little heavy but still quite nice.

DSG (12153) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 9, 2010
Draught samples at the brewpub in Ginnegar. 5.3%. Slightly hazy deep golden to amber color. Aroma with malt, a bit of fruitiness and hints of caramel. Sweetish flavor of malt, some bread, biscuits and a mildly bitter and slightly earthy hoppy finish. Medium-bodied. 5/3/6/3/11=2.8
Cascade dry-hopped version: Hazy amber color. Floral hoppy aroma with earth and fruits. Flavor starts sweetish and continues with fresh hops and mild bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice and refreshing. 6/4/7/3/13=3.3
