3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Swerved a light brown/amber color, topped with a decent off-white head. Malty aroma, some noticeable notes of hops. Later on some fruity notes. Sweet start followed by a nicely bittery body. Slightly spicy/peppery finish. Liked it.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Growler sample at Beer Market Jaffa. Thanks Stas. Two-weeks-old growler. Aroma of malt, grains, caramel, somewhat stale, with rotten vegetables. Sweet flavor with malt, vegetables, caramel and sourish finish. Light to medium-bodied. Probably a lot better when fresh, but right now this is very unpleasant, awful even.

Could probably be a nice beer, but the taster at Beer Market in Tel-Aviv was over the deadline, gone sour. 201406

Sample from a growler bottled in 28.5.14, thanks Stas. Reddish cloudy amber with white head. Sour, acidic aroma, slightly grainy and a little sour taste. Hardly any carbonation, light body and a little juicy finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewery. Aroma is slightly stale, woody. Yeasty. Very lightly hazy amber colour, white head, moderate duration. Taste has more of the same as aroma, although it is not as tragic as one might think. Rather bitter with ambiguous hops character. Despite not being in the top league, it is still pretty easily drinkable, with modest bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewpub in Ulan Bator. Aromas of malt, caramel and fruit. Looks appetising: a cloudy dark amber body with a thin but stable head. A little on the thin side. Flavours were nice but somewhat fleeting. A little more depth would have made this much more satisfying. Still, not a bad drop.
