PRO 12/04/2014 -
Dark in the glass with a white head. slightly roasted smell. The beer starts smooth with a nice roasted caramel aroma. Not too sweet. The mainpart is full-bodied, nice caramel, slightly roasted with hints of sourness. Smooth. The aftertaste is medium, slightly malty sweet, nearly no bitterness.
Very nice for a beer from Palestine.

Dark reddish brown colour, diminishing beige head. Malty aroma, caramel, light coffee. Sweet malty flavour, sweet caramel. Bit thin body. Sweet caramel finish. Not bad, bit on the sweet side for me, but not bad at all.

18/I/14 - 33cl bottle @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: 25/VII/13, bottled: 25/VII/13 (2014-85) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!
Clear red brown beer, small beige head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit smoky, grains, hint of mocha, hay. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: grains, bit smoky, mocha, bad chocolate, some coffee. Aftertaste: bit funky, overripe fruits, caramel, dried fruits, smoky, earthy. Pretty complex for a Middle Eastern beer, but still not very good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Obtained in a trade with tlahav. Pours a dark red pomegranate-hued dark brown with no head. Smell tart, light vinegar, red berries, this doesn’t feel entirely right, not per se off-puting, it isn’t too good either. Tastes of bitter leaves, hebs, smoke, red berry sourness, tangy. Touch less carb. I doubt that they intended it to be this way, nice effort I suppose from Palestine but infected sadly never-the-less which appears to be how it always is going by the other ratings.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Beer Market dated July 25, 2013. Pours a dep opaque brown with frothy tan head. . Odd winey aroma carries into flavor and detracts from even dry/aweet dark malt character. Disappointing, cannot tell what they wanted to do.
