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.

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.

RBESG08 grand tasting.
I really liked the Taybeh Golden (the version brewed in Palestine) and I hoped that I would like this as well. Poured a nice murky brown red body with a nice light brown head. Notes of cocoa, coconut and caramel malt in the nose. Chocolate pudding taste with some sweet maltiness. Trace hops. A surprisingly nice, light and pleasant beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - much thanks to KerenMK for the new country tick! Pours clear dark brown to black with a ruby tint, medium off-white head that slowly disspates with nice lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of roasted malt, caramel, grass, and perhaps a bit of metal. Flavor is the same, initially smoky and a bit salty, although the smokyness fades with time. Medium sweet with a light grassy/metallic bitterness. Medium body. Interesting and certainly drinkable.
