Bottle. [Courtesy of yespr, tasting @ yespr] Small fizzy white head, which mostly diminished. Clear flat looking body with a pale yellow colour.

Bottle. Thanks Jesper! Pours clear golden. Malty and grainy aroma. The flavour is rather thin, bit sweet with malt, grains and some hops. Weak grainy and bit sweet hoppish finish.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Perfectly inoffensive German-style lager. This beer has a nice golden sheen, not as watery-looking as many lagers from hot climates. No real aroma though, and the taste comes out on the thin side, though the carbonation is pleasantly tickling to the mouth. All in all, this is a well-executed lager with nothing to recommend it but the exotic location of its birth (West Bank, Palestine). I’d drink it again, but probably not buy it again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled @ GJBF Yokohama: Gold, light head and nice lacing. Nose of tinny light pale malt, some hop. The flavor is awful, some light metal and hop resin. Meh.

best beer you can find in the west bank. its a deep crisp refreshing pale lager, probably not very good, but tasty when you are hot and dirty in the middle east. visited this town on our tour of the west bank.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nothing particularly offensive about this one. Somewhat hoppy nose with a bit of alcohol and hay. Not much in the flavor dept bu some sweet grassy malt and corn. Finishes clean.
More boring then anything

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2011 Re-rate 8/5/11: Bottle at the brewery. A very fresh sample, seems a bit better than usual. 6/3/5/3/11=2.8
Bottle. Unlike most of the ratings here, this is for the original version brewed in the Palestinian territories, and not for the cotract-brewed one. Golden-colored beer with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, some noticeable nice hoppiness, and a bit of citrus in there as well. Sweet malt, some fruitiness and a bit of caramel in the flavor, with only very faint notes of the nice hoppiness of the aroma. Body is too thin. Overall an ok beer. 6/3/5/2/11=2.7
