2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a stemmed glass. ABV 5.2%. New country tick.
Pours a plae golden yellow beer, with something more than one finger of white head, quite thick, with good retention. Medium lacing left on the glass. Slow activity in it.
Aroma of malts, a bit dirty. Some hay too, not very appealing but not that bad either.
Taste is sweet, lots of malts, medicinal alcohol, grass. It becomes bitter on the aftertaste though, with good duration.
Medium thin body, low carbonation. Nice dryness on the palate.
Overall good as long as it was cold, but nothing extra ordinary.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, thnx to Tomer, cheers man. Pours a clear golden beer with a small, white head on top. Aroma is skunked, caramel and wet dogs. Flavor is really medium sweet, yeasty and funky in a bad way. Flavor has a slightly infected touch in the finish.. Not so good in my humble opinion. It’s just a bit off, buttery and skunked.

Pours golden color with a small white head. Aroma has hints of malt and grain. Flavor is pretty much the same with some bitterness. Low carbonation and light bodied. I can say that was a surprise!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle from Beer Market, Tel Aviv, July 2013. (my first one from Palestine)
Clear golden with a white head. The aroma was a bit stale with boiled vegetables and bread. Similar taste and some notes of metal and corn. Not a tasty one.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle pour at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Weird sourish nose. Clear light straw color. Foul harsh flavors, like insecticide. Light body. Something is seriously off with this beer. Tastes like a bad wine + beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at the GJBF Osaka. The first beer of the day. It pours a classic gold color with a decent aroma. The flavor is a blond ale but slightly more grainy than I am used to. Decent but kind of average.
