Clear yellow with small lacing white foam head. Aroma is barley. Tastes quite sweet for an ale, likewise aftertaste. Disappointing. (Kemmel 201407)

eRock_2013 (350) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2014
I believe this is Taybeh’s flagship beer, a respectable golden ale that drinks more like a lager. Easy to find on draft and bottled throughout Jerusalem, usually the only micro-brew available. Pours a full golden color with good head and lacing. Aroma is plain but fresh, malty with cereal grain and some noble hop accents. Taste is good but a little weaker than Taybeh’s other brews, pale malt with hoppy bitterness. The bitterness is firm yet well balanced, more substance than average pale lagers. Very smooth and enjoyable texture, but then the finish is a bit unpleasant, sticks around with a funky bready aftertaste. Better if you let it warm up a bit and not drink ice cold as it is commonly served here. On the whole, this is a decent drinkable beer, although Taybeh’s other offerings are recommended over this one.

Fint utseende. Skuffende og tam smak. Munnfølelsen er mildt sagt ikke tilstedeværende.

Zarkam (536) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 5, 2014
Based on notes from 040314. 330ml bottle from somewhere in Betlehem, Clear sparkling medium yellow hue, small mostly vanishing frothy white head, fair lacing. Aroma of moderate malts with notes of white bread, cereal, caramel and peach, moderate perfumy hops. Taste is initially light bittersweet and moderately acidic, turning into a moderately bitter finish with an astringent feel. Light to medium body, dry texture, lively carbonation. Was expecting nothing interesting but surprised positively, somewhat kölsch-like actually and even somewhat complex yet refreshing at the same time.

Bottle. Clear golden with a small, rapidly disappearing head. Aroma -grainy, malty, a bit skunky and metallic. Taste - sweet malts, light metallic off-flavors, pretty bland. Light-bodied, drinkable on a hot day, but not particularly good.
