2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle brown, 500 ml
Appearance: Head is rocky, snowy white, medium in size, quite quickly decreasing, leaves some traces of lacing, carbonation of the body is medium and generally beer decarbonates, body is strawy yellow and pale, perfectly clear in texture.
Aroma: Yeasty, alcoholic, chalky but not as much as other German Pilseners, nice aromatic hoppy nose but slightly alcoholic, aroma is rather gentle, mild and nice, some pure clean malty base hidden under the aromatic hoppyness.
Flavour: Classic good quality Pilsener, surprisingly similar to many Bohemian Pilseners, taking into consideration its maltyness, nice sharp hoppyness on palate and aromatic hoppy nose, definitely tilting towards bitterness, finish duration is medium to long in its bitterness.
Palate: Body is light, texture is dry, carbonation on palate is medium, finish feel is very dry, bitter from sharp hoppyness.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Golden with a nice, white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavour is a bit thin, and it has light notes of straw, malt and a refreshing, slightly dry bitterness. It’s quenching, wet & cold and offends no one.

Draught (from the new self-cooling keg) sample at a beer festival in kibbutz Ma’abarot, May ’08. Straw color. Hoppy, quite grassy aroma. Sweetish flavor with malt and bread and a bitter hoppy finish. Rather light-bodied. Not bad.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Very much very fine foam. Starts very mild, but not boring. Good use of hops, well balanced finish. Good beer!

Bottle. Pale golden colour with a slight white head. A pretty good Euro-lager with a sweet malt and floral hop aroma, and slightly sweet flavour.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very clear yellow beer. Not gold but light yellow. Medium head, bubbly with a bit of froth and light lacing. A pleasant but maybe soapy yeast aroma. Light on taste and Im still picking up the soapiness? After a few drinks I start getting into more of the bitter. All in all, not a horrible beer, but not one I will pay to drink again.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Clear, golden beer with a white head. The nose was quite weak, containing of grain, hay and hops. Quite weak flavor as well, grainy and hoppy, but not so much bitterness until the end, which is crisp and bitter. Medium, quite fizzy mouthfeel. A clean and refreshing beer, but a bit anonymous.
