330 ml bottle. BB 08/03/14. From Tomer. תודה
Dark reddish brown colour with a medium-sized foamy light tan head.
Pine, resin, yeast, malt, bitterness, hops and sweetness in the aroma. Like it’s not quite ready. Dark hops, malt and moderate bitterness in the flavour. A bit homebrewy.

Israeli tick! Bottle, shared by Leighton. Cheers, fella. The pour’s deep amber with a small head. The aroma’s strawberry, hints of caramel, forest fruits. Light notes of old grass cuttings. The taste is somewhat raggedy straw, red berry, slight hop bitterness. Robust malt profile. Somewhat faded flavors. Medium body, soft carbonation. Overall, pretty forgettable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 08/3/14, courtesy of rosenbergh, 20140315) The beer poured deep brown and clear. Its head was mediums sized, white and it lasted long. Aroma had pine, malts and grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbobation. Flavours were malts, sweetness, pine, fruitiness and low bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and mildly bitter. The aroma was promising even though it showed some characteristics of a beer that hasn’t finished its fermentation. The taste was too weak.
