Straw colour. No head. Bit of skunky soured hop. Spicy character with a bland doughy pale malt underpinning. Quite fizzy. Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2009
Can via Per. Bright yellow-gold with scattered spittle head. Aroma is sweet and simple. Can has prevented any substantial problems but it’s still an uninspired corn flake aroma. Slick mouthfeel. Sweet, slightly syrupy. Strange flavors, almost like chick peas. Does not finish clean and yet remains a "not bad." daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Can from Oakes and Beershine. Thanks!! Pale gold color. Very malty aroma with not much else. Flavor is watery and very malty. Not good. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2009

Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is malts, some rubber and mild notes of malts. Flavour is quite grassy with quite sweetish malty notes. Mild flowery hops as well. Earthy. Quite clean, but also boring.
I was hoping to like this beer, after all Philadelphia is the ancient name of my new stomping grounds here in Amman Jordan. However, like most pale lagers this was a disappointment. Pours a pale yellow with a quickly disappearing fizzy head. A flat and slightly metallic nose. Like most pale lagers a light bodied carbonated mouthfeel predominates. The taste while super cold has a neutral flavor with a slight hint of grains. As it warms,more breadiness and a bit of skunk develop. Not bad for the price and the location too bad people don’t seem to drink stouts or porters here.

Canned in Je’rash. Clear pale golden, small head. Fruity and lightly grassy. Dryish and light bodied. freshenng and flawless, rather crisp and easy going. Finishes with light-medium bitteress. A well made inoffensive lager. DSG (15403) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 18, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2008 Can. Thanks David K for bringing me this beer. Clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is quite clean with a bit of malt and a bit of graininess and some hoppy hints. Sweetish flavor with some malt and bready hints and finishes mildly bitter with light hops and very faint metallic notes. Quite light-bodied with a rather crisp mouthfeel. Pretty strong carbonation, but still not too carbonated. I wouldn’t say it’s a great beer, but it’s definitely drinkable, and to my surprise it’s better than all Israeli macro-lagers, and it’s actually one of the better Pale Lagers I’ve had so far. I’m a bit disappointed than I didn’t share it with other people because this is probably the best Jordanian beer and it only has 3 ratings now including mine. tomciccateri (1035) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUN 23, 2008
500ml can in Amman (also sold at the gift shop at Jurash). Clear pale straw color with a white head that fades fast. Very slight hoppy aroma. Light body, well-carbonated but not overly so. Even sweet/dry pale malt flavor. Very slight late pale malt sweetness and very slight hop flavor. Nothing offensive.
Can labeled 5%, dated (apparently, 3/3/09, and "ingredients: water, malt, CO2, and hops)
