Bad.

Ronen HaBeera HaMekhoeret India Pale Ale
Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy amber color. A bit buttery and chalky, too much bread and caramel for an IPA, and resiny hops; kind of hoppy Amber Ale, chaotic but not bad.

Emek Ha’Ela Belgian Tripel
Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy blond color, almost no head. Strange aroma, burnt plastic, coriander, and very light fruity esters. Good body strength; the flavor is based on some cloying American Triple yeast, it’s moderately sweet, lightly spicy, it has some chemicals; low bitterness.
Not very good.

Ronen HaKeha HaMerusha’at Dark Ale
330ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours an opaque brown with a small off-white head. Nose is light chocolate and some toasted malt. Flavour is off, weird burnt plastic character with a maltyness. I’m pretty sure this is infected.

Ronen HaKeha HaMerusha’at Dark Ale
Medium chestnut with a thin head. The aroma is not happening...just sort of musty, brown malts but nothing really rocking. Thin, infected...sort of dirt-tasting. Sorry, this just didn’t work out.

330ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours a dark amber brown colour with a small white head. Nose is lightly pine, and caramel malt. Flavour is light sweet caramel, bitter pine, with a grapefruit pith finish. The overall mouthfeel has a somewhat oily feel to it.

Ronen HaKeha HaMerusha’at Dark Ale
330mL bottle, pours a deep dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out plastic and burnt rubber, light dry cocoa and toasted malt. Flavour is nasty, with all sorts of burnt rubber, plastic and band-aid notes that drown out anything else that might be present underneath. Infected and not drinkable.

Ronen HaBeera HaMekhoeret India Pale Ale
Cloudy, some orangey hop nose, with a bit of yeastiness. Bitter, yeasty, a touch of citrusy hop brightness. OK, bit too yeasty but overall this isn’t bad.

Ronen HaBeera HaMekhoeret India Pale Ale
330mL bottle, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very fruity, with some red fruits, with faded resinous hops, and bready caramel malt. Flavour is sharp on the hoppy astringency, with resinous hops, some pine, moderate red fruitiness character, and dry biscuity malt. Finishes with a pleasant hoppy astringency. Decent.

Emek Ha’Ela Belgian Tripel
Hazy and pale. Has a honeyish aroma, with a fair bit of alcohol, and some mild plastic esters, Quite sweet, and fairly plasticy, though it still maintains some dryness, notably from the alcohol. Passable, though that’s about it.

Emek Ha’Ela Belgian Tripel
330mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma is similar, with candied sugar, some bubblegum and Belgian yeast. Flavour is very authentic but better than many sweet North American versions, with candied sugar, fruity esters, and Belgian yeast. Floral, fruity finish, with medium sweetness. Nothing particularly complex, but it works decently.

Emek Ha’Ela Blond Ale
Hazy, light tan. This has a heavy yeasty note, both on the nose and on the palate. Not much in the way of hop. Just a lot of yeastiness, and there’s not a whole lot of malt character either, maybe some light breadiness.

Emek Ha’Ela Blond Ale
330mL bottle, pours a hazy golden with almost no head. Nose is somewhat sweet, with cereal malt sweetness and light straw. Flavour is along the same lines, with cereal malt, a little straw, and some biscuity notes. A little cardboardy, with a rather lifeless body. Lame stuff.

Ronen HaKeha HaMerusha’at Dark Ale
12 oz. bottle from DSG. Thanks Barak! It pours very dark brown, almost back with a thin ring of light tan foam. The aroma is pretty estery with some toast, light notes of cocoa and some pear, apple and plum notes. Maybe a bit nutty too. The flavor is also pretty fruity and kind of tart on the palate with some dark toast, ash, and some light notes of fusel alcohols. Finishes pretty dirty. Not a fan.
