When I am in Israel, Gold Star is the beer I drink the most of. It normally available on tap in most bars.
Dark caramel with a light head.
Mildly hoppy with some malt
Delicious! If there were a beer I could serve to both BMC disciples and my friends who apreciate real beer, this would be that beer.
Not too heavy, not too light, just right.
I could easily drink 5 or 6 of these in a sitting.
Serving type: on-tap

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of dark malts and sweetness are present in the nose.
T: The taste similar to the smell and has some additional hints of toffee to go along with the dark malts and bits of sweetness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied but a little watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is a cut above Euro Dark Lagers and doesn't taste overly watered down, but lacks the depth of taste of Munich Dunkel Lagers.

Y'know, I sometimes wonder where and how my local, in person trader, tone77, comes up with some of the beers that he drops off for me. Israeli beer, this time! I love Israel, having been in Haifa several times, say no more. Cue up Siouxsie & the Banshees doing "Israel". My mother qualifies to be a Blue Star Mother, but thankfully not a Gold Star Mother. Enough random thoughts, let's drink a beer!
From the bottle: "Premium Beer"; "Our genuine taste since 1950".
My pour netted two fingers of rocky, fizzy, tawny head with moderate retention. Color was more towards a coppery amber (SRM = ~ 22) than I would expect from the style and with NE-quality clarity. Nose revealed one big malt bomb. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium and the taste reminded me of brown bread. I have written before about B&M brown bread, but this seems like what it would taste like in liquid form. Obviously, this was a very bready beer. Finish was semi-sweet with a lot of the fermentable sugars having been converted into alcohol. Impressive? Not so much. Cool as a novelty from Israel? Heck, yes!
