look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Tuborg beer produced in Israel under license.

Presentation- 330 ml dark brown glass bottle with freshness date on rear label

A- Large foamy white head which quickly shrinks down. The beer pours a clear medium amber with streams of small bubbles constantly flowing.

S- Malty, hops, faint yeast, sweet. Over all the smell comes through weakly.

T- Malty, some hops, some roasted nuts, Medicinal, sweet at first with a bitter finish.

M- Smooth light bodied and a lot of carbonation.

D- One is enough for me. Maybe its not great, but, not bad either.

Had many times while in Israel as you can find it pretty much everywhere.

Big creamy 1 finger head fades slowly decent lacing, crystal clear tan colored.

Nose light toasty brown malts, hint of amber malt, light crisp fruity lager, but light cheap lager aromas.

Taste brings more toasty brown malts and syrupy extract flavors, hint of grassy hops just a hint. Light fruity lager flavors and slightly cheap lager flavor again. Crisp dry lager finish.

Mouth is med to slightly lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad but nothing special. Of my experience so far in Israel (that would be completely smashed later) it's one of the better beers, but still seems cheaply made. Drinkable, esp for most of the other offerings at most random bars and stores, but not great.
