Surprisingly good dark lager that seems to be one of the country's most widely available beers. Not as watery as American lagers. Will definitely drink again!

Pours a clear, dark gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of sweet malt, pale malt, hint of yeast, hint of caramel malt, and slight adjunct. Mouth feel is sharp and clean, with an average carbonation level. Fits the style of a Munich Dunkel Lager. Tastes of adjunct, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of hop, hint of caramel malt, and slight metallic notes. Overall, weak appearance, decent blend, but aroma and body dominated by adjunct.

This is a top Israeli beer . Drank it couple of times.
It is a lager with a reach taste like ale .
The resamblance in taste is to the hoegaarden. It is the lager mate of the hoegaarden. Hoegarden has more complicated aroma but the resamblance in taste is the .
I think Gold star is one of the best lagers outthere.
As hoegaarden is one of the best ale outthere .
If you"ll test hoegaarden snd Goldstar side by side you will feel the resamblance.
To be like hoegaarden you must be a very good beer.

Appearance - pours amber golden into a dimpled beer mug, absence of any head or lacing, looks very thin. Aroma - struggling to get anything here, yeasty?? Taste - fairly bland, the most noticeable thing here is the mouthfeel (astringent) Mouthfeel - astringent l but not overly so for my liking overall - lacking of any sort of taste / smell, mouthfeel is appreciable. I compare this to other mass brewers, overall not bad but definitely not memorable.

3/7/15 (Bottle) - Very thin pour, no head, slightly rust coloured brown with nominal carbonation, Aroma is of nutty malt and grass, and an earthy yeast. Very little texture or taste, lightly bitter. Tasted a bit skunky and flat. Disappointing.

Pours a clear orange-brown with a foamy beige head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toast, caramel, and nut aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet caramel and fruit flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of toast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable, but it's pretty sweet and unmemorable to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a golden, slightly dark orange, with a quarter inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Doesn't smell like a whole lot, some fruity lager yeast, a bit of caramel, and that's it.

This honestly just doesn't taste that good. It seems slightly skunky, with a weird soapy aftertaste, and a medicinal aspect. There's some caramel and toffee, but it's not strong enough to drown out the other bad flavors.

This is weirdly slick and oily, not really refreshing, with a moderate level of carbonation.

Hey it's a beer from Israel, so that's cool- but it's definitely not a good one.

Pours clear with a medium-dark copper color. Average head. This beer is smooth with a malty, sweet flavor.
