Goldstar Dark Lager


Goldstar Lager

My oldest daughter sent me some beers from around the world (“you drink too much of that San Diego beer daddy) for Father’s Day. Figured I’d start in the Middle East and work my way west from there.

This one is Goldstar, a dark lager from Tempo Beverage in Netanya, Israel (40% owned by Heineken). A light body, but super maltly (almost like drinking fresh wort) with little to no hop profile in either the aroma or flavor. Not bad. Sort of reminds me of some of the German-inspired dark lagers you can get down in Mexico. Probably very good served ice cold on hot day.

So, what do you think ?
