Macabee lager beer - Israel - 23/8/11

The Low Down:

Beers from the Middle East are notoriously hit or miss, kind of like their peace talks, this one is both hit and miss. If Israeli politics were as bland as Macabee, then that joke wouldn't have worked very well.

I looked up where Netanya was when I couldn't really say anything about the beer other than "easy to drink but nothing remarkable". Netanya, where the beer is brewed, is easy to look at but nothing remarkable. WHY CAN’T ALL OF THE MIDDLE EAST BE LIKE THIS? </political rage out>

If nothing else, conflict makes it hard for me to source content for this blog.

Packaging: 8/10
A clever design with only the name and ABV in English.
Refreshment: 10/10
DAMN is this easy to drink. Exacting carbonation, my other half labelled it as "dangerous"
Flavour 2/10:
Nope it doesn't have that.
Alcohol Content: 6/10
5%. This could get very dangerous very quick.
Price: 6/10
$6 fairly reasonable given how hard it is to find here.
Total: 32/50

This is the Hebrew answer to Pabst Blue Ribbon. Drink it on Instagram. I can easily see this becoming the go-to beer for Rohypnol predators, given that girls will actually drink it.
