Today's beer comes from Israel, an area known more for their hummus than their beer.  It comes in a 500mL blue can with 5% alcohol/vol. It has a lot of Hebrew on the label, so I could be missing a lot of info. There is what appears to be a best-before date on the bottom of the can, and if I read it correctly I'm well inside the window: April 13, 2012.

When I opened the bottle, there wasn't much aroma.  It smelled like a premium lager.  It poured a pale yellow colour, and formed a large head that bubbles away in a few minutes.  There were lots of large bubbles.  The aroma was still missing a lot of character.  No detectable hops or malt.

The first sip was fairly plain.  The beer was exceptionally soft in the mouth despite its high carbonation.  The flavour was subdued, but not horrible.  There was absolutely no aftertaste.  Honestly, there was nothing to write home about.  I would classify this beer as one of those "when you're in country X and there's nothing else to drink..." type beers.
