This brew is another of the fine beers carried at the Beer Bazaar in the Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem. (Click here https://beerbazaar.co.il for a link to their beer menu). Although the bottle did not give much of an indication about the style of the beer, I thought that it was cool that there was a beer brewed in the Negev, so I added it to my six pack at the store.
The Oasis poured a darker orange than I expected, but the flavor was pretty close to American Blonde Ales. There was a bit of malt and some citrus, but the overall hop flavor was pretty subdued. I In some ways this beer reminded me of the Layla brew which was produced by a defunct brewery in Ashkelon. I would not mind trying this again if it ever makes it to the US.
