2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very interesting taste in this beer. The flavor reminds me of a middle eastern spice. Must be the sage because it’s sort of overpowering. Amber color and a thin white head makes this distinguishable from the standard swill that smaller nations tend to produce.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle. Golden with one finger head. Fairly light base with medium dull hops and some odd spicing that doesn’t really fit. I like the idea of using middle eastern spicing in a beer, but the execution here didn’t work for me.

A very different yet quite drinkable. Heavy bread aromas and yeasty flavours. Worth trying at least once.

Grass, spice, ginger, and mint in the aroma. Flavor is mild, sweet, and flowery. Spice and mint in the finish. Different and better than I expected.

Didnt enjoy this. What little malt flavor there is here is so burried in heaps of spices and various other perfume lazed "things", you forget this is a beer. If they were going for a Kasbah of "anything Middle Eastern" then I suppose they manged it.
