10’000 years in the making, the LPA marks the return home for beer. From the land where beer and human civilisation were born, comes a new brew that is a marriage between Western brewing tradition, Eastern complexities, and a sublime expression of the Lebanese Renaissance. It was inspired straight from the Lebanese spice markets. For decades there has been little choice in the diversity of Lebanese beers. This beer provides an alternative for the Lebanese population, with ingredients such as za’atar, sumac, mint, sage, anise, and chamomile. The use of such herbs and spices makes this distinctive craft brew truly Lebanese.

Bottle. Pours a light amber with minimal white head. Aroma of italian spices and caramel. Taste is light sweet. Caramel with basil and other cooking spices. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Enjoyable but nothing super special.

Skinnyviking (8645) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2013
Bottle. Low fluffy white lasting head. Hazy yellow body. Mild fruity herbal aroma that is quite difficult to pinpoint. Mild malt hops flavor with herbal notes. Low carbonation, long sweet finish.

Outstanding. Lucky enough to run into the brewer Mazen Hajjar at the Archive Beer boutique in Brisbane & sampled several of his beers. My companion's first words were "it smells like food" - and indeed it does - think thyme, sage, mint - or the aroma of an oregano-laden margarita pizza. This gives way to a deliciously balanced dry ale, amber in colour and complex in flavour with an agreeable dry finish.

Honestly this is a heck of abeer, dark, clear brownish gold pour. Smell of lemon, chamomile, and sage. Flavor is herbal and almost savory, sumac and sage dominate. Cant even tell there is mint or anise in here they blend in marvelously.

Bottle. Some definite spice / clove aroma. A bit thin for my taste and the anise was ehhh, but it was ok and the mint finish was interesting.

Foxbush (1763) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2013
12 oz bottle This is my first Lebanese beer. The ale poured a clear amber color with almost no head only a white collar. The aroma was mint like. The taste was much more complex with citrus peel, mint, hops and grass. The ale was somewhat watery with soft carbonation. The finish was also complex with mint and spices letf as an aftertaste.

Pours golden yellow with a moderate white top. Aroma is sweet spice that is sharp and sweet bready malts. Taste is odd, almost a honey and other spices dominate the palate with a nice base malt to round it out. The spices though just throw me off too much.

HoppyBudgie (833) - SOLA, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2013
Pours a golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty spicy herbal aroma. Malty spicy herbal chamomile and sage flavor. Not so found of the spices in this. Reminds me of a Italian/Turkish Pizza restaurant
