3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours amber with an off-white head. Aroma of light hops, spices, and pale and caramel malts. Flavor the same, with the spices not really adding to this beer. Average texture. Interesting but not the best.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Babajan, April 2013. (my first one from Lebanon)
Clear amber with a small head. Aroma of oregano, herbs, toffee, some honey, malt and cardboard. About the same in the weak taste. The finish was on the sweet side. Unbalanced and odd.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 33cl - Clear amber beer with a non existant head. Aroma is spicy with notes of honey, camomille, oriental spices and caramel. Flavor is spicy with notes of oriental spices, earthy hops, bread and nuts. Not a good beer but definitely interesting. One or two too many spices to really pick out anything in the flavor.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
The description is spot on. If you enjoy the anise and other herbs and spices, this may be for you. I was not a big fan.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A rather interesting beer for sure, but not something I would market as a pale ale styled beer. Smells a lot like pizza, and tastes like a meal in a way. Loaded with a very generous amount of savory herbs and spices, with notes of thyme, sage, and bitterness due to hops. A well crafted beer, but certainly not for everyone.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in NYC. Pours clear gold with a small, foamy head. Lots of herbs in the nose, like basil and thyme. Light sweet flavor, some spruce, further, herbs, hints of cool mint. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation, light sweet finish, further wacky herbs, light bitterness. Interesting but doesn’t completely work.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bready and spicy aroma of cumin, caraway, pencill shavings and oddly enough, stove top stuffing. Clear amber, medium head. Pencil shavings are more pronounced on the palate, but cumin is also easily detected, especially in the finish. Medium body. Not true to style, but neat. Very unique, rather enjoyable, and probably fun to pair with food.
