COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
10í000 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 zaíatar, sumac, mint, sage, anise, and chamomile. The use of such herbs and spices makes this distinctive craft brew truly Lebanese.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with fine white head. Aroma is pine, honey, mint, spices. Flavor is malty, spicy and a bit of hops. Quite nice and very original.

Joakgust (1146) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2013
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.

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.

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2013
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.

Leighton (14430) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2013
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 doesnít completely work.

obguthr (4689) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
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.

oh6gdx (22997) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 26, 2013
Bottled (Thanks Papsoe!). Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma is pizzaspices, mild sweet malts as well as some mild grassy notes. Flavour is spices, some spices and even more spices. Also mild herbs. Very oregano like aftertaste.

davidm (1979) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from Slowbeer. Nice, different beer. Aromas of spice, wet leaves, and other herbs. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

blankboy (6633) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle [330ml] shared with HogTownHarry & biegaman -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a slightly hazy orange with a small diminishing bubbly off-white head. Aroma of herbs and tomatoes (Iím sure itís likely sage or some other herb though). Flavour of herbs and malt, itís almost got a tomato sauce thing going, along with some hops. A tad watery. Average bodied. Itís O.K. but itís not what Iím looking for in a Pale Ale.

HogTownHarry (6302) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
330ml bottle c/o "B" - shared with blankboy and biegaman. Clear amberish gold, small head. Smells and tastes mostly like thyme and sage - pungent - simple, ultimately boring. Light body, mild carbonation, pungent aftertaste but ultimately not much of anything
