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.

angelkostvo (685) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 17, 2013
Orange color, clear with no head. Aroma of thyme, spearmint, herbs. Taste is a bit watery, sour and not good. Light body , flat carbonation, a bit oily texture. Interesting but too expensive for the quality.

Cuso (5050) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 29, 2012
Bottle from trade with Cunningham, many thanks. Amber colored beer with small off-white head. Malt, caramel, mint, chamomile and other herbs in aroma. Taste, sweet malt, caramel, herbs (thyme, chamomile and others), some fruitiness. Herb bitter finish. Very unusual, but tasty, moreish beer. I would like taste more beers from this brewery.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2012
0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Copper to amber color. Sweet spicy aroma with grassy thyme, eucalyptus and orange peel. Dryer flavor with plenty of thyme, grass and some biscuity notes in the background. Light to medium body. Thyme is on top and creates an impression of meat stew. Dominated by spices but in a pleasant way.

czar (4678) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
pours clear golden orange with a small white cap, little retention, no lacing. spicy malts but mostly loads of other spices - loads of aggressive thyme and pepper, sage, a certain leafiness, even some astringent black tea, faint fruity and lightly toasted malts. average to soft carbonation, light body - oily, decent grassy-herbal finish. unbalanced. some new styles are just meant to vanish... for good reasons.

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
0.33l bottle. Crystal clear dark golden in color, some floaters floating about and it has a medium sized light bubbly and lacing just off-white head. Om the nose it’s quite spicy alright. Hard to tear the spices apart, but I get Christmasy cinnamon and cloves mainly. Perhaps also some soft fennel seeds in here as well? Quite nice on the aroma. It has a soft oily to watery mouthfeel with a small bubbly average carbonation level. Light spicy in the taste also, melon zest and a nice soft bitterness. I feel the cumin and coriander dominates. More light cinnamon and cloves, perhaps also a tone of grassy chutney. That makes no sense but this is quite a strange brew. All in all, easy drinkin’ and absolutely an alright one. Almost like drinking my homemade kebab.. 21.09.2012

Diogène (1066) - Mirabel, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 21, 2012
Bière dorée et claire surmontée d’un léger voile blanc qui s’estompe rapidement. Au nez, on ne peut pas se tromper, la même odeur se retrouve dans ma cuisine lorsque nous préparons des mets libanais. Un mélange de sumac, de sauge, de menthe et de thym avec une légère présence d’alcool. En bouche, les épices prennent toute la place, surtout le sumac, la sauge et le thym, laissant une légère amertume en finale. On perçoit une certaine présence du malt et une légère touche de sucre, mais la finale est plutôt sèche et le corps est mince. C’est une expérience intéressante et une bière bien construite, mais ce n’est pas le type de bière que je boirais plus d’une fois.
