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.

Boutip (5060) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a medium size foamy head with minimal retention and some light lacing. Aroma of sumac and mint is incredibly powerful and maybe a tad too much for my own taste. Taste is also dominated by huge amounts of sumac and mint with a dry caramel malt base that is tame compared to the spice mix. Body is a bit light with medium carbonation. I could barely drink half of the bottle as the spice mix was way too rich for my own taste.

larsga (6621) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2012
Medium offwhite head. Clear coppery body. Interesting herbal, spicy aroma of cedar wood, cumin, and gooseberries. Dry herbal cumin and cedar wood taste with anise notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry minty cumin and sage aftertaste with cinnamon and cedar wood notes. Very interesting and surprisingly drinkable for such a heavy load of herbs. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

KnutAlbert (6364) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 21, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Slightly hazy amber. Light IPA, well balanced. Then a seducive blend of spices teleporting you to a Middle Eastern bazaar. Truly exotic. Long cardamum finish.

33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours clear, deep golden with a small white head. Nice smell of thyme as it is poured in the glass. Aroma of thyme, camomile, pale malt and hints of caramel and other herbs and spices. Reminds me of my visit to Jordan where thyme was used a lot. The thyme is quite dominating, but too much. Lightly sweet with a slightly dry and bitter finish. Well balanced both tastewise and aromawise. Easy to drink and surprisingly pleasant. Wouldn’t mind more of this!

Holmen1 (3281) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 17, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Flaske på Cardinal: herlig, spennende og kompleks aroma. Men smaken skuffer: liten munnfylde, kort og vandig ettersmak. Interessant, men dette blir en engangsforeteelse. Øl med pizzakrydder?

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Copper clear, beige head. Smells of spices, mainly thyme and sage, interesting, reminds me of food. Light to moderate sweet, some malt body, then the spices again, i think of italian food now. Medium bitter finish, resins. The added spice kills off most of the hops, but who cares! This is a special beer, not the average pale ale. I like this one quite alot
