COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 19, 2012
330 ml bottle. Amber and crystal clear. Small off-white fine head. Nice balanced herbal aroma with notes of mint and thyme. Soft malty flavours mixed with delicate herbs. Very drinkable. Some bitterness in the finish. Light and interestingly complex at the same time. Excellent.

Tjoxen (173) - SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2012
Pours clear copper, small white head. Aroma of "herbs de provance". I control smelled the can of herbs used for cooking and its like the same! Taste of herbs. Dry and bitter. This beer is unique and i dont know if i like it or not.

daje (2648) - NORWAY - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle from Vika, enjoyed october 5th 2012. Clear golden body, small white head. Aroma is interesting, hoppy and herbal, dominated by thyme whichc works a lot better than it may sound. Taste is sweetened by caramel, and again the thyme shines through accompanied by camomila. A very different take on a pale ale, with a nice twist.

Bierkrug (2132) - - OCT 10, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2012 330 ml Bottle picked up at the brewery itself in Beirut. What a difference between the beer here and the one I had in town that was probaly not stored correctly. Pours a murky brown color with a soft full long lasting huge white head. The aroma of the beer hits you quickly. It has many spices in it with some aniseed coming out the strongest. Smells much like an aniseed bread. Taste is much the same with some more spices coming through. Not a huge fan of style but it is "truly Lebanese" and a great beer.

Boutip (5133) - 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.

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - OCT 5, 2012
Botella. Unclear golden, white head. Aroma of citrus fruity hops with spice/herbs. Ok mouthfeel. Fruity citrus hoppy spiced malty like flavour, sweet, ok bitterness. strange pale ale but nice to try.

larsga (6676) - 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 (6377) - 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.

visionthing (3526) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 19, 2012
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!
