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.

Holmen1 (2790) - 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

Sigmund (5319) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2012
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.3%. Deep golden colour, low white head. Fairly moderate aroma of chamomile and various spices of the Middle East. The flavour is distinctly spicy, interesting and complex (including a couple spices I’ve never even heard of) , while the ordinary pale ale background is less remarkable. A moderately spicy burn in the finish.

TheJestersBeer (2138) - SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a deep gold, with a thin white head. Spicy, herbal aroma, malt, sesame seed, freshly baked bread, dried thyme leaves, sage. Dry, light bodied, low bitterness, low CO2. Spicy, slightly salty (?) taste, malt, dough, sage, thyme, hops, some citrus and yeast. Feels a bit off. (2012-06-25)

probstblueribbon (3067) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2012
330 ml bottle from Lubiere, served cold in a tulip glass. 10AU12.

App.: Clear amber with a so-so head. Aroma: An odd mix of macro lager grain/cereal and strong spiciness, peppery, high (asephotida), a touch of caramel/toffee, minerals, odd. Palate: Medium body, somewhat prickly/fine effervescence. Flav.: Asephotida/hing, peppery, maybe a hint of cardamon, a touch of British caramel/toffee, weird, tea?, pepper, no idea; dry with limited bitterness and an oddly spicy, grainy finish.

This isn’t working.

CarlJonas (218) - Linköping, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2012
Copper coloured, off white head. Aroma is packed with exotic spices but also reminds of canned pasta in tomato sauce. The flavour is dominated by the spices but there is a hint of bitterness. Medium carbonation. To much spices for me but quite interesting.

NosirIwont (2006) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale golden with an off-white head. Decent lacing. Citrusy hop aroma with notes of spice, mostly thyme; has sort of bread stick feel to it. A bit weird in a beer, but kind of works. Flavour is spices on a hoppy background; again with thyme being the dominant one, and with that subsequent bread stick feel. Light metallic overtone. Tart, bitter finish with thyme, a light alcohol burn and a lingering mild grassy note. Overall so-so; the beer itself is decent enough, and the spices are interesting and okay balanced, but not really doing anything for me. 30.07.12.
