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.

Brave and interesting. For the first few gulps I loved the impressively strong taste of thyme but then the novelty faded and I would have preferred the beer without it. Other than the spices the beer is smooth with a slightly sweet malt and delicate hops. Interesting. Worth a try. But probably not one I’ll come back to.

Koelschtrinker (10676) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
Bitterer und deutlich gewürziger Antrunk. Etwas herb, die Gewürze lassen das Bier trocken erscheinen. Herb würziger Mittelteil, zum Ende auch malzig. 8/8/7/8/11/8

Narnad (1462) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a clean amber color with a low, white, quick fading head. Aroma has a tone of herbal nose to it. Smells like the pizza beer fad of the early 2000s with a strong sage and oregano-ish herbal nose. Not much else comes through the herbal presence. Flavor has a very strong herbal flavor with a very light note of pepper at the end. Body is light with a low amount of fizz. Overall this a blah beer. The herbal flavor this brew has is not one I would consider a good choice for a brew. Definite drain pour here.

This is equal parts good and weird. Sometimes you get a beer that is bad and weird (Dogfish Midas Touch I’m looking in your direction), but this one is good and weird. Says it has thyme, sumac, camomile, sage, anise and mint... kinda reminds us of those rosemary flavoured chips you can buy in some places. Fun to try, but not something I’d regularly drink.

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Deep golden, brown color, good off-white head. Strong herbal aroma, wood (pencil), berries in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Lots of herbs (oregano, tarragon etc) in the flavor. Some fruity hoppyness. Too much spices to be enjoyable.

Bottle from Barracuda Beach Resort. I was initially very sceptical and started judging the book on its cover. Pours like a standard pale ale, but with lots of spice aromas, sage, basil, even cardamon and some faint citrus. Backed up with a light bitterness and only mild fizz, with a briefly lingering finish. Not everybodys taste, but hats off to a unique brew.

Sevenlee (1332) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours a clear orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, toastiness and spices. Taste is light to medium sweet leading to a spicy finish. Not bad.
