3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle sampled @ Cardinal. Unclear golden body with a white head. Strange and complex aroma, mainly from not so frequented used spices in beer brewing, oregano is very easy recognized. Flavor is rather light malty with focus on the spices, again oregano is obvious. Maybe oregano not to be the strongest aroma, but for me the one easiest to detect. Medium body and aftertaste with the same spices as the rest. Totally drinkable and fun to taste, but more like an experiment maybe.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazed amber ale with a thin mocha head. In aroma, light caramel malt with light grassy herbs, faint sumac. In mouth, a good caramel malt followed immediately by zaatar bread, lemon sumac, a bit thin but enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear oddly red-orangish amber color with a thin fizzy white head. Fair head retention. Aroma of herbal notes, heavy spice definitely reminiscent of Middle Eastern cuisine. Sage, basil. Some earthy notes. Interesting. The taste is similar... heavy spice, earthy notes, pale malts. Medium bodied, quite interesting. May not be everyone’s cup of tea, but I like it!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
a not-so-subtle mint/menthol note in the nose. nice clear medium amber color, reasonable off white head. minty/menthol flavor, very assertive. grassy quality. slight sweetness, like stevia, in finish. i couldn’t drink more than one of these -- the mint/menthol/spices aren’t really my thing.
