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.

Bierkrug (2133) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, - 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.

A very different yet quite drinkable. Heavy bread aromas and yeasty flavours. Worth trying at least once.

annunz123 (853) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Grass, spice, ginger, and mint in the aroma. Flavor is mild, sweet, and flowery. Spice and mint in the finish. Different and better than I expected.

AdiBeer (931) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2014
Aroma: floral hops, hay, herbs, black tea?. Appearance: clear dark golf/amber, medium frothy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: intense floral hops, bitters continue, not getting too strong, some spices and herbs. Overall: interesting beer, but the aroma is not my thing. Bottle from Sam’s Beverage, Beirut.

33 cl. bottle at Lebanese Taverna, Baltimore. Pours clear copper-amber with a ring of bubbles. Nose is honey, toasted grain, dry grass and metal; almost lagerish. Tastes of flowery honey and grape bubblegum. Finish has dry grass, bitter herbal mix and a bit of resin. Medium body has medium carbonation and a nice balance.

Bov (9371) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2014
courtesy of Antonio Rey - cloudy amber-orange beer with no head retention; decently herbal notes of sage and chamomile; moderate malt backbone, light sticky and pretty bitter; dry and with a long aftertaste of mint, tea and chamomile - interesting

Splitenz (329) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2014
Didnt enjoy this. What little malt flavor there is here is so burried in heaps of spices and various other perfume lazed "things", you forget this is a beer. If they were going for a Kasbah of "anything Middle Eastern" then I suppose they manged it.

PapaVillum (406) - Valby, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2014
330 ml, flaske, 6,3 % ABV, nydt på Restaurant Day på Helgesvej på Frederiksberg, 17. maj 2014. Mørkegul/mørk gylden Pale Ale med minimal hvid skumtop. Duft af humle og ret tydelig noter af middeløstlige krydderier. Smagen er ligeså meget krydret og med krydderier, jeg ikke har smagt i en øl før. Efter etiketten at dømme er der også timian, salvie, camomille, anis og mynte i. Smagen starter med maltbitterheden og dernæst kommer krydderierne snigende og giver en særlig krydret smag. Medium indhold af kuldioxid. Meget anderledes øl, som nok kræver en del tilvænning.

Bottle pour. Clean gold with small head in glass. Strange nose. Sun dried tomatoes sun chips, mint. Lots of red vegetables. Taste is ... interesting. A middle east potpourri of herbs. A small malt backbone reminds that, yes, this is beer. More vegetables. Strange. People like this?
