3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle brought back from Lebanon by my cousin. Mostly clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma is corn, grass, a little metal. Taste is mild-medium bitter, medium sweet, with an odd distinct tobacco flavor, like someone ashed a cigar into the kettle. Finish is dry with that same tobacco taste lingering. Despite that, it’s actually not bad and I would potentially drink this again.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle at the Bread Republic in Beirut, Lebanon. Pours a deep amber color with a full off white lasting head. Aroma is a malt with spices, some hops. Taste is subdued for a bitter and quite nice. Palate is dry. Not my style but a nice well made brew all the same.
