2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden. Remarkably clear. Sweet and malty aroma. Fairly bland and slightly sweet taste. I’m willing to give this brewery another chance, if only to have a Lebanese beer in my glass.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33cl. Clear medium amber, small foamy off-white head, dissipates quickly, not so much lacing; aroma moderate malty, grainy, thyme, oregano, lime, hay; moderate sweet and bitter, herbal and spicy notes; medium texture, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation, finish is dry bitter with lingering herbal and spicy presence; overall not a helles as it should be, but hey quite a surprise that such an interesting and special beer can be made in the Middle-East and moreover very drinkable. Not everything is hopeless in the region!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, pours light yellow/golden, impeccably clear. Short lived pure white head with surprisingly large bubbles. Aroma of compost that has been urinated on within the past week, faint hint of fresh cut grass, some green apple. Very sweet for a lager, some grassiness, but the taste of vomit that comes quickly after dominates and lingers for quite some time. Leaves a copper/aluminum taste for a while also. One of the worst beers I’ve had in a while. Did not finish.
