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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Simple nose, earthy, grassy, floral hops, bread, some caramel. Clear orange-gold with a quickly fading white head. Dry, somewhat crisp in the attack, clean flavors reflecting the aroma. Light, a little bit too yeasty to be called refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (which was probably older than ideal). Not much to speak of really, I found it pretty bland and standard. Still drinkable though

A dull lager, sweet taste of vegetables. Couldn’t find any cascade...
