2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: bread and cereal malts, some hay and caramel. Appearance: light clear gold, medium frothy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitter continue, getting slightly dry, malty notes of bread and grains in general. Overall: a very mediocre Lager/Helles, nothing to write long stories about. Bottle from Sam’s Beverage, Beirut.

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

I’m not a big lager fan but this is better than the average lager. I also give it points because there can’t be too many good brewers in the middle east. Smooth and a little malty.
