decent pilsner, but really not much body or flavour to it. a little on the lemony side, which was nice, since I had it in a heat wave a couple years ago, nevertheless I’m not going back

Serving: 12 oz. bottle.
I figured I would give this a go while dining at a Lebanese restaurant. I wish I hadn’t. I knew I was in trouble when the green bottle showed up. It pours a pale yellow with a small, foamy white head. The nose is skunky with notes of grain and corn. The flavor is a watery mix of vegetal grain and corn. Light bodied with a short, bitter finish. Dreadful.

Refreshing. Watery. Medium carbonation. Little flavor. Slight saaz hops on the finish. More flavor in a Coors light. Pale yellow color. Slight hop aroma.

Mora2000 (5650) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAY 28, 2010
This is my first beer from Lebanon. The beer pours a clear macro yellow with a white head. The aroma is strong corn. The flavor is corn, bready malt, hops and some light sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A pretty basic macro lager/German pilsner that doesn’t have much to offer.

Vaiz (3325) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2010
Bottle at home, thanks dEnk! Clear deep golden color with a thin white head. Extremely skunked aroma (green bottle...), but I once again recognize I don’t care. It still reminds me of a sunny day at a hot foreign beach and this supposedly awful smell brings a smile to my face. Flavor is watery grainy, slightly sweet with some unfermented grains still in there and a bit of corn syrup. Not too good, but not still easy drinkable. Slightly bitter in the finish and medium carbonation.

dEnk (3775) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2010
Bottle. Golden brown pour, medium off white head. Aroma of grains, malt and very faint hop. Flavour is watery malt and grains, not sweet, not bitter. Too much lawnmower.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with white fizzy head. Aroma of grain, a light hop spice, light malt back bone.....Flavor isn’t much different. Mouth feel is light body and over carbonated. Overall, just seems like another clone of another basic pilsner.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 Can from Auchan, Marne La Vallee, France.
Pours a decent yellow with a nice white head. Aroma is diluted apple juice and faint corn malt. Flavor is watery apple juice with a hint of woody corn in the finish. Watery mouthfeel. Not disgusting, and it’s a Lebanon tick. Wahoo.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2010
Bottle @ Al-Amar restaurant in Pavillion. Dark coppery gold with fizzy head that fades fast. Aroma is mild maize. Very fizzy with lively carbonation. Unfortunate diacetyl on the palate. Not horrid but is buttery, thin, and fizzy. Bland but good grain character. Decent dryness and is drinkable.
