Almaza (Arabic for diamond) has a medium, white head, and a clear, bubbly, golden appearance, with a good amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is initially skunky (green bottle), but then itís mostly malt and a touch of hops. The taste is similar, grain up front and a light hop bitterness present to round it out. Some sweetness and paper flavor is here as well. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Almaza finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. Overall, itís an average beer, and I rate it 2 stars. RJT

bottle pours pale gold with a rocky medium white head, considerable lacing as well. Aroma is soured malts, grainy, crackers and skunky hops. Flavor is thin but not bad at all. Refreshing grassy and hay notes with earthen hops rounding it out.

Bottles around Beirut and Syria. A plain lager not up to the standards of Europe but drinkable anyway. Certainly preferable to the local stuff in Syria.

Itís a bit skunky which for me rates it better than a lot of pale lagers. You can at least taste the hops with first a touch of sweetness then a light sour aftertaste. 330 Bottle from the liquor store in Canrmore

Split a bottle with a buddy. This brew is just not for me. Not a lot of taste, not balanced, for a pale larger, just didnít have a lot going on with this beer.

jaghana (5287) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle 33cl in a Lebanon restaurant in Paris. A basic lager, not worse than poor products form europe but basic. Some malty side quite sweet and some sourness at the finish, classic lager.

Lebanon has beer apparently! Poured a very pale yellow with a thin white head. Taste is very skunky with not much else. Some light fruit. Taste is pretty watery with not much flavor. Finish is sweet, almost too sweet, with some skunky notes and dough. Not bad, but not great.

330ml bottle. Surprisingly good light beer. Pale colour with very little head. Taste had no skunk at all, it was mostly light sweetness with a hint of hops. Crisp and refreshing, nicely cabonated, Almaza got the job done.
