3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I can say, without any hesitation or without doubt, that this is THE greatest beer I’ve ever had.....from Lebanon. Actually, suprisingly good as a matter of fact. Perhaps it was the mood I was in, or just the fact the sky was bluy and the clouds were puffy and white...but it went down really nicely.
Beer pours out a golden yellow body, nice conditioning with tight bubbles floating up to meet a fluffy white head. Aroma has some light hints of hay, apple juice and honey but thankfully void of skunk or boiled veggies or any other off aromas. Flavor has some grainy/dusty notes, lightly floral flavor with a really suprising dry finish. Body was medium carbonated, with a medium vibrant finish. A rare gem from Lebanon!!!

2.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber yellow minimal head minimal lace.
Slightly sweet with a spice accent. No body to speak of.
Not offensive, just a mild, dry pilsener that needs to be paired with the right food.
From bottle at Meza Mediterranean Grill in Boca Raton, Florida

12 oz. bottle, pours piss yellow with a small white head. Aroma of corn, urine and grain. Flavour of corn, piss and stale malts. Nasty piss lager.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle at Noura. Looked slightly syrupy golden, absolutely flat - very unappealing. No notable aroma, taste very flat (adjuncts?), lacking hop, really not very nice.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
bottle - Pours clear yellow and has minimal aroma. It tastes of grainy malt with some light hops flavor similar to euro macro lagers. It’s watery and light bodied and not completely and totally awful, but not good by any means. It’s like a poor man’s Heineken.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this one at a Lebanese restaurant in Portland, OR. Pours a clear light straw color with absolutely zero head. Champagne like carbonation and lack of foam means either my glass was dirty, or there is a lot of non-malt adjuncts in this beer. Aroma is of canned corn, apple cider, and slight medicinal chemical fumes. Tastes like a BMC, no outstanding qualities, no overly offensive qualities. Finishes dry yet leaves a sinewy sensation on the tongue....okay so that may be offensive. No better and no worse than BM or C.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a thin, short lived head, over a clear, yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is light cereal, corn. sugar......taste is sweet light cereal, corn, finishing with minimal hop.....mouth feel light, carbonation present, adding a fizzy quality. Although listed on the label as a Pilsner, this is just a Pale Lager, with all the insipid nuances of that revolting style. BJCP 5/2/9/4/4
