11.2 oz green bottle. Packaged on 10/03/06 best before 10/03/07. Poured into a pils glass.

Clear golden with a rocky white head and minimal lace.

Aroma is mildly grassy hops, and stale grains.

Flavor is a touch metallic, sour grains, with a spicy finish.

Bottle sampled. Pours pale golden with a anverage size fizzy white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts and some slight skunky hops. The flavor is carbonated, straw, and mild bitterness. Thin mouth feel, however i didnít expect anything more of this brew.

Pours a deep golden color with a decent head. Grassy aroma with some thick malt notes. Reminded me of an older Heineken. Light skunky taste, but it wasít really that bad. Dry finish. A little bitter, but not too bad.

I just read all of these blogs and to say anything negative about this beer is just wrong. Now if one is used to the heavy German or Irish tasting beers, one may say that Almaza is carbonated water, but if one is used to the regular crap beer from the US, one cannot deny that this is edible gold. The appearance is just like any beer, and if poured incorrectly will leave some undesirable head at the top of your glass. It flavor leaves one asking for, and for a pilsner, its unique, yet no after taste, but satisfying. It is malty in flavor with a grassy hint in the mix. If you need to grap for another drink to wash it down then you need to drink your own urine in my opinion. This beer is made by a very picky people, the Lebanese, but I would hardly think that an American from Bridgeville, Penn would understand that. Enjoy your Yuengling sir. All in all, itt is a great beer with a tendency to be light in alcohol but not flavor.

This beer is the reason there is so much strife in the Middle East. No good beer. It was urine yellow, seemed flat, had a terribly skunky aroma and a bad unpleasant taste. The worst was the palate which made me grab for the nearest beverage to wash it out of my mouth.

Pours golden with a effervescent body and a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of crackers, light malt, honey. Taste is grassy, lightly malty. Mouthfeel of light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Itís ok.. but not good.

Bottle. Standard looking lager with no head. Aroma was slightly grassy, flavour watery with a touch of malt. Alright as a holiday drink.
