Pours clear and frothy, not really a pilsener, really quite bland. Although I bought this with a lamb and rice dish at a local lebanese restaurant, so it provided a nice compliment to the extremely flavorful food. Alone, it is not so great, and thus gets a lower score. Overall, very smooth, yet fizzy and bland.

This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of white colored frothy mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent carbonated light yellow orange colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was astringent with a strong dirty sock note. The mouth feel was crisp and smooth with a mild hop content that mellowed in its finish. The flavor was a simple malt hop one.

RichardGretton (4298) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Bottled. Golden beer with a very sweet and sugary aroma and a weekly mild flavour with a little dryness. Overall a typical beer of the type.

hotstuff (4285) - Indiana, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Small white head that mostly diminished, fine-small sized bubbles, sparse lacing, transparent, carbonated, and a yellow golden hue. Malty, skunky aroma. Flavor was malty, dry and bland and boring. Mouthfeel was tingly and dry. Light body.

3fourths (8239) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Clear yellow color, typical lager appearance. Smells a little bit like make-up: chalky, chemical and plastic-like, with some very putrid fuesal notes. Fizzy weak texture, falls completely transparent and empty on the back of the tongue. Flavors are weak chalky medicine more make-up. But again, very light, almost flavorless. I’ll probably never visit Lebanon in my life, so it’s at least a little fun to have a beer from them, even if it is this poor.

Bottled. Greenish golden colour, small bubbly head. Caramellish malty nose. Sweet caramellish malty flavour with hayish hints. Sweetish aftertaste with hoppy hints.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle at a reception in Geneva - I was surprised to find a Lebanese beer there. Poured clear brownish golden with a small head. Faint, malty aroma with hints of floral hops - not much here. Non-descript lager flavor, light malt sweetness, some floral and citrus hoppiness. Light body with nice crisp carbonation.

A "bit" aged bottle :) Golden color, small creamy head. Fruity, a bit of apple juice in the nose. Sweetish fruity, malty flavor, even slightly sugary. Soft palate. When I lived in Lebanon, it was said that recipe came from Amstel.

Bottle. Golden colour with a slim white head. Weak, sweet malty aroma. Doesn’t really taste of much, watery, with a suggestion of something crap in there somewhere. This trying beers just to add to the number of countries tried, is a path best avoided, it is frought with menace and is only generating another list of countries I shan’t be paying a visit to.

faint malty sweet aroma. Pours a pale yellow, thin white head. I continue to add more countries to my list by not drinking any quality. Another piss poor lager. Watery and grassy with a pronounced sour finish. Blech.
