Bottle at the Brickskeller on 11-13-05. Starw yellow. SMall fizzt white head. Nose is buttery and metallic. Light sweetness in there as well. Taste is grainy and buttery with light hints of hops.

Bottle at the Lebanese Taverna. Fizzy golden color with a smooth white soapy head that lingered till the end. Aroma is slightly malty and sweet. Flavor is sweet and clean, but with nothing refreshing. Not too bad for what it is.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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. Iíll probably never visit Lebanon in my life, so itís at least a little fun to have a beer from them, even if it is this poor.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
