Pours a clear yellow gold color with a big white head. The smell is a bit skunky, under the skunk is light sweet malt, grain, bitter hop aroma. The taste is light sweet malt, some skunk, grain with a crisp finish. Light body with average carbonation. The skunkiness throws it off a bit but it is a bit better than I expected.

Bottle at Mamnoon. A better than expected pils made better still because it was such a perfect complement to an awesome meal. Crisp, slightly spicy, grainy. Lively finish.

Bottle at Epcot. Pours dark gd with little head. Earthy noble hop bitterness. Smooth clean malt with just a hint of hop bite. Decent pils. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Aroma - is soft bread malt. It’s not a big nose at all. Appearance - is a clean yellow body with a small white head, that quickly fades and falls. Taste - the taste isn’t quite as crisp as I’d expect of a pilsner, but that’s because this really isn’t a pilsner. It’s more bready and somewhat sweet, and just a tad tangy. Feel - body is light, the texture thin, the carbonation average, and the finish is abrupt. If I was in Lebanon, I’d be quite content to have this as a session. It’s actually not a bad beer. Just not a big beer or an artisinal beer, it is what it is.

Erzengel (2561) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2014
the beer starts smooth, a bit grainy. Slightly watery. The main part is more bitter than expected but very smooth. In the aftertaste slightly grainy, smooth-malty and nice bitter. I assume that for a hot day in Lebanon this beer is nice. --> 10/12/9/10

Clear yellow with no foam head left. Just another mass produced pilsener. But it's from Lebanon so important to add to my list. (Heathrow 201401) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
