5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
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.

Bottle->lager. Pours a clear pale gold with small white head. Not a particularly good beer, but its specific combination of lager malt, rains, and grass aromatics is actually ok.

@ Silenzi: en ganska standard och halvbrödig eurolager som inte ger mig något som helst.

Bardzo slabienkie piwo. Lekko goryczkowe i malo slodowe, jasniutkie i prawie slomkowe. Piana niewielka i ulotna, malo zbita w zapachu nuty kukurydzianego slodu, ale w smaku juz nie byly tak wyrazne. Piwo do picia tylko w Libanie

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Appearance: clear yellow, short soapy white head, almost no lacing. Aroma: skunky grass and grains. Taste: pepper, grass, dried hay, wet bread. Finish: mineral, with a hint of cracker after a few seconds. Notes: As I tried this, I thought "this sure tastes like a skunky heineken". Now I see that this is a heineken-owned brewery. Something tells me they are just brewing the heineken recipe and bottling it in Almaza bottles. Either way, it’s straight shite.

Can from Beirut.
Clear golden with a white head. Light aroma and taste of hay, honey and some vegetables. Drinkable but nothing to write home about.

Malty aroma. HInts of sugar.

Bottle - fair size foamy head, light straw color, light sweet malty aroma and flavor - very basic general pale lager, certainly nothing special here
