1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Lebanon’s national standard lager - almost every country in the world has one - owned by Heineken. Apparently in existence since the thirties. Moussy, snow white, regularly shaped, lightly lacing head gradually thinning and eventually dissolving in the middle but with good edge retention; straw yellow golden colour, cristal clear with lively fizz and tiny, pale dots of ’dust’ here and there. Aroma is initially dominated by that horrible, ammonia-like, skunked lightstruck effect but once this fades a bit, some other odours show up, dry and very old breakfast cereals, soggy sugarcorn, fermenting grass, wet paper, damp kitchen cloth, lots of iron especially in the foam (clearly head stabilizer), old cardboard, rubber. Neutral to vaguely grain-sweet onset, soggy corn flavor, fizzy carbo, slick and thin mouthfeel. Some grainy sourishness in the middle too, very metallic feeling as well, some vague grassy hop bitterishness in the end but everything remains very subdued and neutral. Another completely generic, soulless, bland and boring macro pale lager, even scoring a bit below average for the style (for me at least) due to the thin body and overall very neutral profile. But a nice country tick of course, many thanks to Ruben for that!

11.2 oz bottle at Alhambra Palace in Chicago. Pours a clear pale golden color with fizzy white head that vanishes quickly. Aroma is skunky, with some corn, apples, and bread. Taste is sweet without much of any hops presence. Body is light with lively carbonation. Easy to drink, but not memorable.
