Following the successful launch of the New Almaza 33 CL Pilsener bottle March 2006, Brasserie Almaza s.a.l. recently introduced into the Lebanese market Almaza Pure Malt, a specialty dark beer brewed with 100% malted barley having a 6% alcohol level. Its creamy foam enhances the tantalizing rich aroma, offering a memorable drinking experience. The unique taste of this distinctive beer is most appreciated when sipped from a glass and shared during gatherings with special people.

Bierkrug (2132) - - OCT 14, 2012
330 ml bottle at the Airport in Beirut, Lebanon. Pours a brown color with a Beige short lasting head. Aroma is Malt and some fruitiness. Taste is malt paper and some fruit. Palate is to bubbley and slightly harsh. A far cry better than their normal beer but still way below average.

stoutchap (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2014
Not bad. Reddish clear pour with a fizzy yellow head. Neutral aroma. Malty flavor, with just the slightest nutty flavor. Not bad. Not great. But not bad. Only thing against it really was a watery mouthfeel.

freretoc (1213) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 2, 2014
Bu en bouteille de 3cl en 2007, cette bière venait juste de sortir, dans mes souvenirs grosse note sur le grillée, un peu difficile à boire sous les fortes chaleurs beyrouthines

Martinus (4065) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2014
Clear reddish brown colour, white head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Sweet caramel flavour. Sweet finish. Too sweet for me I’m afraid.
(From 33cL bottle @ the pre-RBBWG get-together at Tim’s place. Thanks for sharing, Tim!!)

sebletitje (8022) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Tderoeck. Ambrée, col beige. Arôme est malté poussiéreux restant assez faiblard malgré ce petit côté caramel et léger sucre résiduel qui se font présent. Palais est malté, caramel assez typique avec des notes de malt carapils, pâle accompagnés d’une fin amertume surtout en toute fin de bouche. Reste correcte et seul le profil malté parvient à donner vie à cette bière. Niveau bière, il y a certainement plus mauvais dans cette région du monde qui est loin d’être connue pour ses variétés de bières.

DroolYeast (519) - Aalborg, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2014
Malt aroma. Red-brown colour with virtually no head. Much malt taste, sweetness, some overripe fruit maybe? caramel aftertaste.
