COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Working with our archeologist friend Dr. Pat McGovern, this beer was created to incorporate the ancient ingredients and techniques described in Egyptian hieroglyphics. It was brewed to 11.4Plato with Emmer (an ancient form of wheat) and loaves of hearth baked bread and flavored with dom-palm fruit, chamomile, and zatar. Fermentation was carried out by a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain captured by Sam and Floris during a recent trip to Egypt. ABV went from 5 to 4.5%.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Golden- yellow color with a decent white head. Bread notes are upfront. Also getting very earthy notes and a slight herbal note at the end from the za’tar I guess. I’m not sure if I even pick up any of the doum. Crisp taste throughout. Overall a very good, drinkable and complex beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle, nice label. It pours a clear honeyish color with a fizzy white head that leaves no lacing. The smell is odd. Definitely spicey in a north-African sort-of way there is some standard cinnamony smell, graham cracker. It is mildly fruity. The flavor is floral and spicy. There is a hint of tanginess, it really tastes unlike any other beer. I am not the biggest fan. A lot of unique flavors here.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours clear golden with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of grain, bread, earthy notes, honey and faint citrus. The taste is bread, honey, citrus, other tart fruits, and a slight earthy and herbal note. Medium bodied. Quite refreshing.

This was surpisingly good. Pours a clear yellow but with a ring of white head. Reminded me of a kolsh but with a wheaty, bready, finish. I love the whole history of bringing back a beer recipe from egyptian hieroglyphs. Slightly herbal and subtle, crisp up front, and I guess the ’zatar’ comes out on the tail end? good stuff.

I expected a bit more from this one. This reminded me of a tea more than a beer. Aroma of honey. Light yellow color with consistency of tea. weak bodied. Sweet ending, for me, didn’t taste like alot. Interesting still.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2011
Serving: Draft at the Rehoboth Brewpub. It pours a deep yellow, almost gold color. No head. The nose was very light with just a touch of grain. The flavor was sort of grainy with a weird pizza like flavor leading to a chamomile and wheat finish. Light in body with average carbonation leading to a dry finish. This one isn’t my favorite.

On tap at the Rehoboth Brewpub. Served in a snifter. Pours a cloudy yellowish color with a soapy white head. Aroma of fruits, spices, and yeast. Sweet baked bread taste with heavy notes of honey,with other spices and light fruits. Frothy, creamy but still light. Unique, but nothing special.

Kinz (3459) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
On draft at the DFH brewpub. Hazy yellow. Aroma was bready, with a note of dusty coriander and thyme (even though I don’t think they used either one of these ingredients). Flavor matched. At first I thought the thyme was from a lemonade concoction someone else at the table had, but there was a clear thyme note for me in the brew. Surprisingly refreshing and drinkable, along the lines of a wit with some interesting spicing going on. Good.
