3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright amber with 3/4" warm Cadbury-cream head, moderate coarseness, moderate rate of decay. Aroma is tart herbs: parsley, lemongrass, some juniper, and mint/eucalyptus (turns out the mint was correct, but I missed the sage, thyme, anise, sumac, and chamomile... I need to cook more- I have not idea what those taste like off of the top of my head.) Body is water, slightly starchy, medium-light carbonation, moderate coarseness, soft. Medium-light burn. Flavor is considerabel medicinal herbon a semisweet, light malt backbone. Birch sap? Overall: neat spicing - wish there were more beers to learn from like this. Drinkable but not delicious.

Uma cerveja extremamente complexa. Me surpreendi com notas de menta e temperos árabes. Estranhamente combinados.
Complex, that's explain the beer. Mint and some arabic condiments.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
small frothy offwhite head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing clear average-density dark yellow body. aroma: very unusual hints of mint, anise, chamomile, sage and thyme (those were named on the label) and I could also sniff out white pepper and nutmeg, with slight hints of cardamom. if: light sweet. ff: light sweet and very light bitter; long duration. palate: light medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation and metallic finish. Há ainda a adição de sumagre, cujo aroma nunca senti e portanto não posso afirmar em relação a sua presença no bouquet. Maravilhoso e exótico sabor lembrando os aromas presentes no bouquet. Muito diferenciada. Sente-se bastante salvia, anis, hortelã, cardamomo e coentro no paladar, muito condimentada. Uma das PA mais diferenciadas que já degustei, se não a mais. 180 s

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft to taster at HopCat in GR. Looks solid; a completely transparent golden orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of a strange mix of herbs and spices; something from pizza sauce that I can’t put my finger on. Tastes like it smells with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Not my thing.

Bottle 0,33ltr: Clear amber colored brew with an sweet bitter taste, herbal hints likes an Arabian herbmarket (anise, thyme, sage and mint). Interesting beer devolopment from this part of the world.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear golden copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon, lime, tangerine, apricot, chamomile, mint, tea, herbal, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of hops, spice, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, lime, tangerine, apricot, chamomile, mint, tea, herbal, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, lime, apricot, tangerine, chamomile, mint, tea, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of hops, spices, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/spice balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good spiced pale ale style. All around good balance, complexity, and robustness of hops, spices, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Flaska på Printz.
Libanesisk hantverksöl, hur mäktigt?!
Klar bärnsten med lätt vitt skum.
Doftar kryddigt och lätt av dyvatten.
Ganska klen i smaken, men fruktig och kryddig.
Tunn i munkänslan.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Clear amber in color with a medium egg-white head that is mostly diminishing. Rather spicy nose - to me it seems like oregano and basil predominantly (neither of which are listed as ingredients), though sage and chamomile are also noticeable (which are indeed used). Flavor is a touch sweet as the spices take a backseat. The underlying malts are a touch anemic and bring flavors of a light sourdough bread. Overall, though, rather interesting - reminds me a bit of the much hated Pizza Beer - which I actually like and make a homebrewed version of myself. The malt base leaves much to be desired, however, and metallic notes in the finish are a bit off-putting. But still rather interesting. Here’s to my favorite (fictional) Lebonese, Maxwell Q. Klinger! (And thanks to Narnad for this bottle).
