COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
10’000 years in the making, the LPA marks the return home for beer. From the land where beer and human civilisation were born, comes a new brew that is a marriage between Western brewing tradition, Eastern complexities, and a sublime expression of the Lebanese Renaissance. It was inspired straight from the Lebanese spice markets. For decades there has been little choice in the diversity of Lebanese beers. This beer provides an alternative for the Lebanese population, with ingredients such as za’atar, sumac, mint, sage, anise, and chamomile. The use of such herbs and spices makes this distinctive craft brew truly Lebanese.

Beerhunter111 (21762) - P´Castle, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein bernsteinfarbenes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr würzig nach Thymian, Oregano. Geschmack bitter würzig, dabei stechen die Gewürze stark heraus.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Guy at the stand (who reminded me of Oori from You cant mess with the Zohan) told me to get ready to have my mind blown. Wow was he right! This was one of the strangest and worst beers of the night!!! Poured a hazy golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma of strange herbs and grain. Yuk. Taste was just as bad. Pale malt, light herbs and spices. Gross!

Bottle at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours yellow with off-white foamy head, thyme and sumac aroima, low carbonation, a lot of spices to taste including sumac and thyme, longish finish. A veruy interesting beer, one of the most original ones I’ve tasted.

Bottle. Pours gold with a fluffy off white head. Aroma and taste are both dominated by a lot of tough to pin down spices. Lots of cardamom. Medium fizzy palate. Interesting.

Brave and interesting. For the first few gulps I loved the impressively strong taste of thyme but then the novelty faded and I would have preferred the beer without it. Other than the spices the beer is smooth with a slightly sweet malt and delicate hops. Interesting. Worth a try. But probably not one I’ll come back to.

Koelschtrinker (20768) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
Bitterer und deutlich gewürziger Antrunk. Etwas herb, die Gewürze lassen das Bier trocken erscheinen. Herb würziger Mittelteil, zum Ende auch malzig. 8/8/7/8/11/8

Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Pours a clean amber color with a low, white, quick fading head. Aroma has a tone of herbal nose to it. Smells like the pizza beer fad of the early 2000s with a strong sage and oregano-ish herbal nose. Not much else comes through the herbal presence. Flavor has a very strong herbal flavor with a very light note of pepper at the end. Body is light with a low amount of fizz. Overall this a blah beer. The herbal flavor this brew has is not one I would consider a good choice for a brew. Definite drain pour here.

This is equal parts good and weird. Sometimes you get a beer that is bad and weird (Dogfish Midas Touch I’m looking in your direction), but this one is good and weird. Says it has thyme, sumac, camomile, sage, anise and mint... kinda reminds us of those rosemary flavoured chips you can buy in some places. Fun to try, but not something I’d regularly drink.

2.2
TBone (17773) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Deep golden, brown color, good off-white head. Strong herbal aroma, wood (pencil), berries in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Lots of herbs (oregano, tarragon etc) in the flavor. Some fruity hoppyness. Too much spices to be enjoyable.
