Theres not much to say about this latest country tick. Even if you like fizzy lagers with no inspiration I could still think of twenty alternatives that are better.

Aroma / Appearance - A fizzy golden body looks more like ginger ale than beer. Wispy white strands of head surface from time to time. Corn, wet dog, and piles of leaves mix into this uninspired blend that is just boring. It is not sour or offputting so much as totally forgettable.

Flavor / Palate - Bland, flavorless, and predictable the taste is what you would expect from this sort of beer. Only a grainy corn texture provides anything more than fluid alcohol. Thankfully there are not many to go before I can focus on more local releases that are at least fresh.

Yellow straw with white head. Plain mediteranean type corn lager, sweet malt, lacks bitterness, but has a bit more citrusy character than many. Hopefully not representative of the best beer Lebanon can offer.

not bad for a pale ale. Definitely similar to a Heineken. Looks like any other pale ale but with better taste.

Benzai (14656) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, average sized white head thats gone instantly. Smell malts and grains. Taste malts, grains, bitter. Not bad, nice and bitter. Very thin texture though. Low to medium carbonation, low body.

I can say, without any hesitation or without doubt, that this is THE greatest beer Ive ever had.....from Lebanon. Actually, suprisingly good as a matter of fact. Perhaps it was the mood I was in, or just the fact the sky was bluy and the clouds were puffy and white...but it went down really nicely.

Beer pours out a golden yellow body, nice conditioning with tight bubbles floating up to meet a fluffy white head. Aroma has some light hints of hay, apple juice and honey but thankfully void of skunk or boiled veggies or any other off aromas. Flavor has some grainy/dusty notes, lightly floral flavor with a really suprising dry finish. Body was medium carbonated, with a medium vibrant finish. A rare gem from Lebanon!!!

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2012 A pale gold color with a faint white head that disappears quickly. The aroma has yeast and a faint citrus note with a flavor of more yeast and apples.

Bosco (299) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Amber yellow minimal head minimal lace. Slightly sweet with a spice accent. No body to speak of. Not offensive, just a mild, dry pilsener that needs to be paired with the right food. From bottle at Meza Mediterranean Grill in Boca Raton, Florida

worldbeertaste (1800) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2011
Clear Yellow colour with a light lemon smell.Light thin body with light carbonation. Hoppy and watery taste with a sour malt finish. Very bland and borring.
