Notes/Commercial Description:
For this ambitious liquid time capsule, we used ingredients and traditions plucked from Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it's flavored with chamomile, dom-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs. To ferment this earthy ancient ale, Sam and friends traveled to Cairo, set out baited petri dishes and captured a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain.

Pours cloudy amber with no head at all.

Smell is biscuits, camomile and a slight fruitiness.

The taste is exactly like the smell, biscuits and camomile.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall a very unique beer, definately not one of my favourites but worth a try. Although I'm struggling to finish the bottle.
