It's difficult enough to locate a Middle Eastern beer, but Lebanon has a different culture which allows beer to flow a little more freely. It comes in a green 330 ml bottle, so I'm hoping that skunkiness comes at a minimal. On to the beer:

Pale, somewhat washed out golden colored in the body with visible small bubbles running from bottom to top. At the top rests a rocky, foamy head which slowly drops and leaves a few big spots of lacing. After a stinky first impression with the aroma, much of it withers away to a nose with sulfur, vague fruity esters, dry grain, and husk. In fact, it's not too terrible, though don't confuse it with good.

After so many different national lagers, many of them start to run together. I would draw Almaza closer to Heineken with a few bruises from a long journey than a Budweiser. Slightly sweet, minerals, touch of sulfur, and a light body with little crispness makes the character of this beer.

Not too bad as it is. In the part of the world where it's from, it could easily be worse; there could be no beer at all! (Ironic, considering beer was created in said region.)

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass at Disney's Epcot.

Appearance: Yellow with a thin white head. Mild lacing on the glass.

Smell: Very light hops, almost no smell.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of watered down light hops.

Overall: Ok I guess, glad I tried it.
