A truly amber liquid, like clover honey with sunlight shining through it. The head is respectably irregular. Bubbles are medium-small. The smell packs a wollop of toasted grain, charred corn, pozole, grits and a hint of fresh corn sweetness; all on the nose. Reminds me of a boiling pot of tamales. Rich, supple, creamy texture supported by ample gas bears hay-like, boiled sweet grain nuances: Kasha, groats, wheat etc. A supple, roasty, mellow Euro-pils or a characterful, avante garde American Lager.

2.76/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Little 9.5 oz green bottle with no freshness date. Good amount of sticky white lace and the retention is fine. Some particles in suspension though the golden brew is relatively clear.

Cooked veggie like hop with a sweet grain aroma.

Smooth and slick mouth feel, moderate carbonation and body. Big cooked veggie flavour of cabbage and celery partially from the hops and some DMS. Grainy flavours are sweet and mildly astringent at the same time. Hop bitterness is uniform to the size of the beer. Apple skin and more grain in the finish.

Decent and that is about it, nothing special here … unless you are looking for a beer that is brewed in Lebanon.

3.65/5  rDev +30.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 9.5oz green bottle. No freshness date.

Appearance: Dirty blonder in colour, with a touch of haze. Active carbonation that produces a thin white foam head.

Smell: Clean aroma / touch of musty apple.

Taste: Smooth and creamy. Light DMS (cooked veggie / corn) flavour turns quite sweet and fruity, with distinct Red Delicious apple flavours. Touch of musty grain way in the back of the palate, along with some sulfur notes. Finish is a bit dry.

Notes: Not a typical Pils beer, but rather enjoyable and a nice surprise and change on the old palate.

Beer was produced in conjuction with Amstel Brouwerij, Holland. Sample obtained at Zu Zu / The Middle East in Cambridge, MA, USA.
