961 BEER LEBANESE PALE ALE

961 Beer Lebanese Pale Ale. Well, you’ve got to give it to them, it smells like Lebanese food. On the label, in addition to the usual suspects, are thyme, sumac, camomile, sage, anise and mint. I can here people in Germany screaming Kirchenschändung, das nein Reinheitsgebot!

You can really notice the thyme in the aroma, to the point that it almost smells like a lamb roast.

The taste? Like someone has dropped an entire spice rack into your beer.

The malt flavour clashes harshly with the herbs and spices and the aftertaste is remarkably similar to mouthwash.  

The relatively high 6.3% ABV adds a harsh ethanol taste to it.

It’s like you’ve eaten a kebab, vomited in your mouth then tried to get rid of the taste by rinsing your mouth with Listerine. This is nasty stuff.
