Beer review: Almaza

The lady and I went out for appetizers and a beer last night (before having Mussels at home). I tried a Lebanese Beer called Almaza. (Now) owned by Heineken brands, as seen on the link on the word Almaza,and having definite European influences I assumed it would taste a bit like a generic pilsner.
I tend to err more towards hoppier-aleier-darker beers, but I definitely have a passion for clean Dutch-French-Belgian-Italian-German-Czech style Lagers and Pilsners too, which this would fall into. Especially with warm weather coming.

Honestly I liked it, it was smooth, very crisp and that they brought out a frosted mug for it didn't hurt. I'd say it was bit blander than a Pilsner-Urquell or Stella, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, just different. Great hot weather beer. Went very well with spicy Mediterranean food, which is clearly its intention being Lebanese. I'd definitely order again.
