500ml can. Pours a clear medium gold, with a small off-white head, which neither lasts nor leaves much lace. There is a sickly sweetness to the aroma, but not much else going on. Hops are next to non-existent, but there is a fairly unpleasant sour flavour up front, giving way to an oily mouthfeel and an off treacley sweetness in the finish. Terrible stuff, with no real redeeming features whatsoever.

At a beer tasting. Drinkable and that was it. To strong, no really pleasuring flavours.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2014 500ml can served in an ordinary glass. As far as I can remember, my first Egyptian beer. A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a medium white and bubbled head that dissipates quickly but not totally leaving few lacings only S: Strong sweet malts and alcohol. Artificial and somehow plastic. Candy and a touch of citrus hops. Bready lager yeast profile T: Sweet and booze. Strong notes of sweet malts, caramel malts, candy. Some artificial plastic notes can be also felt in the mouth. End is light bitter. Hops profile is citrus Heineken-like M: Heavy, sweet and molasses body. Strong carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste O: Low drinkability. Terrible Lager [ BA Review @ 10/14/2013 ]

.33 can from Giza brought back to Belgrade by BalkanMac. Great one to try, though it is certainly a high-test malt liquor. Hard writing a review while listening to Tom Brosseau .. the distinct lack of poetry of the beer and Tom’s lyrics class while trying to make sense of both. Clear agressive malts, spritzer and sweet. Backbone is all sweet sparkling malt, not rudder correction for hops or flavor here. Just getting the job (of 8% lager in a alcohol-intoleranant country done in a reasonably flavorful manner will do. not a horrible beer.

I have tasted a few 8% beers in the past and most of them have been undrinkable, this on the other hand is very drinkable and doesn’t taste like an 8% beer.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
From a 330ml can in hotel room in Shark Bay. Pale gold with a disappearing halo. Aroma of honey, beeswax, lemon cake and rubber. Hot, yeasty and rubbery with the peppery warmth of alcohol more than evident. Dunked Twiglet, TCP and saline notes. A touch dank. Pretty rough: utterly unfinishable, in fact.

Bottle in Hurghada, Egypt. Pour clear golden with nice, white head. Malty aroma, quite sweet but balanced. Surprisingly nice and easy to drink, the alcohol is also well integrated. One of the best Egyptian beer I have tasted. More body and flavour than the watery pale lagers. (Backlog - tasted 2009-12-10)

500ml can. Straw-yellow color with a 2-finger white head that disappears quickly. Nose has some graininess and skunk-like aromas with faint herbal hops. Taste is not good. alcohol is dominating the mouth, malt is barely noticeable and the hop bitterness is having a hard time coming through the alcohol fumes. mouthfeel is lager-like, medium carbonation and light to medium body. extremely short finish.
