[Can from Kjell bought in Cairo.] Can @ Odense Tasting, Feb 2010. Noisy brew, but it was the best "overseas" beer that eve. Watery and corny.

Bottle shared with JMD 01.11.15. Clear pale straw colour. Diminishing off-white head. Moderate aroma of pale malt, and unfresh fruits. Some bitterness. A standard eurolager. Not particularly good.

Holmen1 (3925) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2015
Flaske (takk til Pascal L!), delt med Ovesen: klar lys gylden med kort hvitt skum. Halvvissen aroma, daff smak av malt og kokte grønnsaker. OK karbonering, så den er nok lettdrikkelig i skyggen av pyramidene.

Benzai (11338) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle [thanks to my former neighbour Ad for bringing this from holiday] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, a decent bitterness. Not much more to tell but I quite like it actually. Easy drinkable and nicely bitter. Better than some of those sweetish grainy pale lagers you often find.

DutchDrebus (5107) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle @ benzai. Clear golden with a medium sized white head that doesn’t last long. Smells malts, grains, slightly cardboard. Tastes malts, grains, maybe corn or rice. Screw the haters, beers like this shouldn’t score below a 2.5. Thin to medium body, nice crisp carbo.

Clear golden lager with a thin white head. Not much aroma, flavour is a pretty basic slightly watery lager. That said if I’d rated it last night fresh off the plane in 24 degrees it might have been pushing five stars!

0,5l Flasche auf dem Nil. Säuerlicher metallischer Duft. Süßlich getreidig und herb. Deutliche Fehlnoten im Abgang. Schmeckt nur auf dem Nil.

500ml can at home. Clear yellow golden color with nice white head. Malty aroma, grainy, light straw. Sweet and light bitter taste. Light thin body with soft carbonation.

Bottle. Pale golden color. Aroma: sweet corn and malt. Taste: watery, not very clean, corn. Refreshing drink even if the heat. Unpleasant.

MarkoNm (1895) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 16, 2015
Pours a clear, golden color, topped with a medium frothy white head. Malty aroma, grainy, not much else. Taste is slightly sweet with mild final bitterness. Slightly metallic as well. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a typical average macro lager.

Sakara Gold was the second of the two beers that I tasted during my brief visit to Egypt. Like Stella Lager is a completely ordinary lager that tastes exactly like a Heineken. Sakara Gold is slightly more foamy than Stella Lager and it’s a bit more hoppy expression. However, only such a small difference that one would hardly find it in a blind tasting.
