10/01 0.5 l can brought by a friend from Syria, thanks Damir! It poured golden body with medium sized head. Weaker, floral and herbal hops aroma. Flavor was also weak flowery malty with touch of hops. Not bad, but misses lot of body. Short and watery finish. Relatively OK from where it is, but this is just an one-dimensional and boring brew.

Marko (4855) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 10, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2009 Can courtesy of an acquaintance who brought it from Syria (thanks!), to heavy with whom this was shared. Poured a pale golden body with a nice and big fluffy thick white head that went away at a medium pace. Slightly acidic hop nose, some dustiness. Nice enough even if a little salty and with some metal. Very light but fine notes of apple and very subtle hop, dry and carrying some bite.

<i>Can (33 cl), thanks to gnoff and his friend</i>. Pale golden, medium white head. Grainy and slightly skunky, no hop aromas. Flat mouthfeel. Low sweetness, low bitterness, low of everything.

TBone (16088) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 9, 2009
Can (BB 01/2006). Pale yellow color, small white head. Grainy, papery petrol aroma. Apple/cider -like fruity flavor. Fizzy carbonation. No bitterness. Quickly vanishing sweetish finish.

Canned (thanks Bov). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is rubber, metal, poop, rubber and some cereals and eggyness. Flavour is strange fruityness, metal, rubber, and quite unpleasant in many ways. This is what I will blame if my stomach gets upset.

rosenbergh (10204) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2008
Bottle. From Egypt. Very basic bulk lager. Not very good though. I think the best quality is the aroma. East to drink ice cold under the burning sun.

There really is no reason to drink this beer. Characterless and flavorless. Stick to hard liquor.

Had a bottle, and also a can, in the Stella Bar in Cairo, Egypt. A few more in Luxor. Nothing special in any way shape or form, though it avoids the metallic taste that you usually get in Arab North African beer. Gets the job done, but not gracefully.
