Introduced in 1897, Stella was born 100 years ago, and has since been an icon in Egyptian history. Bringing modern brewing methods into Egyptian beer making, it has become a part of the daily life, and close to the hearts of Egyptian consumers.

Pilsner (50 cl. flaske). Kedelig egyptisk øl med megen kulsyre, som dog er god til at slukke tørsten med eller drikke sig fuld i. Hvis der er andre muligheder at vælge i mellem ville jeg aldrig vælge denne.

I had this beer a few years ago while stationed on the Sanai Peninsula. It was a good change from the American macros. I would recommend that if you find yourself in Sharm el Shek you do not order this beer at the American bar. I ordered five at one time and each was filled to a different level. I was left wondering if these beers were filled in back with a garden hose or worse.

Sipping on a Stella Lager in polluted Cairo while the mosque calls people to prayer through megaphones is an interesting experience, to say the least. Finding a place willing to serve alcohol in a moslem country is tough and Stella, though not all that good, is sufficient reward for your search. Watery and mild, not unlike Meister Lager, just with less water.

the best beer in egypt. The only beer brewed in egypt. Poor quality control. wide disparity in flavor from batch to batch.

Blond color. No head retention. Some malt aroma and flavor, common lager, not so bad.

(Bottle 50 cl) Nice flowery nose, but the hops seem to have evaporated without leaving just the slightest touch of bitterness... Nice golden, almost absent head. Incredibly sweet - even for a 3rd world lager. Now we know why King Tut-Ankh-Amun died: in shame....

This is the beer we drank when stationed in the middle east. Rumor had it that it has formaldhyde in it. If that is so, my wife can save a few bucks at the funeral home when I go, because we chugged down these nasty, skunky tasting beers by the case.

Bottle. Got this at a local market in Aswan. Very different from the Export version. Light yellow, with a very slight white head. Not much flaver. Skp this and go for the export version.
