Bottle.[Tasting session @ yespr, thanks for a great evening Jesper] Average creamy off-white head that mostly diminished. Good display of lacework. Clear flat looking body with a pale golden colour. Aroma of grass, cardboard, dusty grain, mash. Over the palate light caramel and straw. Light bodied with a lively carbonation and light dry texture. Light sweet flavour with a hint of bitterness. Light dry and somewhat sweet finish.

i ’ve had it in Egypt when the temperature was about 35 Celsius. It was so good! So, this is a light lager beer with an easy aroma. Not a big beer, a commercial, mass-produced, drinkable stuff, but it is very good in the desert, maybe at the pyramids.

I had this in the Sinai with a couple of Egyptians I met. Served in a big cold bottle, it was a plain lager. But in the heat, with all the smoking going on, it went down well. All those years ago.....

Bottle. Enjoyed this one (actually two) on my first night in Cairo, Egypt - Today. What a glorious City, and the beer could not have tasted finer for the set and setting. A pale yellow color with a smooth clean finish and a light malt and corn base. Yum. Likely would not have the same reaction out of context, but isn’t rating all contextual.

Clear yellow color, short frothy head. Aroma of grass, some hop, hay, some malt. Bit dry grassy taste. Typical mediterranean pale lager. Not bad when it’s hot outside.

Can. Rather clear and weak overall, a bit skunky as well. A friend brought it back from an Egypt trip. Found it a bit better than the Luxor, but not as good as Meister. Not too impressed with Egyptian beer.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Limpid yellow color, much pale with a light fizz. Light head of medium persistence. Considerably aroma of cereals, dampen straw and grain. Slightly watery taste, prickly but with an extinguishing and dull bitter.

Kind of skunky, but this is real Egyptian beer! I drank the hell out of this average brew when I was in Cairo, and can’t neccessarily say thjat I enjoyed it, but it was a cool "cultural experience"
