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.

caesar (5295) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2007
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.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - APR 6, 2007
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.

skortila (4602) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2007
Aroma is grainy, skunky, some malt. Clear, yellow coloured with not much white head. taste is sweet, watery and grainy. Egypt is not the country for beer..

Dorqui (2110) - Brescia, ITALY - FEB 6, 2007
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"

yngwie (13946) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2006
Can. Clear, pale yellow-golden with a small, white head. Weak aroma with grain and bread-notes. Malty and grainy flavor - bad! Watery body. A really bad one. (060929)

Thanks to my friend Lydia for bringing this back from Egypt! Aroma is initially major skunk, this is a typical light-struck pilsner in a green bottle. Once the skunk goes away a bit I get a touch of light honey perfume. Flavor is very light, with a touch of light malt flavor with some light honey notes. Light body, with medium carbonation and a mouthfilling texture.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2006
Pale yellow gold with not much of a head with disappeared almost instantly. Mostly just like another flavourless lager, although it is drinkable. The palate is probably the best thing, with a moderate carbonation level and reasonable depth.

tenghave (402) - Taastrup, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2006
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.
