1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle on a cruise on the Nile with Charlie. Despite Egypt’s long history of beer brewing, this is little more than water from the Nile with a little carbonation. Fairly sweet, some biscuit, and fizzy. Drinkable in a pinch, but not really enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Smells of vague maltiness. The aroma is bready, with notes of hay & grass. Light body. Watery. Tastes lightly sweet with a bit of sourness. A weak hops bitterness is present. Abrupt watery finish. Nothing about it. Just Egypt added.

Typical warm weather lager. Mild and slightly sweet with a low level hop bitterness. Quite a good thirst quencher.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle shared at Jack & Leighton’s Birthday Bash at Craft Beer Co, Clerkenwell on 13 April 2013. Thanks to whoever brought it along. The things we do for a country tick. Most of the time you know what you are going to get in general terms - dodgy pale lagers with varying degrees of grainy notes and a minimal hop presence, ranging between the nondescript and the vile. This one was on the right side of drinkable. But only barely. Pale gold, sweet and distinctly grainy. I’ve had worse.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a golden color with an average white head that soon settles down to a ring around the edge.
There is hoppy aroma of avergae strength.
The taste is sinitially slightly sweet followed by a decent bitternes for a lager. Finishes nicely with enough bitterness.
Extra refreshing on the hot Egyptian sun, but otherwise nothing out of the ordinary really.

Country #88. Bottle courtesy of Daniel Brown - cheers Dan. Nice big head on this. Not so great that I’m on the final day of Movember so that foamy head is now on my face. Smells of two pence pieces. Tastes like the shallow end at South Charnwood Leisure Centre - water, yes, but with a smorgasbord of cleaning fluids and other substances. Makes a decent moustache shampoo though.
