Bottle from my sister’s holiday in Charm and Shake. Thanks Lorn! Smells like treacled miller, with a force fed ferret on the side. I can conjure the scent of swimming pool - chlorine etc. Taste is soft, sweet malt. Almost sickly, but water saves the day (like Whitney Houston). I doubt it.

Bottle kindly shared by larsga. Tall, shiny white head. Pale yellow colored body. White sugar and fruit candy to the nose. Watered down and light. Lemonade flavored. Not really malty, a certain sourness only. Traces of bittering hops deep down below. Short sappy lemon finish. Not far from awful.

I thought it was ok on a hot day in Egypt. It is another typical lager from a macrobrewery. Decent body and head of foam. The taste was fine but nothing special. If you’re in Egypt this is one of the most widely available beers, it gets the job done but is nothing to write home about.

Clear pale blond beer, big creamy white head, little stable, adhesive, nice lacing. Aroma: grains, bit sweet, little spicy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bit sugary, sweet malts, candied orange peel. Aftertaste: sweet, grains, hay, little bitter, then a dry bitter finish.

visionthing (3133) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2012
50cl bottle in Hurghada, Egypt. Pours clear, pale golden with a minimal, white head. Lightly malty aroma with hints of cooked vegetables and hops. A bit sweet and not so much flavour. Pretty standard industrial pale lager, drinkable, especially on a sunny day in Egypt. Slightly higher alcohol content than Sakara Gold, but I would prefer the latter one.

Yellow colour with a white head. Moderate malty and light hoppy aroma. A bit thin body. Light fruity flavour with an ok caramel malt background. Far better than expected. Moderate sweet and light hoppy.

Kita (1277) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 3, 2012
Bottled, 0.33l. Clear pale golden color with large frothy white head and lively carbonation. Aroma of grassy hops, malt, citruses and a bit skunky, too. Taste starts sour fruity and is followed by light malty spiciness, which extends into the finish. Mouthfeel is well carbonated, while aftertaste is lightly bitter. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Could be worse...

ComradeK (1059) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2012
330ml can. Pours a clear and quite light gold, with a small white head, which fades rapidly and leaves no lace. The aroma is mercifully faint: what is there is soapy and over-sweet. There are no noticeable hops flavours, merely soap and a syrupy sweetness, with the expected metallic aftertaste. A terrible lager, not even redeemed by the surrounding Egyptian heat, since it was served lukewarm.
