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.

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 (4800) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - 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.

Cunningham (6981) - Halden, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2012
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 (1899) - 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 (1109) - Sydney, 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.

ManVsBeer (8697) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2012
Excellent enough lager to quench the thirst on a hot day, although it is a hot day everyday in Egypt. Has a disappointing soapy aftertaste.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2012
Brought back from a world cruise by my parents: green 330ml bottle poured into a ’Duvel’ glass on a cold and wet May evening in Shropshire. Oh dear: this is one bland brew and it doesn’t hold it’s looks for long either. Clear body of very pale straw coloured liquid: the head that appeared disappeared just as quickly to leave a mini wisp and thin collar around the glass. Wet cardboard aroma, dry and metallic taste: this isn’t good. Wish I had someone to share it with (this is a live tasting).

UPDATED: APR 10, 2012 Small green bottle. Gift from my wife. Standard industrial pilsner. A bit on the sweet side.
