Green bottle. Thanks, after4ever! Pours pale amber with a thin white head that plays out quickly. The aroma and taste were a kaleidescope of skunk, lemon and cat piss. If there was ever a good argument for a law requiring brown glass on all beer bottles, this beer is it.

500. Thanks, Maria! Crystal clear medium gold. Cat pee, lemon, and skunk on the nose. Thin fizzy white head. Horrible sour cat pee lemon and skunk miod-palate. Stale aluminum finish. Blecch.

Bottle at after4ever’s tasting.
My understanding is that humankind has been brewing beer in Egypt for longer than anywhere else; if so, it seems they’re backsliding something wicked. Fuzzy white head, pale yellow color. Tons of cat piss in the aroma, this thing is a real standout in terms of aromatic awfulness. Skunked beyond belief, clearly its time in a green bottle did it no favors. In this condition it is surely one of the worst beers I’ve ever had, and perhaps the worst non-flavored beer of my beer drinking career.

Thank you Kirsten and Mogens for bringing this one back after having chased around a lot to find a beer... Straw color and a nice, white head. The aroma has a light malty sweetness, notes of grain and hints of citrus. The flavour is watery, but smooth with light notes like in the aroma and practically no bitterness. It’s very uncomplicated, not at all unpleasant and very easy to drink. I bet this is nice in the warmth in Egypt.
