3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Enjoyed this one (actually two) on my first night in Cairo, Egypt - Today. What a glorious City, and the beer could not have tasted finer for the set and setting. A pale yellow color with a smooth clean finish and a light malt and corn base. Yum. Likely would not have the same reaction out of context, but isn’t rating all contextual.

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.

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.

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"

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)

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.
