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.

33 cL bottle. Pours clear and slight pale yellow with a white head. Light fruity hops aroma, slight citrus note. Flavour is medium dry to light fruity. Finish is light malty and with a mild bitterness into the finish.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2004
A clear yellow beer with no head. The aroma is sour malty (brewing cereal?) with notes of caramel and alcohol - the alcohol in the nose is surprising in such a light beer. The flavor is of hay, caramel, and malt. It is a boring pilsener. It was a lot better in Luxor 4 years ago in 40 degrees Centigrade - or is that just a lapse of memory? But it still brings back memories. Thanks to Alex (fiulijn) for giving me this one.

Canned (thanks Bov). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is rubber, metal, poop, rubber and some cereals and eggyness. Flavour is strange fruityness, metal, rubber, and quite unpleasant in many ways. This is what I will blame if my stomach gets upset.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Nice flowery nose, but the hops seem to have evaporated without leaving just the slightest touch of bitterness... Nice golden, almost absent head. Incredibly sweet - even for a 3rd world lager. Now we know why King Tut-Ankh-Amun died: in shame....

Golden coloured. Bready, dry and bitter. Rather tasty in fact.

In Egypt, one of my few from memory. I remember this as we all know INBEVs Stella, so it was a suprise to find 3 version of Stella when in Egype. Plus my Wife is called Stella, so i could now claim that Stella came in 3 different flavours... This was all you would expect from a poor lager.

There really is no reason to drink this beer. Characterless and flavorless. Stick to hard liquor.

Blond color. No head retention. Some malt aroma and flavor, common lager, not so bad.

Leighton (18719) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell, London during the Birthday Celebration of Jack & Leighton - thanks to Lyoli for sourcing this beauty out of Cairo! Pours perfectly clear yellow with a fine, white froth. Nose of clowers, corn, white bread and hay. Light sweet flavor with some cereal, white bread, corn, white sugar. Light bodied with medium carbonation. Sweet finish, lightly doughy, with bits of cereal, corn, slighty paper. Not too bad, though certainly not in the upper echelons of pale lagers.
