ComradeK (1060) - The Vale of Dundas, - 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.

rgf001 (184) - München, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2015
As its twin with a bit less alcohol, Sakara, aromas of grainy malt and flowery noble hop, probably from oil extracts. Perfect appearance with abundant head for a 4% lager. The bitterness is not perfectly clean, tastes exactly like bitterness extract. Below this bitterness one can taste grainy maltiness. Dry finish. Some astringency from hop bitterness extract. Not as bad as the scores would suggest. The Brewer is doing an awesome job considering no real hops.

Sibarh (140) - Białystok, POLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Kolor - złocisty, klarowny. Piana - drobniutka, średnio wysoka, trwała. Zapach - wyraźny słodowo-chmielowy. Smak - średni słód, spory chmiel, średnia słodycz, średnia goryczka. Poprawny lager do gaszenia pragnienia.

dnicolaescu (1090) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JAN 19, 2015
CAN 33 CL. Light malty aroma, some harsh sulphur. The flavour starts rather watery, yet with a certain creaminess in the body, light sweetness, light but harsh bitter finish.
