1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

Country #88. Bottle courtesy of Daniel Brown - cheers Dan. Nice big head on this. Not so great that I’m on the final day of Movember so that foamy head is now on my face. Smells of two pence pieces. Tastes like the shallow end at South Charnwood Leisure Centre - water, yes, but with a smorgasbord of cleaning fluids and other substances. Makes a decent moustache shampoo though.

50 cl. Many thanks to Frank for bringing it from Egypt. Keinerlei Geruch. Der Antrunk ist mild-wässrig, schön frisch. Der Hauptteil ist angenehm erfrischend, kaum Körper vorhanden. Simpel, aber gut erfrischend!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz can brought back to Serbia by my close friend Andy, so many thanks. Another odd but predictable national lager from a less than obvious beer drinking society. Perfectly innocuous pale sweet later, with some nice characteristics. refreshing and tasty while being wet carboard and sour grapes. I’m sure in context this is refreshing and fine but from a small can in Belgrade it just is an open question mark. I would enjoy trying this in the beer’s natural habitat soon.

Golden draft with thin white head. Tastes like a normal pilsner. Smooth and malty. No hops. Hard to even say anything good or bad about it

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
