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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle brought from Egypt by a colleague. Pours clear golden with stable white head. Clear aroma of yeast and less-than-seuperior malt, with some hoppy notes. Sweetish, estery flavour with malty notes and bitter, hoppy touches. Mild, etsery aftertaste. Drinkable and perhaps enjoyable on a hot summer’s day in Egypt but otherwise rather dull. Still, a valuable country tick.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale, clear, lively lager with a thick frothy head. Smell is a touch sour. Taste does have a slight citrusy twist but it’s very slight. It’s a fairly basic lager but in hot conditions it does the job when cold if you’re just looking for something crisp and refreshing.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just returned home after a short business travel in Egypt, and therefore will rush to my first review of Egyptian beer. As expected, it was no big surprise to taste beers from this Muslim country that most serves soft drinks as Coca Cola, Sprite and Seven Up. Is it contrary to the juice is Egypt a wonderland with a large repertoire of virtually every imaginable fruit which I greatly appreciate about the breakfast.
Stella Lager is the beer you see most often in Egypt, but only in hotels and restaurants, because as mentioned before, the country is Muslim and therefore cost of beer in the hotels a little more than they do on the Danish restaurants. Stella is a lager with a white durable foam, moderately malty aroma and a comfortable hoppy bitterness in the end. It reminds a lot about Heinekens common lager, and the brewery is also part of Heineken, so it might explain the great similarity. It is quite a common thirst quenching and refreshing lager, but it should be for reasons other than Stella Lager who get a beer rater to travel to Egypt. The culture, history, and not least the food is definitely worth a visit - but not beer. It is quite ordinary and something similar can be found all over the world.
