COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stella Premium is Egypt's contribution to the global beer community. Launched on 11th September 1997, Stella Premium has put Egypt back on the International beer map and raised Egyptian brewing to a new international standard. The longer brewing time gives it a higher alcohol content of 5% and more flavour. It is richer, darker and sweeter. A dream come true for beer lovers in Egypt.

Bottle. I found this hard to find in Egypt but finally tracked it down in Cairo. Pours a nice golden color with an off-white head. Distinct bitter flavor that is just right in balance with the hops and malts. Decent beer.

NosirIwont (2008) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2004
Bottle. Deep golden colour. Ugly grey-white head, which (fortunately?) disappears quick. Strange ricy, milky aroma, which not only smells icky, but also interrupts the flavour (not that it’s a great loss); sharp bitterness and alcohol.

This I liked and was impressed with aroma and lingering taste. To me it tasted slightly sweet, but not over the top. Left a bitterness in the mouth, but was ok. Good stuff.

JorisPPattyn (8098) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2003
Clear amber. Head white-transparant, nearly immediately gone. Disparate bubbling. Nose of alcohol, grain, sugar, oxydised. Bitter flavour, hoppy, perfumed, on top of caramel malt. Not bad, but it tastes more top-fermenting than lager. Retronasal more bitterness, less agreable, long lasting. Rather well-bodied. Fizzy despite little carbonation. Bitterness at tongsides keeps going on in the aftertaste. Egyptian beer - well, they were amongst the first in history. Yet I expected the worst. It's definitely better than that.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2003
[6.4%ABV] Nice golden colour. Slightly alcoholic and very sweet. This reminds me of a Danish discount drunkard beer.

You may wonder why a porter loving Swede is rating these light Egyptian lagers. I wonder myself.

It’s very nice
