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.

JorisPPattyn (7716) - 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.

[6.4%ABV] Nice golden colour. Slightly alcoholic and very sweet. This reminds me of a Danish discount drunkard beer.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 17, 2005
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.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Noticeably darker than Stella Lager. It’s amber colored. Alcohol notes are present, given its 6.4% abv. Strong, like Meister Max. Alcohol could be better hidden. Not bad but there’s better. Located this beer at Drinkie’s - The Bottle Shop (see Places).
