Pinball (12401) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2010
can, prvoided by rasmus who brought it home from egypt.
clear yellow, small white head.
aroma is dry, citrussy, a little hoppy. very faint alc sensed too.
flavor is boozy, flowery, corn, ends bitter, not cloying, but certainly not tasty either.

Plovmand (8630) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2010
Can shared by Pinball. Clear yellow with a medium white head. Light fruity aroma with notes of sweet malt and cereal. Sweet malty, fruity and light hoppy flavour. More drinkable than first thought. Ends up light hoppy bitter.

gyllenbock (9977) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2009
Can in Cairo.

The color was bright, gold-like. Large white foam which disappeared quickly.

Thought that the scent contained some corn and weak tones of fruit. Also some alcohol. The taste was sweet with hints of fruits and malt, weak bitterness. It all ended with a hefty dose of alcohol in the aftertaste. The beer seemed pretty thin, despite the percentage.

Ungstrup (38582) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2009
Bottled. A light golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of alcohol and flowers. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and alcohol, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25055) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2009
Can 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Clear golden with tiny impurities and a white head. Aroma of brewing cereal and alcohol. Medium body, slightly fusty, brewing cereal and a chemical twist. Roaring alcohol in the finish. 230909

yespr (48087) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2009
50 cL can. Pours clear and pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is cornish and mild alcohol presence. Cornish and alcohol flavoured. No bitterness, alcohol and malt flavoured finish.

Finn (8257) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2009
Flaske 0,33l brakt hele veien fra Egypt av Christina. Hjertelig takk! Gyldenbrun farge. Et ok luftig skum som varer noen minutter. God aroma med litt frukt & malt. Brukbar fylde. Beskrevet som "lager" på flaska men dette er en divisjon eller to over. Svakt fruktige innslag i smaken - hvor en tydelig merker alkoholen.

Bottle at Hurghada Airport, Egypt. Another dodgy Heineken product... Yellow body, sweet nose. Taste is also sugary and malty. Didn’t know this was a malt liquor at the time but makes sense in hindsight. Punchy and pretty foul.

heavy (2911) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 28, 2008
21/11 0.33 l bottle my mum brought from Egypt, thanks. My first beer from there. It poured golden body with small head. Fine malty aroma with an alcohol punch. Surprisingly, some lemony hops show up here as well. Pretty light flavor, balanced between sweet malt and bitter spices, alcohol or whatever. Thinner in body with low carbonation, finishes quickly. Quite fine for what it is (although as of some hops can be considered as an ESL), simple, pleasant and easily drinkable, but too boring to be a good beer.

Marko (6163) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2008
Bottle courtesy of heavy (thanks!), shared with him and ogivlado. Didn’t expect much from this one and didn’t get much. Gold body, small white heat. Alcohol, heavy maltiness and some lemon in the nose. The taste is quite light and mouth puckeringly dry, but with noticable alcohol burn, light maltiness. Not as terrible as it might’ve been so that’s a plus. It’s not a great beer but this isn’t the worst malt liquor you can get and hey, my first Egyptian rating.
