Bottle Generously provided by DSG. Thanks! Pours a yellow golden topped by a white film. The nose is full of sweet corn, fusels and mild skunked notes. The mouth feel is surprisingly slick, with a sugary sweet flavor. Very papery and sugary, and almost no bitterness to balance. Not too drinkable. DSG (15301) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 1, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-golden color with a medium white head. Grainy aroma with notes of alcohol. Sweet flavor with strong alcohol taste that’s getting stronger in the finish. After the first few alcoholic-shocking sips it gets a bit easier to drink (I still don’t think I’ll be able to finish it though). Light-bodied. Rather crappy but I’ve had a lot worse. Thanks David for bringing me this beer from Egypt. armando629 (2456) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 7, 2007
That beer was an attack for me .It has a very alcoholic flavour. Don’t drink it in the warm, because you can feel dizzy very quickly. emotv (353) - Izmir, TURKEY - OCT 28, 2007
I drink this beer at a bar in Al Zamalek. High Alchol beer with a classical golden colour. Not a very good beer but drinkable. jazz88 (2684) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Can in Luxor, Egypt. Golden color with a white head. Dusty aroma and flavor. Rather painful to drink with medicinal flavors. A true drain pour.

Can. This was sure better than the Luxor a friend brought back from an Egypt trip. Atleast this one had some flavor, not great, but not bad either. Had a decent appearance and I really didn’t find the alcohol overpowering. Did have some caramel and fruit flavor to the finish. omhper (25808) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2006
Bottled. Clear golden. Diesel aroma. Plenty of grain and alcohol Fusels mixed with rice and syrup. Finishes burning with alcohol. tenghave (404) - Taastrup, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2006
Pilsner (33 cl. dåse) dog med frygtelig spritsmag. austinpowers (2831) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Kedelig egyptisk øl med megen kulsyre, som er udrikkelig.
Meister Max has a LOT of alcohol flavor - sort of like drinking a shot of vodka. At 8%, I didn’t expect much other than rubbing alcohol, and that’s what I got. My suggestion to Al Ahram Brewing is to mask the alcohol with more malt and sweetness so the beer is more palatable. There’s room for improvement. yngwie (17261) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2005
As an aside, I laughed when I saw the bottle read "serve cold". Indeed. The thinness and wateriness combined with the brutal 8% abv makes for a dangerous payload.
Bottled. Pale golden with a small white head. Some sweet maltiness and fruitiness in the aroma. Flavor is sweet malt, some fruits and warming alcohol. More warming than you might expect from an egyptian beer. Too thin, with some hoppiness in the finish. Much better than expected, but not a winner. (051231)
