Bottle. Typical pale gold lager pour, with slight receding head. Faint hops, touch of wheat and corn. Not a lot going on in the taste or aroma, but it’s inoffensive and refreshing for an evening in Cairo. Kind of all I hope for with such lagers. Idiosynkrasie (7435) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2015
330ml can [Thanx Tim and Torsten!]. Clear golden colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, snow white head. Strawy, grassy, hoppy aroma, hints of corn and protein. Taste is dry, strawy, minimally soapy. grassy hoppy. Rather clean and straight. Grumbo (2848) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2015
Can brought back to UK by friends and consumed on a sunny English afternoon in vain attaempt to mirror Egyptian climate. Poured a clear light gold colour with a white head, quickly dissipating. Aroma is moderately malty and grassy. Moderate sweetness, with a metallic bitter finish. Thin lager texture. Had worse. Manslow (1631) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2015
Kolor jasnozłoty, klarowne. Aromat lekko chmielowy, kwaskowe, smak słodki, wyczuwalny alkohol.Słabe piwo. rgf001 (324) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 28, 2015
As its twin with a bit less alcohol, Sakara, aromas of grainy malt and flowery noble hop, probably from oil extracts. Perfect appearance with abundant head for a 4% lager. The bitterness is not perfectly clean, tastes exactly like bitterness extract. Below this bitterness one can taste grainy maltiness. Dry finish. Some astringency from hop bitterness extract. Not as bad as the scores would suggest. The Brewer is doing an awesome job considering no real hops.

CAN 33 CL. Light malty aroma, some harsh sulphur. The flavour starts rather watery, yet with a certain creaminess in the body, light sweetness, light but harsh bitter finish. bierkoning (13272) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
