Bottle thanks to Leighton at Jack and Leightons birthday pleasantries, 13/04/13. Clear pale blonde with a thin off white head that dissipates to a film. Nose is bland pale malts, light citrus, ash, piss. Taste comprises pale malt lite, sugars, very faint caramel, thin thin thin and bereft of anything much. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry finale. Bland and cack !

Big thanks to Mrs Leighton for scoring this pale lager whale. The pours gold with a tiny head. The aromas of piss, some artificial sweetness. Candy corn and stewed apple. The taste is pretty similar. More apple. Artificial and nasty tasting. Pretty much what youd expect. Light body, fizzy. Overall, not good.

Bottle, thanks to Elena. It pours pale lagery yellow with a medium white head. The nose is sulphurous, grainy, light butter and corn. The taste is paper, grainy, watery, dough, cabbage and faint lemon. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. not much to it, but what there is I dont like...

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - APR 13, 2013
50cl bottle shared by Leighton at CBC Clerkenwell. It pours a clean golden color with a small white head. Aroma is fart, anus, poop in a grain field. Taste is skunked grains and cabbage. You can feel the mummy coming out of the glass. A cool egyptian tick that comes at a price.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2013
1) Part bottle decanted by waiter, first night in Egypt. Bright gold with a loose bathfoam collar. Pleasant grass and rabbit tray aroma, at first. Then metal and honey. Aggressive popcorn, metallic, hay-like cardboard taste..disjointed bitterness. 42427. 2) Can. Slick of head. Revolting glue, almond and root vegetable aroma. Nothing but envelope adhesive and corn on the..ahem, palate. Tipper. Piss poor. 2232. 3) Chilled bottles upturned theatrically by waiter into Luxor weizens in Naama Bay. Crisp and refreshing with candy, spun sugar and weak grassy notes. Enjoyable. 535310.

larsga (7470) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 7, 2013
Big white head. Clear pale yellow body. Light sugary aroma with vague candy notes. Dry mealy sugary perfumy taste. Mid-to-light body. Mealy mouthfeel. Dry mealy vaguely fruity aftertaste. Well. Not bad, but not really enjoyable, either. (0.5l can, gift from the in-laws.)

DanielBrown (4474) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2013
Bottle from my sisters holiday in Charm and Shake. Thanks Lorn! Smells like treacled miller, with a force fed ferret on the side. I can conjure the scent of swimming pool - chlorine etc. Taste is soft, sweet malt. Almost sickly, but water saves the day (like Whitney Houston). I doubt it.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle kindly shared by larsga. Tall, shiny white head. Pale yellow colored body. White sugar and fruit candy to the nose. Watered down and light. Lemonade flavored. Not really malty, a certain sourness only. Traces of bittering hops deep down below. Short sappy lemon finish. Not far from awful.

KnutAlbert (6750) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2013
Bottled. Very pale. Not much aroma. Soft malt, a little fruit, citrus lozenges.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4971) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 19, 2013
I thought it was ok on a hot day in Egypt. It is another typical lager from a macrobrewery. Decent body and head of foam. The taste was fine but nothing special. If youre in Egypt this is one of the most widely available beers, it gets the job done but is nothing to write home about.
