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. NosirIwont (2530) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2004
Bottle. Deep golden colour. Ugly grey-white head, which (fortunately?) disappears quick. Strange ricy, milky aroma, which not only smells icky, but also interrupts the flavour (not that it’s a great loss); sharp bitterness and alcohol. Winefly (60) - KEW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2004
This I liked and was impressed with aroma and lingering taste. To me it tasted slightly sweet, but not over the top. Left a bitterness in the mouth, but was ok. Good stuff. JorisPPattyn (10001) - Ursel, 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. omhper (25113) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 10, 2002
Golden coloured. Sweet with some alcoholic tones. Otherwise neutral. jbeer99 (31) - SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2001
You may wonder why a porter loving Swede is rating these light Egyptian lagers. I wonder myself.
