2.98/5  rDev +33%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Artificial lemon yellow colour, some coarse bubbled head which falls to a filmy ring. Some lacing.

Slightly sweet husky nose, a bit of selzer water, and maybe just a slight touch of citric lemon. Not a lot there on the nose, but it's not offensive.

Taste is a bit grainy also, pronounced medicinal alcohol, but not overpowering. It's actually not too bad, pretty refreshing and with some fullness and genuine character. It's not the greatest tasting beer, but it's reasonable and drinkable.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

500ml can served in an ordinary glass.

As far as I can remember, my first Egyptian beer.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color forming a medium white and bubbled head that dissipates quickly but not totally leaving few lacings only

S: Strong sweet malts and alcohol. Artificial and somehow plastic. Candy and a touch of citrus hops. Bready lager yeast profile

T: Sweet and booze. Strong notes of sweet malts, caramel malts, candy. Some artificial plastic notes can be also felt in the mouth. End is light bitter. Hops profile is citrus Heineken-like

M: Heavy, sweet and molasses body. Strong carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste

O: Low drinkability. Terrible Lager

Thanks to shivtim for bringing me this can from Egypt. Wow, an 8% beer from a country where drinking is generally frowned upon...cool! Pours yellow with a hint of orange. Lame little white head. Smells of fermented corn, ethanol, catty hops. Taste is of overripe oranges, squished corn cobs, lots of alcohol...hits fast and hard and in an unwelcome manner. Mouthfeel fairly harsh, watery but also thick..like cow spit. Might be a drain pour regularly, but im too lazy to get up. Not too good.

A 500ml can purchased at an Israeli super-market. All is written in english with no arabic. Only the brewery's name appears - not the country it is in. PC?

This one pours boring straw-yellow with a 2-finger white head that disappears quickly leaving no lace behind.

Nose has some grainyness and skunk-like aromas with faint herbal hops.

Taste is not good. alcohol is dominating the mouth, malt is barely noticeable and the hop bitterness is having a hard time coming through the alcohol fumes.

mouthfeel is lager-like, medium carbonation and light to medium body.
extremely short finish.

Well - didnt expect anything thus not disappointed. do not bother with this brew if you ever come near it.

Purchased and consumed in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, this one came in a green 33cl bottle with a bulge in the neck and a multi-colored label wiht the name across the middle, "Premium Quality" above, "lager Beer" below. All in English - no Arabic. Ingredients appear to conform with the purity law. Best before 08/06, I opened it on 12/22/05.

Pours a clear, bubbly standard gold under a very thin 1/4 finger off-white head that fades quickly to thin collar, leaving no lace. There is no discernible nose at first, then some sickly sweet malt and alcohol. The heavy but clean mouth is very well carbonated. The taste is best described as honey on bread tainted by a sprinkling of coffee grinds and a splash of pure alcohol. Too sweet, mixed with harsh bitter. While this is not as bad as its Russian cousins, it clearly aspires to join the ranks of the very worst.
