2.25/5  rDev -12.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Tasted in Taba, Egypt.

Typical lager appearance, pale golden with bubbly head that quickly disappears. Level of carbonation very high.

Start spritzy, sweetish. Body light, malty with a growing hoppy note. God knows what kind of hops it is. Finish bitter, aftertaste somewhat stale.

Not recommended to assertive travelers. Will pass as a thirst-quencher only.

Purchased and sampled in Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt, this brew comes in a green 33cl bottle with a straight neck and a gold and blue label with a five-pointed star above the name in Arabic and English. Ingredients conformed to the purity law. The freshness date was illegible.

Poured a clear, pretty standard gold under a one finger white head that fades quickly to patches of film and a decent collar, leaving a few lace strings. The nose is mild and grainy - uninspiring, but not repulsive either. The mouth is light and very (soda quality) prickly - almost painful. We start with a soggy malt opening, followed by a touch of spice and metallic hops. Slightly dry finish. It's a decent brew designed for a hot climate and not making a whole lot of other claims. It will do.
