Gold and blue can with a gold, stylised Central or South-American Indian. Lots of gold, I guess that works for the city of gold. Not sure why the Egyptians brew an El Dorado beer, but I guess it's all marketing, right?

Pale sickle lemon yellow colour, with a decent firm head of close-bubbled white foam. Pretty reasonable lacing. The head retention is also pretty good.

Slight organic/barnyard smell on the nose, with a hint of sour citrus. Mellows out later to an unpleasant grape juice aroma. Not great.

Slightly sour, yeasty palate, which is very thin and not very well integrated or developed. Dissipates very quickly to a watery, slightly spritzy nothingness. Not much to recommend the palate on this one. Mouthfeel is fizzy, and ultimately it just gets annoying, unsettling your stomach.

Not a great brew, this one - very bland, very watery, not much character. The fizziness is over the top by the end, and unless you're looking for a tasteless beer that's likely to give you a bloated stomach, stay away...
