The Egyptian classic. Asking for ‘a beer’ here will get you Stella. Anywhere that sells alcohol in Egypt will sell Stella. Some pubs only sell Stella. Brewed by al-Ahram as are most other things. ABV 4.5%.
It usually pours well. The colour is a fairly standard yellowy-orange. Quite like Tennent’s. The head has a bad habit of collapsing after a few minutes. Smells just like beer, malt and hops and a bit of sweetness.
Tastes reasonably full-bodied, a wee bit sweet. Nothing to write home about really, but it’s pretty good.
It’s basically the local equivalent of Tennent’s – I think Stella’s pretty decent. 7/10.
