Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel.Thanks DSG. Murky pale golden, white film. Sweet, molasses, corn aroma, generic bitter taste, something artificial tho. Light body, rather soft carbonation, bitter-sweet finish. OK.

OK, so it’s been eight years since I tasted this beer, but at one time I drank quite a lot of it. When I arrived in Eritrea for the first time in 2002, the country was still recovering from Ethiopian occupation a decade earlier, to such an extent that the beer didn’t even have a label. There was something very nourishing about drinking a beer from an unadorned brown bottle in a country that hardly had electricity. My score for appearance (4/5) is for the sight of a few mls of beer hitting the concrete floor of the bar you were in - it was custom to pour a little onto the floor to make sure it foamed up. Foam = drink, no foam = send it back for another one because this one had gone pear-shaped in the production process. When there was foam, Asmara Lager was a very clean, crisp lager beer and one I never tired of drinking.

Several bottles, 33cl, back in the 90s. I was in asmara 3 weeks on a IT infrastructure job, and even back then I found pleasure in beer, and new exotic beer. The brew was somewhat similar to faxe fad, a little less bitter than HOF, and a little bit smoother. Also very slightly sweeter, but it is more or less just like any other macro lager. At the time i found it pretty good, as it was definetly drinkable. I ususally only rate from notes, but this is an exception - i’m not going back to asmara, eritrea anytime soon, although it is a nice town, located on a plateau on the mountain with very nice climate due to the high location.
