2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pretty similar to the Harar, this one does not have much body or character. Some malt, some hops, just nothing special.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Nisse666. BB 25-06-2013.
Dorée claire, col fin blanc.
Bouquet et profile de grains en dominance. Rien d’étonnant avec ce type de bières africaines. Malt pils avec une rondeur de maïs, sec et grains presque poussiéreux, monotone mais ce côté malté et grains reste agréable. Houblon est absent.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours yellow with a thin white head. Smells of creamed corn, some appley hints, skunky. Tastes sweet and chewy with some stray hoppy hints on the finish. There is a weird saccharine like taste on the finish.
