The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also, but not much foam. Aroma sourish and a bit sweet. Tastes washy, a bit malty, finish a little bit drier. Very drinkable and good lager!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very pale yellow with a little sticky heady; a little hazy. Very dusty, but a strong alcohol flavor, reminding me of drinking a church wine, where a little on the tongue hits all the day down the hatch; a little peppery at the back of the tongue. Finish of canteloupe (I’m very pleased to see that Per notes melon flavors too!). Adequate mouthfeel. After all that Eritrea has come through over the past few decades, I gave it a tenth of a point more. It was the least I could do. (Bottle at Brickskellar, Washington, D.C.)

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy pale yellow with a foamy snow white head. Quite sweet brewing mashy aroma with grainy and creamy notes and not much bitterness. Sweet and rather sugary in the flavor as well. Grainy with some bitter hints in the end. Pretty fresh and not too bad, but thin bodied and bland.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
330mL bottle shared by RobertDale, thanks Bob. My favorite part of this beer is the vintage appearance. When Bob pulled this out I thought we were about to drink some 70s German berliner weisse. It looks like the only bottles and label makers available in Eritrea were donation from retired German equipment. More importantly, I had no idea there was a country named Eritrea. Apparently, its only been a country is 1991. And the beer, well its a sulfuric mess, burning match kind of sulfur. Eh, I could not drink this stuff. If this was my only choice of beer I would be teetotaler.
