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.

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.

Bought this beer at an Ethiopian restaurant in Washington D.C. It really complemented the meal rather well, had a cleansing affect on the palate, nice and somewhat creamy (which is quite odd for a lager). If I had this beer on its own, I don’t think it would have fared as well, quite bland, a little to grassy, but only on its own. Takes on the flavor of whatever you are eating.

This is a nice, clean lager that tastes more like a standard lager than the Ethiopian Harar or Meta. It looks similar to Harar, being a deep straw yellow, very faintly hazy, with a fairly big, creamy white head that slowly shrinks and leaves some light, creamy lace. The aroma is light and sweet but pleasant, mostly light dough with honey and a hint of flowers. The taste is also light but quite pleasant. It’s a bit sweet with no bitterness, a clean flavour of apple with dough and honey and a hint of mineral, plus a lightly noticeable, but pleasant alcoholic warming quality. It’s smooth and drinkable.
