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.

Thank you! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ Borefts 2015. Day 1. Clear golden, little white head. Nose is bitter flowers & candy. Taste is hugely sweet corn, candy bread, sugar, sweet flowers. Oily body. No unpleasant beers, good for a pale lager. Shockingly good for an African pale lager. Neat.

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.)
