2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Compared to European Lager beer Standard this is poor. But I think, if you have nothing else to drink, go for it. At least it has got quite a clean palate and some freshness. Hops don’t grow in Eritrea, so they are hard to detect in this beer.

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.)

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.

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.

1.8 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.
