Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, straw and hops. Malty flavour, sweet, light bitterness, wheat-like grainy touch. Malty finish, light bitter, light sweet. Not bad, not bad at all.

Cloudy, very opaque. Smells and looks like a nice wheat beer. Taste is malty, with honey and toasted notes. Very good with spicy fare, as Ethiopian food usually is or can be.

Bierkrug (2133) - - FEB 8, 2011
330 ml bottle in Sudan. Pours a pale yellow with short head. Aroma has some heavy spices in it that are hard to place, but pleasant. Taste is unlike the aroma and has a slight cardboard taste. Palate ends with some sourness.

Travlr (12329) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2009
Bottle at a tourist restaurant in Addis. Cloudy yellow with a rapidly disappearing white head. Aroma of bread of candy. Sweet taste with a slight bitter edge. Interesting but not great.

uncouth (3) - Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2008 does not count
I first experienced Bedele at a local Ethiopian restaurant and thought it was the perfect accompaniment to my spicy dibs dinner. I’ve had both the regular and the larger bottle size, the latter of which lasted me through the dessert. Slightly cloudy yellow color, malty taste with a subtle hint of honey. Just a great beer to go with any spicy meal.

ChrisTurner (206) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle -- Very pale, cloudy yellow (actually pretty similar in appearance to a Belgian white but without all that froth) with a small white head. Not much retention but a bit of lacing. Sweet malty aroma. Not a bad palate, with much more going on than I’m used to in a pale lager. Flavour is more malty sweetness with a little sourness at the end. Not at all bad.

Lunkie (1420) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2007
Murky yellow colour, poor head and lacing. Sweet hop spice aroma. Full malt hop flavour and smooth palate.
