Clear yellow gold hue. Small frothy white head. Sweet, rusty nose. Pale malts, sweet, sugary, tastes like its full of adjuncts. Nothing special here, although it is pretty good considering where its from. Lightly herbal hops in the sweet finish. Yes, Ethiopian beer, oh yes.

What's up with the label on this? It looks like a monkey is either sitting on, or doing something unspeakable to a green tree branch. i dunno which. it has some interesting spicy/fruity aroma to it that i can't immediately identify. heh, maybe it's the tree branch the monkey was sitting on. It has a nice cloudy coppery color to it. the taste isn't that bad actually. nice light maltiness to it. it's on the watery side, but much better than i had anticipated.

I thought this one was pretty tasty. Poured a slightly hazy golden color, with a short white head. Aroma is malty and lagered. Flavor is a touch past it's prime, but malty and sweet. Carbonation is mild. A bit of estery fruitiness, but very subtle. Hops are mild, and taste like Saaz. Mild breadiness. Flavor is very nice. I'm a fan. The haziness makes me a little wary, but besides that, it's great.

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.

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.
