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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden body with a thin, almost non-existent, white head. No Skunk! Woohoo! Malty, slightly sweet, aroma with some toffee and honey. Thin to moderate body, surprisingly full. The flavor is quite malty with almost no hop character. I'm really wondering if this is what a well-kept, aged light lager tastes like. Not skunky or oxidized, but there is no hop character and an odd smoothness and thickness to the body. A truly interesting experience, especially considering what I was expecting. The world is so damn intriguing...

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.
