2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2004 I must have had an old bottle last time, grassy aroma, watery texture and a decent finish. Old rating: I should have known better than to have tried this beer. It tasted spoiled and I doubt that it would have been much better fresh.

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.
