Pyrmir (3831) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2015
On tap at the airport in Addis. Tasted like a german pilsner, fairly sweet and malty but with more hops and higher bitterness. Not too bad

DSG (7623) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 18, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Mom for this bottle! Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, a bit of hay and a faint grassy hint. Sweetish grainy flavor with a papery hint and faint bitterness in the finish. Light-bodied. Pretty non-offensive and drinkable.

MarkoNm (1108) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours a light brown color, topped with small white head. Malty aroma, lots of grassy notes and slightly skunky. Taste is sweet, with again lots of grassy notes. Not nice. I donít know if itís gone bad, or just is bad.

Borresteijn (5186) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 20, 2014
33cl Bottle from an Ethiopian shop. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of some sweet malts, just light floral, light skunky, paper. Flavour is medium sweet, light malty, hint of sourness, paper, light dryness. Light bodied. Not the worst lager, expected less.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5215) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Sampled from an 11.2 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark golden amber color with a huge creamy white head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish and tangy with notes of sour marsh and citrus. The flavor was tangy and sweet bread, sour mash and a hint of honey and citrus. Medium length tangy and sweet beady finish. Medium body. Blah.

Literal smell of farts. Fizzy gold pour. Mostly water and vile regurgitation.

From a bottle in an Ethiopian restaurant in Denver (Abbisinia). Nice white head, some lacing. Smells and tastes very malty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
