On tap at Bole International Airport (Addis Ababa). Pale piss-like body with a fair white foamy head. Weak malty aroma with some hoppy hints. Thin, horrible malty/corny taste that ends with a bad metallic, rotten cereals finish. Avoid!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sample #2 of 4 in my African Pale Lager tasting. Pours a clear golden with a thinner fizzy airy white head 2.5. Aroma is lightly sweet with a nice bright fruity note. Pretty full flavored for a pale lager, a strange combination of sweet breadiness and strong bitterness, a touch metallic, a bit fruity, comes close to being German, big maltiness, just a touch of alcohol in the full finish. Medium bodied with a big heavy mouth-feel, nice fairly sharp spread out bit carbonation bubbles. This is pretty good.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw to light golden in color. Moderate off-white head. Dusty and musty malt mingles with form grassy and herbal hops. HInts of alcohol and medicine. Sweet flavors throughout. Initial grain, followed by some generic bitterness. Hint of malt actually wind in and out. Alcohol flavors are a bit too distracting for the actual heft of this one. This tastes like a 8+% malt liquor. Which is not necessarily a good thing.
