"GAAA!!! OK, this one was flat out bad. Mad Belikin Beer (1.7) seem like Pliny. More skunk and pee notes, and not really anything there to redeem it. Not even a passable summertime lawnmower beer."

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear straw yellow, lots of bubbles, thick if not long-lasting cream-buff head. Fruity, malty aroma is typical but inviting. Flavor is crisply malty and refreshing, with a strong and cider-like note of apple. Texture is somewhat firm, somewhat smooth, somewhat fizzy. Fair to middlin’, but drinkable. Those Ethiopians know how to brew.

Your basic pale lager. This one is a bit thicker on the tongue and sweeter than some. Tried in DC with Jess in 2014.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured this beer from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a very hazy, cloudy straw-gold color with a good-sized foamy off-white head that had pretty good retention, and decent cling and lacing. Its aroma had notes of barley, straw, and corn, and was not particularly good. The beer had a fairly strong bitter-sour grainy flavor with some notes of straw, yeast, and barley, and a bit of corn. It was an average-to-thick beer with a dry, chalky mouthfeel and aftertaste and was somewhat on the watery side. Overall a harsh beer, and my first from Ethiopia.

The head is unstable, the body blond. It smells dattel, sweet-malty, a bit sweet, milky, malty, dusty. The taste is metal, a bit malty. In the aftertaste plastic-malty.
