Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Nice blend of hops and malt Appearance- A very enticing golden color with a small white head Taste- A great blend of malt and hops Palate- Light bodied beer with moderate carbonation Overall- First beer from Ethiopia. If all are this quality then I can’t wait for my next one from this country.

Bottle at mpls ethiopian restaurant. I couldn’t drink it. MB was OK with it, so I give it more than 1s, but perhaps my lowest rating ever.

"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."

Cybercat (4084) - Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2014
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.

Derek881 (1119) - Riga, LATVIA - JAN 30, 2014
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.
