2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ Meskerem, an Ethoopian restaurant in Washington, D.C. Pours clear golden with small white head. Clear aroma of yeast and hops with a slight citric note. Bitter flavour of hops but, above all, metal. Sparse malty touches. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Boring. Not very well balanced. Won’t have another one.

Smell of metal. Dark brown colour, mid-brown head. Aroma of mämmi, sugar, burnt malt. Gross. Sweet. To be avoided.

Bottle at Epcot Center Morocco. Poured a blond hazy yellow with small white head that slowly faded. Some bready wheat-like aromas with a light hay-like graininess. Taste is grainy with a light metallic bitter that ends dry. Mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
As of this writing it ranks a 14 overall, but 90 in the pale lager category. I guess that shows what we think of pale lagers! Got a bottle in an Ethiopian restaurant. A lightly sweet lager that is perhaps a little more flavorful than the typical PL. The cool old label is the best thing about it. Drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy straw gold with a thin white head and lacing. It has a small aroma of biscuit, yeast, and pale malt, with a flavor of malt up front and a semisweet, crisp finish over a surprisingly smooth mouthfeel.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Hazy pale yellow with no head. Aroma of cooked vegetables, cereals and something I can’t put my finger on.. Slightly sweetish and sourish flavor, vegetal, with faint plastic notes and a hint of bitterness. Light-bodied. Unpleasant.
