I’m a Hefe fan so the hazy appearance of this beer in the glass had me drawn in. However it really lacked flavor. It finished rather clean, dry on the palate (I prefer sweet). The best part is the insane warning label

Found by the bottle at Addis Red Sea, an Ethiopian restaurant in Boston. It was crisp and good with the restaurant’s spicy lamp. High in carbonation, there was little aroma. It was a great palate cleanser and tasted better as the meal went on. Not one I’d drink by itself; a little too selzer water for me.

Pale gold, small white head. Light sweet corn nose. Slightly sweet palate, mildly hopped. Better than expected

Bottle bought in Paris at an African shop. At first I was a bit skeptical: beers from hot countries usually do little more than quench your thirst. But I was pleasantly surprised by the slightly sweet taste. Quite a good mouthfeel actualley. This beer deserves to be better known !

33cl bottle at Ethiopian resturant in Paris’ latin quarter. Sweet honey and spice. Hits the tonuge sweet like bread and honey and finishes with a bit of hops. good mouthfeel. A nice beer. went great with my food, although I hear that etiopian honey wine is even better.

(33cl bottle) A hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, honey, some spice. Taste is medium sweet, bread, caramel, light spice, light bitterness, line. Light-medium body. I imagine my rating is inflated somewhat by my expectations being exceeded, but I would order it again.

Attractive looking Pale Lager. Gold with a frothy head that stays around for a bit. Not much for aroma. A hint of vegetable-like hop in the flavour and additional bitterness finish. Takes a little getting used to the flavour but not difficult to drink.

At the Brickskeller, Wash DC, 9/2/05: Hazy yellow with a thin bubbly head. Extremely biscuity and sweet-malt based. Silky finish. Cookie in a glass. Not as bad as I’d feared.

I thought this smelled kind of strange, my cousin said it smelled like rice. Thin and bready sweet, overly carbonated, the lingering bad tasting finish caused me to make that "bad beer face". Bottle at the Brickcellar, D.C.

Got this in the discount bin at Chevy Chase. Pours gold with a splash of orange. Small white head. Aroma is bit better than expected. Aroma is honey and alcohol along with malt and perhaps some sugar. Taste is more honey and malt. Nice sweet taste. Surprisingly good! Mouthfeel is a bit sweet and carbonated. Finish is semisweet. Surprisingly good beer and rather sweet without being corny.
