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.

330 ml bottle. Golden yellow colour with medium white head. Aroma of malt nad corn, taste about the same with some sharp notes. No good, not horrible

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

zvikar (3408) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - APR 19, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks DSG. Pours yellow hazy with no head, aroma of sweet caramel, rounded, flavor is sour and dry, bizarre bitterness, light bodied

DSG (5812) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Hazy pale yellow with no head. Aroma of cooked vegetables, cereals and something I cant put my finger on.. Slightly sweetish and sourish flavor, vegetal, with faint plastic notes and a hint of bitterness. Light-bodied. Unpleasant.

beerandbeyond (682) - ISRAEL - MAR 29, 2013
Bottle sample. Hazy yellow color with a small white head. Bizarre aroma, bread with some orange and garbage water. Dusty, grainy, some glue notes and low bitterness. Light bodied and not good.

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2013
12oz bottle consumed at this little Ethiopian spot at 14th and P Streets NW in DC. Pours a clear, light gold with some fading, white head. Nose is mild, hay, yeast, grass, white bread. Flavor is malt, hay, white flour. Watery finish. I liked the St Georges significantly more.

Jow (2156) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2012
My wife and is eating around the world in NYC project is underway, and we found ourselves at ashway ethopian on 107th St. They had 4 Ethiopian brews in bottles this was one of two I hadnt previously had. Pours quite dirty Boone and quite hazy, with white head. Nose of light hops and fruit. Tastes of grains, bananas, wet cardboard, grass, citrus, and light grape fruity hops. Not bad better then I thought was fine with spicy dishes I got.

Hazy yellow color with pillowy white head. Lemon and lemongrass on the nose. Creamy palate with a nice sweetness to pair with spicy food.
