2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves only a few specks of lace. Aroma is cereal grains and hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a clean hoppy bitterness. This one surprised me a little. Quite a decent lager.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
11.2 oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow with a large white head with large bubbles. It has a metallic aroma and the aroma of hay with some grass and cereal. The taste is floral, metallic and maybe slightly herbal with a nice hop aftertaste, it has a nice creamy mouthfeel. I enjoyed this beer it may not be the best but it’s good enough.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
11.2 oz bottle. Has a label that looks like it was pasted on with a kindergartner’s gluestick. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a small white soapy head that falls into a ring and thin film of foam in about two seconds. Aroma is vomity, grainy. Taste is sweetish but it has a welcome bitter hop edge. Tastes a little corny and metallic. Highly carbonated. Not good, but there’s a lot worse out there.

Bottle at Merkato in Los Angeles. Pours a dull yellow. Nice flavor. A little sweet, but decent hop bite. Mouthfeel is substantial for a lager. Went along nicely with the spicy food.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Flacher, schwach gehopfter Antrunk. Später getreidig, wobei hier sofort ein metallernes Fehlaroma aufkommt. Dann wässrig, nur noch wenig getreidig. Laff, wenig spritzig. Zum Ende trocken. Trinkbares, aber überaus langweiliges Bier. 10/6/9/5/12/6

This was my first Ethiopian beer. Harar is a cloudy yellow lager with strong smells of bread, yeast, and malt. The taste is relatively plain with a hint of sweetness, it can be characterized as medium bodied, with a full finish.
