Bottle. Honey and grain aroma and taste to match. Metallic and slightly bitter, grassy flavor is coupled with a hint of dust.

Koelschtrinker (13105) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
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.

Very malty/yeasty. Slightly sweet palate too. Got this at Bert’s Bierwinkel in Utrecht.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 6, 2011
Pale golden pour with a touch of haziness. Nose is a little bit grassy with a clean, pale malt character. A touch of metallic character that I don’t care for at all. Despite that, the beer is actually pretty clean with a faint bitterness on the back of the palate. Pretty decent pale lager.

Bottled (4.5 %, from bierzwerg.de). Yellowish golden colour with a small bubbly head. Aroma is malts, grains, some mild rubbery and metallic notes as well. Flavour is sweet malts along with some slight grainy and rubbery notes. Smooth carbonation.

Nickls (2001) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2011
Bottle. Light hazy yellow that has some sediment, with a thin white head that doesn’t last long at all. Almost hefe-like aromas and flavors at points with some lemon, hay, banana and a light sweet finish. Lightish body that has softer carbonation. Some sourness as well, and just OK drinking. Washed down some Ethiopian food pretty well.

culchiem (3050) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle. Light golden colour with a thin fluffy head. Aroma of light sweet malt with some hay. Thin watery flavour with a slightly metallic finish.

mansquito (4207) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Labilela Ethiopian Restaurant 11.2oz ($5): Pours a strange color for a pale lager: kins of hazy light peachy color with a fine white head. Lots of grain and maltiness in the aroma. Actually can taste some of them hops in this beer. Has some strange notes that I really can’t explain, but none of them are bad. Not a watery pale lager. For a pale lager it really ain’t that bad. Ethiopia is lucky to have this (better than the crap Egyptians need to drink).
