Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a clear, deep golden with a tall, dense and fairly stable head. Discreet, malty aroma with a touch of metal. Medium-bodied with extremely and stickingly sweet malts. No bitterness. Sticky and out of balance. Tasted at The Axum Cafe in San Francisco. 210307

Oakes (12398) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
Bottle from an Ethiopian grocer in the Jerusalem market. Slightly amberish golden colour. The aroma is fairly heavy on the adjuncts. Light grainy taste. Thins out at the end. Otherwise, an ok macrobrew.

bhensonb (10937) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bottle from Big Star in Seattle. Pours brassy gold with a big foamy white head. Aroma is warm, sweet, corny. Flavor is sweet and lightly corny. Itís not bad compared to Bud, but itís sweetish and a little bready. Wash down food - yes. Drink for enjoyment - eh!

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2010
bottle with dinner one night in DC. Deep burnished gold colour with a thin white head. The nose is lightly oxidized with a touch of caramel and some fresh, bready pale malt. Fairly sweet with a kiss of honeyish malt sweetness. A little bit of light sweet almost tropical malt flavour. Itís okay but awfully sweet and has a lot of age on it.

GT2 (8372) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 4, 2009
330 mL sweeet bottle into pint glass. Sampled at Dukem in DC. Pours a pale yellow with a small, temporary white head that dissipates quickly but leaves some good lacing at parts. Aroma is apple cider vinegar, apple juice, white sugar, and a huge wallop of clover honey. Taste is very sweet: tons of raw cane sugar, clover honey, and some metallic/grainy malts. Cloying sweetness overtakes everything eventually. Went great with the spicy Ethiopian food though.

Benzai (8140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, small white head. Smell lightly malts, raisins somehow and weird fruityness. Taste lightly malts, again some weird fruityness and fruitpeel. Donít really know what to think about this. Doesnít taste like any other pale lager Iíve ever tasted. Weird, though not necessarily bad.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle at a tasting. Thanks eyes_wide_shut. Clear golden with no real head. Aroma of cereals, sugar, alcohol, honey and carob notes. A rather sweet flavor of weird cereals and honey. Light-bodied. Strange and unpleasant.
