musinj6 (414) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Thanks to my friend dimi for bringing this back to me. Pours a clear pale with one finger head leaving small lacing. Toasted malt. Hint of sweet. Hint of bitter. Light clean herbal hop character . Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Medium finish that is bitter. Pretty decent for the style.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
330ml brown bottle. Pours clear gold, small white cap, even some lace rings. Nose has grain and dough and a bit of sweetness. The beer tastes grainy, a bit of leafy hops. Aftertaste is grassy, very low bitterness. Typical light body and high carbonation. Pretty generic but not offensive or flawed.

jmgreenuk (4922) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is dry malt and a little yeast. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a weak watery hop rather medicinal palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. I won’t be spending much time in Ethiopia !

JonMoore (1896) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2013
Bottle- gold colour with sparse white head. Sweetish, mildly hoppy aroma. Watery mouthfeel, just about inoffensive.

allmyvinyl (4219) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 27, 2013
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear yellow gold with a thin white head that soon disappears. Slightly stale aroma, but light malts, hay and lemon are there. Taste’s OK too, nothing special. Pretty standard lager beer.
