12 Oz bottle. Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Mild aromas, nutty and mineral. Flavor is mild sweet at first, then nutty and minerally. Finishes with a lingering, herby bitterness. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and sharp carbonation. Overall, not a very good lager.

Back to back Ethiopian treats. The only real thing that made this good is that the Meta I had before tasted even worse. This one was drinkable at least. Bottle at Zenebech with some excellent food.

freretoc (1723) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 16, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl il y a quelques années dans un restaurant Ethipien à Lausanne, un souvenir marquant en ce jour de Juin, parce que’on avait super bien mangé et que cette bière ultra basique de la lager, collait parfaitement avec la bouffe goutue et épicée ethiopienne qui déglinguait

Bottle from Casablanca Brasserie 171014. Mt first ever beer from Ethiopia and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. While it doesn’t set the world on fire this beer was much better than I expected.
