12oz bottle at this little Ethiopian spot at 14th and P Streets NW in DC. For those who don’t know, DC has a thriving Ethiopian community and I am just getting around to trying their beer. Pour a clear gold with some sudsy, sticky white head. Nose of honey, wet flour, light dough, hay, grass. Flavor is the same, sweet, malty, some heavy honey, white bread, hay. Clean, smooth finish. Not bad at all.

Fluffy white head over big-bubbled yellow golden beer. Straw, grassy, dusty grass. Faintly wet hay, some dry, not-too-sweet malts. Very malty, sweetness comes out more in force warming up. Light to watery, very slightly sticky MF. Less sweet than the other Ethiopian beer, but not necessarily better. Thanks to the V. Brothers and their mystery supplier

bytemesis (3076) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Bottle - thanks Keren! Pours pale yellow with a small fizzy white head that dissipates quickly with a bit of lacing. Aroma is sweet corn syrup, grain, grass. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and light grassy bitter. Light body. Too sweet for a pale lager.

Bottle and Draught. This is the most popular beer in Ethiopia and the football team they sponsor is the league leader. If you are traveling to the land of injera and shiro brace yourself for the dragon slayer.

Grzesiek79 (3175) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 5, 2013
Średnie piwo, ale jak na egzotykę w miarę ok. Piana tworzy się i ma aspirację do trwalszej jej obecności na piwie. Finisz trochę wytrawny. Chmiel się także nieznacznie wyczuwa

zvikar (3371) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel Florentin. Thanks DSG. Pours shiny yellow with a small head, aroma of honey, butter, corn, flavor of malt, nice bitterness, a bit bizarre, light bodied

12oz bottle at the awesome Ethiopian restaurant Ghenet in Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY. Seriously, if you’re in the area, go. Clear golden color with a nicely formed white head and some lacing. Honey, grass, and grain on the aroma; rather typical. The flavor is standard, with average sweetness and mild bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel and fairly light body. A fine enough beer for what it is, but come on, I’m a beer snob and I can’t drink this. At least I ticked a rare new country.

tomer (1647) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2012
At a tasting, thanks DSG, a little hazy gold colour, sawn wood and cardboard with a hint of spice, coarse bitterness but otherwise quite diluted with a light sweetness and a touch of nuttiness. Just bad.
