2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33 cL bottle at the Animal Kingdom. Pours gold with a thin, off-white head. Smells of wet grass, corn, and caramel. The flavor is sweet and mildly bitter. The mouthfeel is light to medium, smooth, and clean. Overall, this is a surprisingly flavorful lager, and relatively easy to drink. Not that bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. This beer is mild and not very flavour intensive. But it’s still good, very enjoyable

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Basically no head, clear light regular pale lager yellow. Sweet corn, lots of green veg, and a chemical aroma. Flavor is thankfully less oppressive than the aroma with a weird sweet-sour grassy quality. Thin and watery body.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draft in Addis Ababa. Amber pour. Slightly malty nose and taste. Typical quaffing macro beer that is a touch above some of the others available.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draught @ Sheraton Addis.
I always dread trying the local beers in Africa, but let’s try at least one.
It pours very pale, with little foam. There’s hardly any nose, but al least it’s fresh. Palate is flat, taste the corn, some wet cardboard. Hardly any bitters.
Better than drinking the water I guess...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
8/10/12. 12oz bottle from the gas station by my house - Stop N Shop or something of that sort - it’s a Sunoco. Clear golden pour with a small soapy white head. Light corn chips and pale malts in the aroma with a sweet corny flavor as well. Not nearly as bad as the last two Ethiopia beers I just cracked.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear pale yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is mainly sweet grain and corn without much of a hop profile. Flavor is light up front with sweet grain that is joined by corn that has a mellow finish.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
from Bier-Bienne - translucide pale golden beer with a poor head retention; aroma of plastic, corn and solvent; moderate malt backbone and pretty tart; very harsh bitterness and a rough corny and paperboard-like finish - urgh !

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at Nile Ethiopian Restaurant, Orlando. Pours pale and clear. Aroma of corn, and a little cardboard. Flavor isn’t offensive. Pretty typical, and exactly what you would expect. Actually, a little more fresh than I was expecting, but very little character in any area. Lots of corn.
