Grumbo (630) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle from a world food store in Chelmsford. Clear pale gold colour with a white head. Slight malt aroma, with cereal. Quite high carbonation, light body. Not one of the better pale lagers.

Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 20, 2013
Rating from 2008. 33cl-bottle. Meine Flasche hat nur ein Bauchetikett ohne Zutaten oder MHD. Nur Name, Inhalt, Alkoholgehalt und Brauerei sind auf Englisch aufgeführt. Dunkelgelbe Farbe im Glas, würzig-alkoholisch-vergorener Geruch. Der Antrunk ist sehr getreidig-würzig und leicht süßlich. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier würziger und süßlicher mit einer interessant muffigen Note. Der Nachgeschmack ist leicht metallisch und ziemlich schnell verflogen. Dabei würzig-getreidig und leicht malzig-süßlich. Sehr süffig. --> Interessantes, exotisches Bier, aber für den deutschen Dauergebrauch eher weniger meins! 12,8,12,6,12,7 - 8,50

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 20, 2013
Une bouteille au Restaurant Menelik rue du Sauffroy à Paris. Cette bière a été bue à la bouteille car je mangeais avec mes mains et le verre aurait été trop sale. Une bière simple, commerciale, facile. Une bière qu’on boit dans un restaurant éthiopien pour la forme et pour le crochet à la rubrique Ethiopia.

dreamflower (598) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle shared with northropfrye. Thanks for this one!!! Ha. The best thing about this beer is the appearance, crystal clear and pretty, I kind of enjoy looking up at the bubbles from below, but the aroma is underwhelming, and the palate gets watery quickly and the taste is not awesome.

northropfrye (2315) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 25, 2013
Faint bready aroma. Clear yellow body with white head and surprising amount of lacing. Taste is sweet, and bitter, not too pronounced, a bit medicinal. Not horrible.

Nothing too exciting about this. Aromas of grain, corn, and some fruit. Similar flavours.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
0.33 L bottle shared by KnutAlbert. Coarse white foam head over a Smell of bright pale yellow body. Smells grass and boiled vegs. Light, candy sweet malt body. Some papery hops is noticeable. Oily to watery mouthfeel. Sugary ending.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty straw, dishwater like head, faint, lacks lacing.   Stale dried straw on the tongue, sweetened however.   Flat semi-sweet straw on the tongue.   Smells and tastes alike.   Pretty boring overall, and average.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Very average at least without fault, but also very boring.   If I was in Ethiopia, I would dig this over a Budweiser or other American macro swill.
