Golden color no head filtered tastes like a lager I would drink it again when in Ethiopia

Rating #957 - February 7, 2014. $4.29 for a 330ml bottle from Sherbrooke 4.5%. Bought this for the country tick, #letsbehonest. Aroma is cereal grains, corn, light hoppy whiff. Taste is more of the same, grainy, bland, and bubbly. Medium-strong carbonation. Nothing to excite in the finish.

Looks like a light beer. Microhead stayed to the bottom, as little lacing. Flavour was a little wheaty, corny, malty, but average tasty. helped me knock off a country.

dfearnley (1187) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle to pint glass Aroma of wheat, bread, black pepper, and light yeast. Crystal clear yellow with moderate carbonation and a thin mottled white head. Taste is apple, wheat, and yeast. Itís also a tad chalky. This isnít too complex, or exciting, but seems okay.

Iím pretty sure this is bittered with gesho, not hops. It has that signature earthy Woody almost tea - like flavor. A simple, unexciting beer, but a nice twist with a signature local ingredient. Drank in bottle in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

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.

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 (5715) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - 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 wonít be spending much time in Ethiopia !

35cl bottle courtesy of and shared with jmgreenuk. Very thin white head. Clear golden pour. A bland boring lager.
