Leicht säuerlicher Apfelgeruch. Milder Antrunk, leicht getreidig, säuerlich. Angedeutet hopfig, dies wirkt aber ziemlich billig. Erfrischend, im Abgang getreidiger und plörriger. Test vom 12.8.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 8,6,6,6,9,6 - 6,35

Bierkrug (2133) - - JUN 2, 2011
On tap in the Airport in Ethiopia. This was better than most African pale lagers. Pours a gold with a small head. Aroma has some good notes to it as well Taste is a bit corny but over all it is not that bad.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Pale golden pour. Fresh pale malt. Low bitterness but the malt is fairly expressive. Light and simple, but not terribly bland. Softly sweet. It works for what it’s intended.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Silver Springs Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB on 02/28/2011. Colour: Dark yellow with medium height but quickly fading and spotty head. Nose: Pear and apricot immediately, yeast develops and then more fruit. Honey late. Taste: Light sweet, light bitter, light sour. Delicate and quiet. Some vanilla notes float about, and even a trace of green olive...but other then that - characterliss. Decent nose led to nothing.

RichardGretton (4237) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle. Golden beer with a strongish frothy head. The aroma is gently malty, and the flavour is nicely dry witth a hint of yeast. Overall a reasonable lager.

jcr (2198) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Bottle. Clear medium yellow with a short, fizzy, white head rapidly diminishing. The aroma is malty sweet with notes of grain and toffee. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and moderate carbonation. Not a lot of taste, but there is some bread and corn. Finishes dry. Not terribly offensive, but not a lot to this beer.
