nuplastikk (4295) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Pale, filtered, dull tanned-yellow color. Patchy, thin, frothy head retains itself rather well. Doughy inoffensive non-aroma. Not bad, maybe a little conservative on the hops, but otherwise a pretty standard European Lager, which probably tastes that much better in Ethiopia. Sugary, but light enough on the palate, with a simple zesty hop balance. Surprisingly OK.

rubbishystuff (1809) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Not much to this beer but not bad with spicy Ethiopian food. Other than washing down Doro Watt this doesnít have much going on. Serving: Bottle

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 3, 2010
I found this beer slightly tolerable, but itís more then likely because ive consumed a shitload of swill over the last few weeks on my trip to Central America. Bright golden, large head. Instant corn on the nose. Sweet and malty, and noticeably dry on the palate. I honestly enjoyed it, probably because it was so warm today.

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a clear light golden yellow with a small fizzy head. Aroma of stale bread and light honey. Flavor is fairly dry, some honey and biscuit, green grass, bitter finish. Medium/light bodied, corse carbonation. Actually not too bad.
