JPDIPSO (4958) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2010
Straw color with a wispy white diminishing head. Flour, dough grass and grain aromas. Sweet flavors dominate. light herbal hops help just a little in balancing. Actually fairly dry in the finish. Just a bit of cardboard in the end. Fairly thick feel, but some acidity cuts in at the end. Certainly not the worst pale lager, but still far from the best.

scoth (588) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Pours clear golden with a diminishing pale head. Earthy, herbal aromas with biscuit and grass. Light body, good carbonation. Medium sweet, lightly bitter.

StevieT (925) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2015
From a bottle. It was served ice cold which probably didn’t do it any harm, surprisingly good, crisp and fresh, who would have thought Ethiopia is pumping out beer that could stand up to a trip to Australia and still be pretty good. I’m impressed.
