2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Dryish papery mineraly aftertaste with sugary notes. Not really offensive. (0.33l bottle from KnutAlbert.)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle at this little Ethiopian spot at 14th and P Streets NW in DC. For those who don’t know, DC has a thriving Ethiopian community and I am just getting around to trying their beer. Pour a clear gold with some sudsy, sticky white head. Nose of honey, wet flour, light dough, hay, grass. Flavor is the same, sweet, malty, some heavy honey, white bread, hay. Clean, smooth finish. Not bad at all.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fluffy white head over big-bubbled yellow golden beer. Straw, grassy, dusty grass. Faintly wet hay, some dry, not-too-sweet malts. Very malty, sweetness comes out more in force warming up. Light to watery, very slightly sticky MF. Less sweet than the other Ethiopian beer, but not necessarily better. Thanks to the V. Brothers and their mystery supplier

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle - thanks Keren! Pours pale yellow with a small fizzy white head that dissipates quickly with a bit of lacing. Aroma is sweet corn syrup, grain, grass. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and light grassy bitter. Light body. Too sweet for a pale lager.
