JPDIPSO (4956) - 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.

Bottle at mpls ethiopian restaurant. This was at least better than the Harar we also drank, but not much. Barely finished it (but of course I finish everything!).

An okay lager. Sweet and very malty. Not particularly crisp, but has a mellow sweetness throughout. Tried at an ethiopian restaurant in DC in 2015.
