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.

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.
