Terminus (3543) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle while deployed in Djibouti Pours bright lite orange hue with a small soapy white head. No lacing served very cold. Nose is slightly grassy some adjunct and lite grsins. Really doesn’t smell bad at all. Flavors are grassy slightly grainy. Finish is short with lingering dry grassy notes and pale malt husks. Very solid pale lager if you ask me.

jamestulloch (3103) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2016
Keg at Radisson Blu, Addis Ababa. Clear golden body with a thin white head that fades. Steady carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of grain and metal. Flavour of stainless steel. Thin body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Soft fizz. Quite harsh on the finish.

LazyPyro (374) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma is light malt, grain. Light flavour of sweet malts, grains, mild herby notes. Mild bitterness to finish. Watery texture. Not great but I did mainly try this for the unusual country rate.

Cimbasso (651) - - APR 18, 2016
Sampled from a bottle from Beers of Europe. A golden lager, with little aroma and a taste of malts and corn syrup. Some herbal notes and a hint of coriander.Better than some hot-climate lagers - it is actually quite drinkable, with a light to medium mouthfeel. Not very much bitterness.

mzaar (2604) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 12, 2016
Flaska. Klar orange-gul med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter och smaker av säd och majs. I sig inte oäven eller dålig, men det är klart att det är roligare att ha fått landet Etiopien än just den här ölen.

mansquito (4968) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 9, 2016
Bunna Cafe, Brooklyn bottle: pours pale hold with a white head. Aroma is grainy corn grain. Tastes and smells like a cheap lager. I really prederred most of the other Ethiopian beers that I have had.

Arve_Christian (4604) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2016
ON bottle from Drinks of the world, Zurich. Clean golden color, ok foam. Low aroma intensity; cabbage, some boiled vegetables and a little stale cardboard. Light body & complexity. OK bitterness and balance. Pretty poor stuff

Pour from a bottle at Animal Kingdom. Good thing it was ice cold. Corn and sugar - thats it.
