I had this beer in Bahir Dar when the water where I was staying had typhoid. It was delicious. I have since had it in the United States at an Ethiopian restaurant, and it wasn’t as good as it was in Bahir Dar. I would love to have it again.

Huge white head. Clear golden colour. Fruity bitter aroma. Pleasant taste. Spicy palate. Good one!

YantarCoast (1334) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 28, 2016
330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear gold with a large white head. Decent amount of the glass. Aroma is grain, malt, herbal notes and corn. Taste is light sweet, corn, light herby bitterness. Surprisingly decent and drinkable.

330 ml bottle. This beer is mild and not very flavour intensive. But it’s still good, very enjoyable

nuplastikk (6206) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2010
12oz bottle. Pale, filtered, dull tanned-yellow color. Patchy, thin, frothy head retains itself rather well. Doughy inoffensive non-aroma. Not bad, maybe a little conservative on the hops, but otherwise a pretty standard European Lager, which probably tastes that much better in Ethiopia. Sugary, but light enough on the palate, with a simple zesty hop balance. Surprisingly OK.

Poured a pale yellow with aromas of grain and malt. Flavors followed suit, malt and grain, decent in the heat, had this at Animal Kingdom.

Bottle. Golden beer with a strongish frothy head. The aroma is gently malty, and the flavour is nicely dry witth a hint of yeast. Overall a reasonable lager.

I bought this bottle at the drink of the world in Geneva. I drank it in Paris, in the hotel room. In my point of view, it is a honest lager, nothing to fall in love with ten women but it makes the job to be refresh and relax. The taste is standard like so many lagers in this planet: malty, bready, some hop and a bit watery, a bit metalic at the final but the taste is relatively standard during all the time. The body is yellow and gold, normal carbonation, thin and white head.

A halfway decent lager with that unique Ethiopian sweetness to it. Always get the Ethiopian beer at the Ethiopian restaurants.

Slight bready aroma on the nose, drank from the bottle but it looks like any pale lager. Flavour is light maltiness with a semi-dry finish. Drinkable and okay.
