Sampled at Queen of Sheeba restaurant. Drunk over kitfo. What an experience. Decent beer a little bit of malt in the finish. JWN (54) - Hundvag, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 "The beer is light golden in colour with a small foam head that quickly disapears. It tastes fresh with a very nice malty feel. It finishes of with a hint of sweetness and some grainy notes. One of the better African lagers I’ve had so far." - beersoftheworldproject.wordpress.comwombat23 (2150) - Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2018
Bought at: Sunset Corners in Miami, USA.
Shared bottle. Pours clear straw with a white head. Aroma of apple juice, grass. Taste follows nose with a bit of skunkiness. Not so great. nilsas (4719) - Bryne, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2017hauxe (1024) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - SEP 29, 2017
Shared with wombat23 and darbeer75. From the bottle. Gold with a white head that turns thin and whispy. Metallic aroma, bit of grass and garden weed. 'Herbal' might be more polite. Mildly bitter with some sweet tones that feel almost artificial. It is Rheinheitsgebot but the hops leave something to desire. Body lightish, touch watery. Not my thing.

While travelling in Ethiopia, having one of the surprisingly well-crafted Lagers was like entering heaven after a hot and dusty day exploring. That being said, St. George is the leader of the pack, though objectively compared to real good beer on a global format it can be no more than average. yaff (88) - la fontalaye, FRANCE - AUG 28, 2017
Le Négus / Paris. Que dire sur cette bière ? Une des seules qualités vient de son origine exotique, sinon , pour le reste , on est très proche d’une Heineken. Ni plus ni moins. biir (1687) - Berlin, - JUL 27, 2017

Review: 33cl bottle of St. George Beer: ABV: 4.7%
The beer has an interesting cover on its bottle. We get to see a medieval type knight slaying a dragon. Plus there is funny looking writing on the label which I’m led to believe is the Amharic language, the ancient language of Ethiopia. Overall it is a nice stand out distinct design and in a lovely looking brown bottle.
On appearance we get a nice golden colour and a nice big head on the pour. A lot of nice carbonation going on. Overall it looks a good beer, very clear and a decent head but colour and head both fade a little and there is no lacing.
Aroma is faint but I got a sweet malty smell and some barely, bit tinty and lagery as well.
Taste: Has an off taste, initial taste of cardboard? Not nice at all, like unprocessed straw. Not nice at all. Very sweet grain flavours and sweet malted barely tastes.
Second pint, slightly better but still not great to be honest, very sweet, too much so, and very corny. Not a session beer for sure, or for anything to be fair.
I so wanted this to be a good beer. but I guess its a long way to Ethiopia, and I’m sure it tastes better under an African sun……………
