3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Animal kingdom. Pours a clear gold body with a small wispy white head. The nose is all corn and sweet malt, zero hops. The flavor is much the same, very sweet from the corn, with a slightly clingy soggy grain finish. About what you would expect from a pale lager from Ethiopia. Light bodied and a little clingy with fizzy carbonation. New country tick. Had to do it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle at the Beer Garden Inn, Addis Ababa. Immaculate condition, beautifully presented largely pointless, could-be-from-anywhere little blond job from the style that will tell young aspiring Africans across the continent what to drink. They do not have to list the ingredients so I am guessing 30% adjuncts. Tasting notes: nothing offensive.
