Had it on tap when I was in the mood for something light and drinkable. From what the bartender told me, this fit the bill.

A- The appearance didn't bode well. Clear straw yellow reminiscent of a generic American lager

S- Weak smell. Some corn and a little bit of alcohol came through.

T- Pretty average. There's sweet malts and corn here, along with some hops on the finish. I can't help feeling that the malt is too weak to balance out the hoppy bitterness though.

M & D- Goes down easy, but I couldn't see drinking too many of these at a time.

Overall fairly average lager. Worth checking out at least once, but don't expect anything spectacular. (654 characters)

Pours a clear golden color with a 1/4 finger of white head.

Light hints of grainy malt with a slight hint of hops.

Light grainy notes with a hint herbal hops.

Light and drying feel with moderate amount of carbonation.

The drinkability isn't terrible but this one doesn't exactly wow me. (290 characters)

12 oz bottle, no bottled-on date, poured into a stange.

A- Pours a clear golden color with a thin, fizzy white head, leaves a bit of spotty lacing.

S- Sweet grain and corn, some mild floral hoppiness. Pretty simple but nothing bad.

T- More slightly-sweet grain and corn, has a bit of floral hops and bitterness, again pretty standard.

M- Light-bodied, smooth and crisp feel.

O- A solid light lager, it's not my favorite style of beer but is definitely on par with many of the light lagers you'll find from the US and Europe. (529 characters)

I don't have a highly analytical review for this beer. It's a simple light lager. I was drinking it and I didn't notice anything particularly bad about it, and at the same time it didn't have a whole lot of flavor (even for a light lager). It was just an average beer to have with some food. It's not something I'd look forward to picking up, but it's a good alternative to drinking a soda. It's cool to have an Ethiopian beer, but beyond that it's just another light lager. I felt it was pretty "okay" across the board. (520 characters)

Bottle, $2.99. Obscure Ethiopian tick = awesome.

A light golden yellow with a dense white head that falls off leaving what is actually nice-looking lacing, this looks pretty good! The nose is an acceptable blend of light cereal sweetness, doughy malts, a mild hop character that's got notes of dust and earth and a mild vegetal note as well. Nothing patently offensive here.

The palate is crisply carbonated, lending an acidity to an otherwise insipid palate. A little bit of cereal and grain sweetness is present, but this is carbonated and watery to a fault, lending a seltzer-like feel. On the bright side, it does scrub the vegetal notes, but that's not particularly a good thing as there is no flavor here. The flip side is that there are no off-flavors here, which is more than I can say for a lot of breweries these days. Light, watery, seltzer-like on the palate, this is pretty forgettable. (901 characters)
