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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

330ml bottle poured into pint glass jan23 2010
A clear straw yellow with some tiny particles being moved around by a couple big bubbles that float up to a fast falling fingers worth of head that leaves a single patch of lace
S not much some corn perhaps and a little lemon
T what I smell but with a hint of skunk
M pretty thin even for the style and could use some more carbonation
D just a little off but nothing gross
not worth looking for but one way to knock off a country

I had this at Demera Ethiopian Restaurant in Chicago today. Poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a tall lager glass.
A= This beer poured a medium gold color with a 3/4" white head. The head dropped to zero pretty fast and did not leave any lace. Modest carbonation release.
S= Sweet grain, only the slightest whiff of sulfur, and not much else. Very clean overall.
T= Like the smell indicated, this beer tasted malty sweet with only a hint of DMS. Hops were never a taste factor, but the bitterness was there enough to balance the sweetest aspects. Finished clean with very little aftertaste.
MF= Light bodied with a lightly crisp feel.
D= Easy to drink, but also not very interesting. I would rather have a well made German Helles anyday, but this did pair well with the Ethioppian food so I guess it did its job!
