11.2 oz. bottle served at Aster's Ethiopian Restaurant in Austin, TX (June 1, 2016)

T: earthy bitter bite, more earthy flavor than bitterness, sweetened by slight bread-malt flavor, hint of peach, black pepper on back end; has an almost English pale ale-peachy fruity flavor at times

F: solid all around, light, crisp

O: decent beer, very easy to drink with no major flaws; the slightly sweet light-malt flavor is nice; hard to score because I didn't get to pour this beer out, but I gave the look and smell best guesses

Pours a completely clear golden color with a hefty white foamy head that soon settles down to only a small cover.
The aroma is quite strong, although slightly funky smell, but mostly malts and grains.
The taste is very sweet, too much grains, but also very watery. Almost no bitterness, flat and bland.
Just not good.

A great complement to Ethiopian food. Its hard for me to find a beer I like, but when I do, it's really nice in flavor. It has almost a slight fruit taste in the beginning and than a cider taste, and towards the end is almost like tasting the Ethiopian lands. Most are afraid of Ethiopian things, since it is much associated with fathom and not much food. But it does have a great side to it as all places do. So if you find yourself being adventurous, try some Ethiopian food with this beer. It has a light sweet, fruity, yet spiced beer taste. I would drink this every time. Unfortunatly it is hard to find. But if you find it, try it!
