Compared to another Ethiopian pale beer (lager?), Harar, this is a much more standard, basic pale lager. Decent, it's pleasant and easy to drink, but nothing more and lacks the interest and uniqueness of Harar.

Straw-gold, it has with a fairly large, creamy, white head that slowly shrinks to a permanent thin top, leaving a little weak lacing.

The aroma is a basic, decent lager of light grain and bread with a hint of grapes.

The taste also mostly light and simple with light bread and grain, hints of cheap wine, white grape juice, and minerals. A very light grassy bitterness somewhat balances the sweetness. It's pleasant and easy to drink but very light and simple.

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer pours a crystal clear straw yellow body with big bubbles gliding through it. There is a snow white head on top that last as a thin film for about two sips.

S- This beer has a soft almost perfumed sulfur smell that disappears as soon as the head does. Then the smell is nothing.

T- This beer has a light dry sulfury carbonic acid flavor followed by a light watery taste with just a hint of slightly sweet pale malt coming through when it is warm. The finish is a faint but harsh carbonic acid note. There is a very light hop aftertaste after the beer is pretty warm.

M- This beer has a light mouthfeel with a slight watery texture.

D- It didn't have any offensive flavors there was really not much flavors at all. Even after it was pretty warm there wasn't much to this beer. It was a bit more harsh than the St. George that was much more smooth.
