1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a pale hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma is there, I’m sure of it. Taste is also around somewhere; probably hiding somewhere with the aroma.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fun bottle design. Nice hazy appearance--I imagined that if an unfiltered style was mainstreamed in the U.S., it would cause some average Joe beer drinkers to freak out because it challenges everything we’ve been taught about macro beers. I also had the Bomonti unfiltered, and I thought this was the better of the two--more body, more rounded flavor. Bottle purchased in Istanbul.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Picked up in Istanbul.
Pours a hazy and very pale yellow color, topped with a very small white head.
There’s not much to the aroma. All I could pick up were some grains and slight malts. Nothing else.
The taste was similarly non-expressive. Bland, slightly sweet and grainy, but that was it.
To be fair, this one was the worst I found in Istanbul.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drinking from a 50 cl bottle.
First sniff is like rotten eggs... When that has flown no special aroma remains.
The clear pale golden beer has a small white head that doesn’t last long.
The taste is of a watery pilsner. Not much bitterness, very drinkable in the sun.
Low to medium carbonated.
