A litlle more malt sweetness than standard efes, maybe slightly more body. Overall a little different but not really any better.

luttonm (2223) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 10, 2013
Draft at a bar in Istanbul. Still quite sweet and honey like Efes, a bit more corny malt and rich golden appearance. Some sour alc backnote. a bit more ’premium’ lagerness (I suppose this is the general ’100% malt’ thing again). a little richer than the other beers around, but still eggy. not terrible.

Travlr (11983) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 22, 2012
There used to be a local brewery in Bomonti until Efes bought it out and closed it, in what sounds like a typical predatory pattern repeated all over the world. Can. Clear pale yellow color, fizzy coca cola head. Aroma of celery and broccoli. Taste is dilute straw. The original must have been better than this, I can’t imagine it being worse.

rarbring (1394) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2012
Aroma: Smelling of boiled vegetables and some non-specific sourness. Very weak.
Appearance: A clear straw colored beer. A high white head with no lacing and no curtains.
Taste: Tasting sweet sugar, some alka-seltzer and alkaloid.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, a fresh texture. A small body with an un-dry finish.
Overall: An uninteresting experience, probably easy to drink for an uninterested drinker.
Note: Bottle 500 ml, thx JA. Reviewed 2012-10-09.

mikkellund42 (553) - DENMARK - OCT 3, 2012
Can in Istanbul. Pours pale yellow with foamy falling white head. Aroma is malt, faint white wine and faint ripe fruit. Taste is faint bitter and faint sweet. Body is watery and flat. Finish is short with faint fruity and floral notes.

andriesradu (507) - ROMANIA - SEP 27, 2012
50cl bottle. Clear golden color with a white head which dissapears a bit fast. Moderat cereal aroma. Flavor is malty, cereal mainly because of the 100% malt. The aftertaste has a strong flavor of corn flower.
