Bottled, thanks koelschtrinker! Clear pale golden, fizzy head. Boiled vegetables dominate the nose. Sweetish with gassy mouthfeel and light-medium body. Syrupy malt extract, boiled vegetables and not much other things. Low bitterness. Crappy industrial swill.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle with an omelette at a cafe in the occupied north of Nicosia, or the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, depending on your stance. 30/07/14. Skim of halo on pale hold. Nose light lemon barley, straw and honey. Papery pale grain and pine licks taste; decent lemon and lime wine gum hints, honey. Quenching and without off notes. When its 38c, youre streaming with sweat in the shade, this well and truly hits the spot. Although Im saddened to note Ive been dethroned as the sites premier rater of Efes.

On 50 cl can from Alanya. Golden color, good foam. Aromas of malt, boiled vegetables and some fruitiness . Light/ medium body & complexity . Some bitterness - ok balance. Ok enough( as expectations to any Efes are low

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml can, pours a yellow coloured body. Herbs, perfume citrus and some sweet notes to the nose, hints of wood, clove, but mostly perfume and citrus in taste as well. Its probably a nice and refreshing drink on a Turkey beach, but feels quite sad, thin and bland on a rainy day in Tromsĝ. Sampeled at Rating Session 16.06.14. Thanks to Rune for sharing and to his missus for bringing it from Turkey to Tromsĝ.

Boks 0,5l spandert av Rune. Delt i godt selskap pċ Nerstranda 18 Jun 14. Veldig lys gylden. 0 skum. Svak sĝt maltaroma. Smaken er papp. Blir litt syrlig & bitter etter hvert.
