50cl. Pours clear yellow with nice consistent white head. Doesn’t have a strong aroma. Flavour is neutral, slightly malty, no bitterness. It doesn’t have a strong character in taste. Nothing special but refreshing.

Beautiful foaming lager beer, which is brewed as all-malt lager. Malt and hops grown in Turkey. Perhaps it is not just Turkey one associates with good lagers, but this lager is all pretty good. It is perhaps due to Turkey in recent decades has become a popular destination for tourists, and perhaps because Efes just want to satisfy the German tourists with beer as they can recognize from their homeland. This lager is very clean in its flavor and associate strongly to the good German lagers. Malt flavor is distinctive and gives good body and light sweetness. Carbonation is soft and fine maintains its malt sweetness long. Fresh grain is its main flavoring and towards the end it has a good hoppy bitterness who gets a good balance in the beer. I started to enjoy it cold from the fridge, but a little tempering makes it only more flavorful and delicate. The strength is usual for a lager, but the light temperate beer tastes a little more along as a good strong beer.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 15, 2015
Big creamy offwhite head. Clear yellow body with strong carbonation. Earthy papery aroma with peas and flour notes. Sweetish earthy dusty papery taste with oily notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, dusty mouthfeel. Dryish dusty earthy oily aftertaste with fruity straw notes. Not bad at all. (0.33l bottle, gift from wife.)

anstei (276) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 1, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours golden yellow, medium foam. No nose to speak of, but a healthy malt taste for a beer of this industrial type.

can @ home. Pours a clear golden liquid with a thick white head and good lacing. Aroma has some maltiness and grains, corn, toast, metal & hints of grass. Low bodied dry and watery texture. Medium Carbonation. Light malty flavor with some sweetness and grains initially, then strong cabbage taste takes over. More cabbage and wet cardboard & paper glue in the aftertaste.
