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.

Not a clue where the high ratings coming from. Typical industrial lager with disgusting waterness in its palate

50cc bottle pours with avarage head and really clear golden color. Aroma is too light, maybe bread and a bit grassy. Finishing is a bit dry and medium bitter.

Pours a clear golden body with a thin head. Faint hoppy aroma. Nice and creamy taste but rather flat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Láhev 500 ml. Aroma je výrazně sladové a minerální. Pěna je bílá, jemná, mohutná a držící. Barva samotného piva je jasně zlatá. Chuť je příjemně sladová s minerálním nádechem a lehkým chmelovým akcentem, finiš je středně hořký a držící. V ústech pivo působí průměrně, má střední říz a je dobře pitelné. Jedná se o poměrně dobré pivo, které mě mile překvapilo už po nalití svým vzhledem, hlavně tedy svojí excelentně držící pěnou.

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.

A decent beer far better than the normal effes Pilsner. Nice white head but limited retention. Taste is ok malt and bitter.

Not terrible, though a bit too bitter. Decently creamy lager though, from an Istanbul corner shop

larsga (6930) - 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.)
