DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 26, 2006
Pale yellow gold, stinky wet-hair aroma. Thin pale lager palate with some extra corny sweetness that isn’t very pleasant. Average at best, and that may be being generous.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2006
Bottle (from Tesco, BBE Apr 07). Very pale. Sweet cereal and slight metallic. Quite boring with minimal flavour. Other than the colour and sweetness it wouldnt take too much of a leap of the imagination to think yourself drinking fizzy water, cool and refreshing yes, interesting no.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2006
Pour is a clear yellow with a white head. Aroma is burnt maltyness. Flavor is very watery,grainy and bland. Nothing happing here and this does not taste like any pilsner I have ever had.

UCFbeerknight (8) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2006 does not count
this beer was sampled in the hot turkish sun. although it momentarily quenched my thirst, the aftertaste was very bad. tasted watery, ricey, and bland. must be a good beer to throw off that heat, but definitely not for taste

eaglefan538 (2900) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 11, 2006
Sampled straight from the bottle, but do these global swills really need an appearance rating? Anyway, they smell was corn and light skunk. The flavor was metallic, plastic, odd-ball chemicals, oxidation, light grass, light caramel, and a nasty candy toffee sweetness at the same time. I took a world beer tour last summer and this year’s is perhaps a little worse. Neat to get the stamps in the old beer passport, but I’m not coming back to this one.... unless, well, I get trapped in Turkey or something for like 10 or more days.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 4, 2006

Pours a lackluster gold with minimal head and carbonation. Aroma is sweet hay, with bits of sour honey. Flavor is surprisingly crisp, with a bit of malted hoppiness. Not much taste, but it’s not as offensive as I thought it would be. Watery palate. Might make for a good backyard barbeque beer, but not much else.

jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 1, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2006 Bottle served in a cold glass. Not much aroma or taste to speak of. It was light in color and taste, slightly aspartic. Not great but what do you expect from a country where drinking is prohibited by much of the population.

Tranquillity (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2006 Horrible stuff. Extremely light opaque color, foul taste. Aroma of rice and an abrupt finish. Nothing good at all.

TC2642 (265) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2006
Bottle. Nothing really special about this Pilsner, a bit bland, much of a muchness, ok I suppose but I wouldn’t buy it again.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
sanmiguel (118) - Illinois, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottled. Pours a light golden body with small head. Strong grassy/hoppy scent. Malty flavor. OK finish. An OK beer.
