1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
A bonus brew from who I’m not sure. But I think this is my first Turkish beer. Pours an ugly yellow with a big 3 finger bright white head. Aroma sucks. The taste is just bad, and hard to clarify. Drain pour, yes, but another country to my list.

Bottle. Clear golden, medium, fluffy, white head. Malty aroma, with some notes of tropical fruits and butterscotch. Watery mouthfeel. A decent bitterness in the finish. Better than expected.

had this beer at the local turkish resturant. Semi-sweet aroma, some aromas reminecent of local pilsners with the normal adjucts. Flavor was well carbonated, smooth then to a sharp bite. Has some similarities to czech beers. Was lacking in body not much character. A decent thirstn quencher.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2007 Picked up a bottle of Efes Pilsen for eighty-six cents at Total Wine, Cherry Hill, NJ. I was not expecting much and even with such low expectations Efes Pilsen let me down. Taste and aroma of sweet cardboard, barnacle bubbles cling to the side of the glass and a quickly dissapating foam. Bland beer, maybe a slice of lime or lemon would have helped it out. If I ever make it to Istanbul I know what beer I’m not buying now.

Bottle. This was surprisingly good much better than the ratings suggest. Diifferent from the typical Pilsener in that it was more smooth and even had flavors of sweet fruit such as peach.
It was lacking the metallic finish often found in Pilseners. This would be a great summer beer.

Quite decent lager. Flowery, a little hoppy but not bitter. Surprisingly tasty.
