Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Golden color, skunky nose. Starts out on the sweet and bready side, finishes drier with some hops. OK.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2005
Bottled. Yellow and a bit greenish colour, small white head. Malty sweet a bit unpleasant nose. Hayish hoppy flavour with hints of malt and paper. Horrible vegetably aftertaste.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 19, 2005
Light bread, malt aroma, musty. Pours a clear yellow,slight carbonation. Grassy taste. Acidy/vegetable aftertaste. Standard Euro-piss whose rightful place is swirling down the drain.

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2005
Bottled. A lime green coloured lager. The aroma is reminiscent of ice and some sweet petrol. The taste is grassy and sweet and a little floral - obviously there is a hop or two. Overall though quite poor.

heemer77 (5097) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Light yellow body with lots of fast moving carbonation. The aroma is canned carrots with some bread. The taste is cardboard with some celery in the finish. There is a harsh metallic finish. This is drinkable, but that is about all.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2005
MGC under small very short (20 second) lasting white head. Amusing mild stale hops, albumen and something almost malty n fruity. Head does not reconstitute on swirl. Brit bitter style low carb medium thin body. Flavour is 2 day old medium bitter drip tray and light sweet corny grain malt, yeah got the touch of fruit again. Actually the bitterness is quite reasonable at the end - pity about the start.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle: my first Turkish beer. Pours a very light yellow with a small white head. Light hop aroma with a touch of grape juce and apple. Flavor is mildly fruity with the same. Thin body. Mildly bitter finish but what is there is very short. Decent though.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2005
Good colour but the head disappeared quickly. Popcorn aroma and, at first, a lack of significant taste and bitterness. Nevertheless this turned out to be one of those beers that grows on you. By the end I was quite enjoying its eccentricity.

I’m not a huge pilsener lover but Efes is thoroughly tolerable--nice maltiness, none-too-oppressive hoppiness. In a Turkish restaurant (or even better, on a Turkish beach) Efes is worth the beerspace

ALLOVATE (2353) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2005
Tasted this from the bottle and was expecting a decent Lager, being as this is one of the most popular beers in Turkey. Poured into a Pilsner glass, a short loose white head formed on top of a clear pale straw body. Breakfast cereal and corn adjunct aroma, with a little honey. Crisp in the mouth, with a floral leafy hop side, grain husks and honey malt palate, before ending with a forgettable dry and crisp swallow. Very light bodied and medium in carbonation, this was a relatively clean tasting, straight forward lager that is a reasonable thirst quencher, but little else!!!
