1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale blonde colour, the head is quite big, but disappears quickly. The aroma of malt has an artificial feeling and is not pleasant. Low bitterness and the body is too watery. Not bad as you expect from a Turkish beer, but overall a boring lager.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Watery clear yellow colour with a thin white head that disappeares almost immediately. Very weak aroma of hops. The flavor and the palate saves this beer from being a complete disaster and makes it a decent pale lager. It has a very good taste of sweet malt, hops, and bread. Good carbonation without becoming fizzy. Good selection of hops. Very refreshing. Good finish. An underated beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge, just yellow-tinted head; clear golden colour. Very grassy aroma, German "herb", dry malty & very faintly buttermilk. Sweeter-maltier taste than expected with a very marked mineral water quality & flavour. Dry enough but no hoppiness. Mineral water, light body, good carbonation without becoming fizzy. Aftertaste non existant after fading finish. In its class decent enough.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Someone says "Turkish beer," and I’m lined up for it. Another country notched, although not without some trepidation. Pale gold and fizzy, so far meeting my every expectation. Odd aroma that reminds me of the smell of a furniture store stocked with lots of old Asian cabinets. Flavor is almost non-existant, just some light adjunct notes, but there is a hint of floral hops at the finish, just barely peeking out. Not as bad as I had feared, and certaintly had an aroma I had never before encountered in a beer.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
canned; imported in hand luggage from Turkey. Some bitterness in the aroma, and it´s the first thing when it hits the tongue, but not much. Some malts, corn. Very bland but not as bad as I thought it would be. But it puzzles me a great deal why some icelanders bring home cases of this from vacation in Turkey
