as the bottle warmed, the taste grew and grew and became almost too much, drink this cold and it won’t offend you, had this with a gyro platter in chicago, the food was good, the beer so-so

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Moderate note of hay for the malt, light herbs and grass for the hops, and cooked corn and celery in the background. Head is frothy, white, with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is sparkling clear gold. Flavor is lightyl acidic to start and finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery, with a lively carbonation and finishes slightly metallic. This beer surprised me a bit. It wasn’t just another average wishy-washy Pilsner.

this was my first turkish beer. and probably my last. I didn’t find it appealing at all. Flavor was slightly off - as was the color. But reading the catagory this beer is in......its not a pilsner at all. Figures.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not terrible. This is an exceptable pale lager. I had this at a beerfest and it was a nice change from the ordinary pale. Mildly hoppy aroma. It’s rather ordinary in appearance with a decent head. A bit refined taste some hop flavor, with a minor presence of spice. It’s bitter, but not unpleasant at all. A good beer for a meal.

Golden yellow, average foamy head. Some hops, a bit sweet. Slightly bitter finish. OK for a meal, nothing special.

The initial impression is promising, nice colour with foamy white Pilsener head that retains quite well. Then it is down from there really.
Aroma is cardboard, flavour is corn with a sweet finish and a hint of bitterness. Dissapointing at best.

Many thanks to my friend Barb for this hand imported can. Watery yellow body. corn and wet spring dairy farm runoff in the aroma. Corn flavored body with a similar taste.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Bosphorus, a Turkish restaurant in Winter Park, FL. Looks, feels, and tastes like a typical, skunky, pale lager from Turkey would. Crystal clear pale golden color. Quickly dissipating, fizzy white head. Moderate, soapy lacing. Aroma and flavor of stale corny malts and grassy grains. Minimal floral hop character. Weak, thin body. Pretty much awful all around. Drainpour.
