GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - OCT 6, 2006
Pours pale gold w/ shallow spritzy froth. Aroma of metalic malt. Light nectar w/ ample residual effers. No off flavors. Clean, malty, and finely bittered on the finish. A decent brew.

haukur (1345) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - OCT 4, 2006
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

DrnkMcDermott (2865) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2006
33 cl bottle. For so many, this will be our only beer from a Moslem country; although Turkey has in fact a very secular government. Passed up the chance to try it in Russia two years ago, and now it’s here in the States. Bit of a skunk when I first open it. Pours a pretty decent gold lager color, fizzy with a disappearing head. I actally taste some bitterness first off, not a lot, but enough to be surprising. I do get some adjunct to it, but it has lots of prickly effervescence to keep it from being too sweet. Bits of spice here and there give this more complexity than most world-wide exports. It stands out somewhat in a style dominated by blandness. Of course if it’s being exported from just one source, you need to play the odds to snare an unspoilt pack.

CapFlu (4687) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2006
(Bottle) Purchased at the BC Liquor Store. Its not all that bad either - crisp with a good carbonation and and balanced maltedness. Nothing spectacular but overall decent.

thewolf (11314) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2006
Light golden colour with little white head. Mild malty sweet aroma. Taste is very mild as well, no bitterness but also not quite sweet.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Pours to a boring pale straw colored body with a thick bubbly white head. The aroma is malty corn silage. The flavor is strangely sweet and malty. Must use some interesting ingredients as it’s not like any I’ve had. Perhaps bread and butter style pickle mix without the pickles. Pretty bland. Not offensive, fortunately. Decent palate. Actually has body even though it looks like it wouldn’t. A light tartness pervades.

shrubber85 (8325) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. A cigarette ash aroma. Golden yellow color with small head. Sour barley malt flavor with no hops flavor and moderate carbonation. Vile aroma but a non-offensive but bland flavor.
