1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pale yellow color with white head. Aroma and taste of not so much. Notes of malt and a bit hops. Boring pilsner, even Rotal Unibrew makes better lagers.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle via Malt of the Earth Beer club. This one is a clear golden blonde with a tiny head. Very nice plesant nose with bready yeasty notes. Taste is bready with some graininess and a midly tart finish. Body is light. Carbonation is high. This is tasty and easy to drink. A good Pilsner.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s the most widespread beer here [Turkey] but not the best one. Leaves a bad taste within my mouth after drinking it. Still I’d prefer Beck’s :) But I couldn’t get why people were expecting so much worse from Turkey? Could someone pleeaaase tell me?

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of hop, corn? and chlorine? Something unusual. Clear and golden with a white head that isn’t and barely was. There is light lacing. Very light. Very light flavor, a bit sweetish, not really from corn. Medium mouthfeel, mild carbonation. There’s a bit of hop at the finish. Not your Czech pilsener, but head and shoulders above the typical American mass market lagers. I think it could replace Corona any day at the beach.

This is the worst beer I have ever had. Drain pour after 2 sips along w/ the other 2 bottles I received in my beer of the month shipment. This stuff is nasty.

Bottle. Pale yellow with mostly diminishing white head. Aroma of malts and some yeast. Flavor actually rather taste-less. A little hint of slightly sweet malt though. Watery on the palate. Short finish.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled in Cafe Fuzzy,Urgup 500ML returnable bottles @ 4YTL each.
Highly carbonated straw coloured lager with small but long lasting head. Thin palate gives way to a bitter & slightly cloying aftertaste.
Having drunk a lot of Efes pilsen here I have concluded there must be 4 versions of this beer - Draft, can (500ML), disposable (330ML) bottle & Returnable (500ML/330ML) bottle. There is a distinct difference between the latter 2 - the disposable bottles even put into glasses taste much thinner & sweeter. Alas most draft outlets have a low turnover in Urgup & quality is thus inconsistant & variable.
