1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
This beer was from a 500ml can puchased in Germany, it was very skunky and the flavor was bad, no hops at all, tasted like metal, I will try this again in a glass bottle if possible

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
In the bottle. Had this in the Munich airport of all places. I did not know what I was ordering until I read the label and saw that it was made in Turkey. This may have been the most boring beer of the trip. Not skunky, but not memorable either. Head was mild, but lasting with lacing on the glass. The flavor could not overcome the cigarette smoke all around me.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
A blond and bland pilsener, with a pathetic head, weak almost artificial smelling aroma, and bland and boring taste. Didn’t expect much from a Turkish beer, and certainly didn’t get much.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Blond pilsener with a small quickly disapearing head. Weak aroma of hop and some detergent. The taste is rather bland with a light bitterness. On a hot day in Turkey it is probably quite ok, otherwise not.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A gentle golden color anoints this malty brew. The nose is slightly hoppy, with the breath of a Canadian Lager. The palate is of slight tart apple flavor, which leaves a subtle sweetness in your mouth and finishes crisp and dry.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Average size white head sat on top of a pale straw to almost golden clear body. Good layers of lacing left on the way down the glass, head almost lasting the distance. Light in aroma, slight hops and yeast. Green apples in the taste, pleasant enough bitterness but not a lot of flavour to go with it. Some oiliness in the finish, light body and not much else to report.

Chad’s comment, "Looks like Zagorka" sounds really funny to me for some reason. I concur with Chad that this beer fared well given the green bottle. The skunk wasnt there and a surprisingly crisp and refreshing beer was there.

Bottle. Looks like Zagorka. Faint tastes of banana, some hops. Crisp and not too bad, especially something from overseas in a green bottle.

Bottle in Tomsk, Siberia. Holy crap - this beer was from Turkey? Well, drinking this beer is like getting punched in the face from a Turk because it was pretty bad. Bland, skunky flavor. The previous rater hit the nail on the head when he said "The rice comes through in every sip"
