ciaranc (851) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle from Lidl. Crystal clear blonde, not much head. Very little aroma, some corn. Flavour is sweetcorn. Light and fizzy. No finish. Slightly skunked. Refreshing I guess, if overly sweet. I only bought this to colour Turkey in on my Ratebeer statistics, tastes exactly like I expected/

Een redelijk pilsbier. Gedronken op vakantie in Turkije was dat het beste dat te krijgen was

StueyD (1145) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
A pale yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A mild biscuity malt aroma. Dry mouthfeel. The taste starts off with a dry, biscuity malt flavour, some light caramel flavours, followed by a tart citrusy hop flavour that takes over into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Have nothing against beers that has a rich taste of yeast, unless there are other flavors in the beer, which this Turk is obviously lacking. Smells nice, but the taste is not as good as the aroma.

Could have been a lot worse, what what I thought after 2 weeks in Turkey with Efes the only beer selection going. For a run of the mill Pilsener it was actually ok and had a reasonable taste. Wouldn’t go out of my way to have it again mind you.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - AUG 15, 2014
light dusty male, pale gold color. Artificial taste with a hint of lemon dry ending very thin nothing in the body a pretty blah beer

Kosmokrator (477) - ITALY - AUG 11, 2014
Limpido color biondo scarico con fragile velo di schiuma bianca. Aroma quasi nullo, deboli sentori dolciastri di malto e risto; gusto piuttosto classico e amarognolo, discretamente maltato con note di cereali e luppoli industriali. Corpo lieve, effervescenza piacevole, struttura un po’ acquosa, parzialmente appiccicosa nel finale. 100% lager da supermercato, ma bevuta fredda sotto il sole turco è dissetante e non spiacevole.

Calisky (617) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2014
Couleur jaune dorée, forte mousse blanche. Nez leger malté houblonné, notes agrumes. Gout malté et houblon herbeux. Corps moyen. Rien de spécial mais ca passe.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Turkey is clearly no beer country, but since it is close to Europe, they do have this standard lager primarily for tourists, with a cream white, regular, moussy head and purely golden, cristal clear robe. Malt sweetness in the nose, grainy, rice, iron, grass, unfortunately lightstruck as well, and a weird smokey, sulphuric accent. Simple taste of sweetish pale malts with rice adjunct (like a Far East lager), medium carbonation, thin mouthfeel, bit metallic, mild grassy hops in the finish. Thirst-quenching if you’re at a Turkish hotel in summer I suppose, but just as boring as most of its congeners.
