Bottle. Pour was light golden with a light white head. Aroma was somewhat sweet with just a little spice from the hops. Flavor was very light with just a touch of bready sweetness and barely any hop character. Light, smooth, and ok, but not something to write home about.

Pours a clear pale yellow from the can with bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to leave light lace. Aroma and taste of mild grain, but mostly adjunct, probably rice, mild sweetness. Another light lager made for the masses. Turkish tick though.

50 cl. can. Very clear light yellow with a minimal, quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is malt, grains and a bit of rice. Taste is quite sweet, with very light bitterness and very light sourness. Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, and watery mouthfeel. Would be a refreshing beer on a summer day if served cold, but when there are other options it would not be my choice.

I drank this beer at several oportunities and during my trip in Istanbul. In my opinion, it is a basical beer, nothing extraordinary, beer when you are thirsty. The taste is a bit metalic, some cereals, maybe few corn, watery, few hop, un pleasant sensation in the mouth.

Aus der Flasche beim Döner getrunken. Es ist halt ein Mittemeerbier. Es gibt aber Schlechteres.

Poured into a dof tumbler, pale, sparkling, with a small amount of foam. Soft carbonation, flavorful, light bodied. A bit of citrus and herbs. Overall, very pleasant and refreshing.

Review: Can of Efes Pilsen: ABV: 5% The “number one Mediterranean beer in the world” as their slogan says, which is a big ask but lets see…. On pour has a very clear golden yellow colour, looks good, has a nice head, not a bad looking beer at all, light, looks good Had a nice beery smell, nice smell of malts and grains, very nice, Got a lot of fruits on the nose. Nice aroma The taste was very sweet, lots of malts In a weird way it tasted like washing up liquid, but strangely not in a bad way! A starchy kind of taste. Not bad, but sweet A smooth beer, very drinkable, light, dont really get the 5% Some hops present, a little sour, but not overly bitter, Really smooth, Drinkable, goes down well. Overall, ok, but I think I might need to try this one again for another sitting……
