<b>Bottle brown, 330 ml, 11 P</b>
<b>Appearance: </b>Pours pale yellow with some strange elements floating in the body texture, looks very wattery, carbonation of the body is low and saturation is moderate to weak, head is greyish white, rocky to fizzy, initially small to medium slowly decreasing to a minimal froth floating on the body surface, what is surprising is quite nice rim of lacing around the glass.
<b>Aroma: </b>Burned plastic, rubber, diacetyl, rice, rye, gentle touch of thin grains, cereal, notes of gentle lemon and some light strawy not of hop origin though very low, dusty and papery.
<b>Flavour: </b>Wattery front, slight saltyness and rust, alcoholic in a moderate way, slightly on the verge of being a Malt Liquor with its 5% abv. Clear Pale Lager, gentle touch of cereal grains, rice and barley. Finish duration is short.
<b>Palate: </b>Body is light, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is gentle to moderate, finish feel is balanced between saltyness on the side of the tongue and additional sweetness on the front and tip of the tongue.

Smells like a pilsener, look like a pilsener, taste like... pisswater. Canít see any reason whatsoever why I should buy one of these ever again. Definately one of the worst beers I have ever tasted. Period.

I remember that beer from my holidays in Turkey. I drunk this beer for dinner, lunch, and this is good for quench thirst. Good momories with this but its nothing more than international lager. But i liked it ;)

Bottled at Ayhanís, Port Washington. Pours pale yellow with a slightly golden tinge, white head. Aroma is light pilsner malt, fruity berry notes, like strawberry. Flavor is very sweet but doesnít feel like an adjunct. Actually a solid pilsner. Just awfully sweet.

Bottle from B&M Home Bargains. Pours light gold colour, decent but quick-fading white head. Quite a heavy, dense taste. Reasonable lager

Bottle from systembolaget. Generic macro lager, hard to feel difference between them sometimes.

Fles gekregen, uitgeschonken in pilsener vaasje. Helder geel bier met kleine schuimkraag die vrijwel meteen inzakt, wel veel koolzuurbelletjes in het bier. Fles heeft houdbaarheidsdatum tot 15/08/2015, geur is zwak moutig, gekookte groenten, iets chemisch. De smaak valt erg tegen, ik dacht eerder aan een soort Mythos lager, het is echter nog een heel stuk slechter. Heel slecht van smaak eigenlijk, waterig, chemisch en onaangenaam bitter, een soort kookvocht van spruitjes, totaal geen smaakbalans, zelfs voor een lager erg matig. Omdat ik dit flesje heb gekregen ga ik er vanuit dat het verkeerd is opgeslagen en er te veel daglicht bij gekomen is en geÔnfecteerd is. Of het is gewoon te oud, hoewel het nog niet over de datum was. Ik kan me niet voorstellen dat een brouwerij zoiets slechts brouwt. Volgens mij heb ik het ooit in Turkije ook eens op, en toen was het beter/verser. Zo niet dan heb ik te doen met de toeristen in Turkije die deze kattenpis moeten drinken als ze een pilsje willen en er niets anders te verkrijgen is. Omdat deze fles vermoedelijk geÔnfecteerd is geef ik dit bier nog een tweede kans als ik het ergens nog eens tegenkom.

Dorada clara, ligeramente nebulosa. un dedo de espuma blanca. Aroma escaso, afortunadamente porque es poco agradable, indefinido y agrio. En boca sabor igualmente poco acertado, algo cereal, algo metŠlico y Šcido y nada conseguido. Gas notable y trago aguado. No agrada ni como simple refresco.

.5l chilled can from a doner stand in Vienna. I had this plenty when I was back in Turkey, but this is the first time since using RateBeer. Itís your typical international lager. Not terrible, but not good. Bland, generally flavorless, a bit of hay and grass malts. Meh.
