   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 9/20
DrnkMcDermott (2835) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 2, 2006
33 cl bottle. For so many, this will be our only beer from a Moslem country; although Turkey has in fact a very secular government. Passed up the chance to try it in Russia two years ago, and now it’s here in the States. Bit of a skunk when I first open it. Pours a pretty decent gold lager color, fizzy with a disappearing head. I actally taste some bitterness first off, not a lot, but enough to be surprising. I do get some adjunct to it, but it has lots of prickly effervescence to keep it from being too sweet. Bits of spice here and there give this more complexity than most world-wide exports. It stands out somewhat in a style dominated by blandness. Of course if it’s being exported from just one source, you need to play the odds to snare an unspoilt pack.

budedou (427) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle. Light clear gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is slightly skunky on account of the green glass, but manages some fruity and doughy notes. Taste follows. Thin mouthfeel and long finish. About what you’d expect.

Cybercat (3489) - Georgia, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Pours a clear straw yellow with a thick ivory head. Aroma is crisp and malty, no great shakes but not off-putting either. Wan flavor is malty and a little fruity. Texture has average thickness, not much fizz. Not much of a beer, but fine with lunch. Had to have this at a Turkish restaurant.

@ Havregatan 141205. Bottle (500 ml) from Systembolaget. Sweet malty and grainy with grassy and hayish notes, medium body with a watery texture. The finish is dry, bitter and malty.

mariuszek (73) - Gdynia, POLAND - NOV 25, 2014
Yellow color, white not lasting head, sweet malt and corn in aroma. Taste sweet and malty. No hops no bitterness. Boring lager.

Lore (1203) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 22, 2014
Clear golden colour, minimal white head; aroma of hay, corn and some grass; taste of a watery lager - I’m really sorry those people who believe that it is a pilsner and not a poor quality pale lager
