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.

uninspiring bland of beer that has corn and sugar in it, also does have a metalic taste whether it’s in a bottle, keg, can etc..

Flaša. Žltá číra farba, biela pena hneď spadla. Vôňa chmeľová, sladká, ryžová. V chuti typické europivo. Sladká sladovosť, ryža, ovocné tóny, chmeľ iba jemne v pozadí.

While taking a break in Istanbul. Light gold with foamy white head... After surviving the Grand Bazaar this was surprisingly light and refreshing... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Funk and cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Tastes better than it smells. Finishes clean.

0,3l can served on a plane. Typical lager, with no aroma, with no bitterness. Nothing special. But I have to admit that during long flight taste amazing.

Bottle@home. Another beauty, golden yellow, clear, white foam. Aroma of bread, grass, foot, caramel, some hops. Not horrible, not good either.

massingasetta (169) - München, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2014
Efes - ein Türkisches Bier in MAsterdam gekostet. Farbe und Geruch sind ansprechend und stimmig bis auf die nicht nennenswerte Krone. Einstieg ist frisch und fast Gewürzlos. Ich habe zu viel Durscht um diese Bier zu bewerten. Es ist verdammt erfrischend und im Körper kommen leichte Bitteerstoffe zum Vorschein. Hätte das Bier als Lager eingeschätzt, aber ist wohl Pils. Abgang ist glanzlos aber einheitlich - gut wenn der Grundgeschmack man als gut empfindet. Fazit: Gutes Bier aber nicht überragend.

Bottle-Hello Turkey! I remember thinking I had missed an opportunity to drink this beer at Epcot one time, since it would Turkey to my list. Now I’m glad I guess paid a bottle price at Total Wine instead of the $5 bottle at the park. Typical bud light type of lager. Total Wine.
