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.

Redelijke pils. Niet veel bijzonders aan maar natuurlijk heerlijk op een warm terras in Turkije.

Tjomleif (95) - NORWAY - JUL 22, 2016
Clear yellow color with average white head. Aroma is clear malt, bread. Taste is also bread, little bitter and actually with almost sweet finish. It’s a bit too watery, and boring, but drinkable.

Average commercial Pilsener. Mediocre appearance with low head with no lacing. Weak and malty aroma, bitter taste with some annoying off-flavours.

Michcio (483) - Gdansk, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Barwa jasnozłota, klarowne, piana biała, niezbyt obfita, ale się jakoś trzyma. W aromacie przede wszystkim skunks, utlenienie, poza tym nic się nie dzieje. W smaku wodniste, puste, lekko słodowo-słodkawe. Goryczka w kierunku niskiej (jak na niby pilsa to bardzo niska), wysycenie średnie. Pije się jeszcze nienajgorzej, ale i tak to straszny sikacz. Tylko na ekstremalne upały, właśnie w takiej Turcji na przykład.

coffee, roasty, skunky, pale, clear, minimal head, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, lively. Somewhat appealing grainy aroma, but overpowered by the skunkiness. Pale yellow, virtually no head to speak of. A bit sour, thin and malty. Pleasant, unoffensive cold beer.
