2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

Very light golden with little white head. Head vanished quickly. Light body. Slightly sour aroma. Taste is watery, little hopes. Overall average mass production pilsener.

Light crisp. Spritzy in mouth with no aftertaste which is good cos so many macro lagers can get sickly. Soo easily sunk . Fresh. Honestly could have gone far more bottles.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Originally rated on 9/8/08. Not a great beer but not bad as suspected Poured a golden yellow, highly carbonated body thick head that left some lace. Aroma and flavor were pretty standard except as it warmed it got a slight flavor of cardboard. Overall it was o.k. but nothing special.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 0,5 l Flasche. Aroma: erdig, minimal bitter. Erscheinung: Goldgelbes Bier, weißer Schaum, der schnell abbaut. Geschmack: leicht süßlich, leicht bitter. Nachgeschmack: wässrig, minimal bitter. Gesamt: Im heißen Sommer am Strand könnte es sehr gut den Durst löschen.

Had this beer from draft in Turkey. It has a clear yellow appearance. bit thin and watery. The taste a bit sweet so nothing like the other Pilsner beers i had. Maybe the taste made more for the local market. Not thrilled.
