ehhdayton (1188) - USA - MAY 12, 2006
Aroma is slight with notes of malt and corn. The color is golden with a white head of short duration. A malty sweetness with a mild bitter finish greets the palate. A mild beer that is fairly plain.

zach8270 (3583) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 19, 2006
(bottle - 500 ml) Clear golden color with a thin and fizzy white head. Aroma is a mixture of sweet fruits, malt, corn, and alcohol. Taste is very sweet and malty with a very odd bitter aftertaste. Very harsh on the tongue and sour on the palate.

Cappadonna (110) - Delray Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Smells of pine. For a malt liquor, very good. Surprisingly sweet start with a moderately bitter/acidic finish. Dry texture- you can tell its got a relatively high alcohol content.

Best beer in Turkey but that doesnt say too much. The "extra" stands for the double alcohol content which basically turned a par beer into a below par one...

Bottle. Kinda skunky, but malt sweetness overrides it. Don’t put your nose up to the bottle. Maybe I have a taste for malt liquor, but I didn’t mind this one much; of the Efes line, I’d pick this or the dark, but if you’re in Turkey, stay away from beer altogether.

A can bought on vacation in Turkey. A bit sweet and a bit bitter. It is a good beer.

Cornfield (5544) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 24, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 After suffering through a six-pack of Efes Pils, you’d think I would’ve known better... but I was able to get this in a single 500ml. bottle, so... Initially this looks good, a clear yellow color with plenty of beading and a large frothy head. Then the bubbles and the head disappear, right as the metallic sweet corn aroma reaches the nose. This is medium-bodied corn squeezings with little razor shavings that scratch at the back of my throat, allowing the alcohol to burn the abrasions. The fumes are burning my nasal passages and I can feel my nostril hairs curling. There’s a bit of a gag reflex when I swallow. I’m getting a bit nervous about what might happen when I try to eliminate this....

Other than that, this is a fine malt liquor.

This is really undrinkable. Aroma of alcohol and corn. Very sweet and alcoholic flavour with some nasty plastic notes.

To my surprise this is a pretty good malt liquor. Sweet, malty, and some hop flavor. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.
