A good upgrade of the normal Efes. The Extra has better aroma, flavor and a nice palate.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Good golden color,small white head that lasted for a short time then faded to leave little behind.The aroma was light malt and maybe a bit of corn as well as some fruit and hops but faint at best.The flavor was forgettable.Light malt some cereal like qualities along with a bit of hops and little more then that.Nothing special but it is tollerable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, brought back as a gift from Turkey. A sweet, malty biscuity aroma to this yellow coloured beer with little carbonation. The tatse is sweet, malty and chewy. My first ever malt liquour and I am surprised how reasonable it is with some real taste in there. So much better than most lagers.

Not as bad as I thought Turkish malt liquor would be... this one is malty, bitter, and pours with a tall firm head.
Obviously. best drank before the "green bottle syndrome" sets in!

Malty nose, golden, pours a large, firm off-white head. Strong corn mash, alcohol taste. Harsh. Poor. Thanks to Michael Robis at Chesters Beers of the World in Hamilton!

Bottle. This beer formed a small sized white head with fine-medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The body was transparent with continuous fast rising carbonation and a yellow-gold hue. The nose was malty, lightly hoppy, sweet and notes of alcohol. The flavor of this beer was sweet tasting, malty and some alcohol. The mouthfeel was smooth and this was a medium bodied beer with sparse lacing.

bottled-- and in good shape. turkey is a vast, hard land, filled with good people of mostly simple means. they don't have the leisure or oppulence to load every beer with bready, sophisticated malts, gobs of yeast and tertiary fermentations. they burn coal to stay warm this time of year, and the sidewalks in cities are dotted with the phlemy spit of pedestrians choking in the grey smoke-tainted ambience. but hey, nothing cuts that phelm like a good strong sweet lager-- and this is it. drinking this, i was not in turkey, nor troubled with any pulmonary malady, yet this pilsner/malt liquour performed very nicely for me. dried corn golden, clear as a bermuda sky, with heaps of ocean surf white foam. surprisingly full lager aroma: hops apparent, dried flowers, grass, apple and light alcohol. it's sweet, which perplexed me at first, (not knowing it was classified as a malt liquour), but i considered that it was no more sweet than an oktoberfest or a vienna. good pils carb, flavor of grains, golden tobacco, and an oak-steeped alcohol tinge-- plus a good hop bite-- no trashy adjuncts, and surprisingly full bodied. in old istanbul one might say it's constant and noble.
