An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet matly and slightly alcoholic. The flavor is sweet with notes of plastic and peaches.

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 (5452) - 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.

beerslayer (753) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2004
To my surprise this is a pretty good malt liquor. Sweet, malty, and some hop flavor. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2004
Bottle pours a vibrant translucent yellow, small fizzy white head, soft carbonation, with so-so lacing.   Corn, light malts, and sweetness on the nose.   Forwardly sweet, slightly tart, with some candy corn like flavor.   Medium body, decent mouthfeel.   Finishes somewhat astringent and medicinal, but also kinda candy sweet.   A bit too sweet for my taste.

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