Ummm ... what to say? It’s a malt liquor. Grab your paper bag and head for the stoop. Coppery pour fizzy head. Metallic nose with a little skunk. No real subtlety - strong alcohol and beer flavors.

0,5 l can in a hotel. Pours dark golden, small white head, nearly no CO2. Soft malt and rice on the nose. Starts malty and sweet alcoholic nearly like liquor. Later hints of wood, berries and sweet bread. Better than expected.

Fra (flere) flasker i Alanya:av alle Efes sine syltynne saker fremstår denne som med litt mer av det som gir litt ølfølelse, men det skyldes natulrigvis voltstyrken. I godt nedkjølt tilstand er det en brukbar (men søvndyssende) tørsteslukker på en varm strand. Tragisk at Efes/Tuborg har noe som minner om monopol i Tyrkia.

Absolutely the worst beer that brewed by Anadolu Efes, especially in Turkey...

1.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
500ml Can in Ataturk airport, Istanbul:
Very sweet sugar, lots of alcohol and grain plus a hint of butterscotch that I wasn’t expecting. There is some honey and faint lemon as well. Bad but not disgusting.
Clear yellow straw with a small, bubbly head that is bone white and slowly turns patchy.
This one tastes truly awful and is very hard to drink. The taste is sweet with tonnes of alcohol, a lot more than the 7.5% abv. on the can suggests. There is a lot of grain, a slightly skunky taste and some faint lemon. There is a hint of hops and a strong, syrupy sugar taste that results in nothing more than drain pour.
Very sweet and thin with a lot of sugar that makes the drink seem more like a watered down syrup than a beer. Cheap tasting and over carbonated resulting in a gassy body that was making me feel sick after only a few sips.
I’m not sure what I was thinking buying this and thankfully it counts as a new style that I have tried because it had nothing else going for it. Granted it is strong and cheap but why this one was on sale in an airport is beyond me, and since it was an airport it wasn’t all that cheap. Disgusting from start to finish with too much sugar, alcohol and grain throughout and on top of that I was drinking it from a plastic cup on an airport floor so that didn’t exactly help it any. That being said, nothing was saving this one.

Can shared at the ChrisO Flags of Many Nations Easter Tasting 2013 - London. Pours clear yellow with a fine, white cream head. Nose of sweet, doughy white bread. Medium to big sweet flavor with cereal, dough, hay. Medium to full bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sticky sweet finish with sugary dough, faint alcohol, cereal, touches of bitter hay. Good balance, nice depth. Turkey’s contribution to the malt liquor catalogue is a respectable one indeed.

.5l can on the Bosphorus. Rich, not terrible, strong lager. Some more flavor than most, dry alc bittering. Cherry, corn. Hot and grassy. I was tasting this and thinking, this could be a lot worse. Still rough, still overdone.
