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 wasnt 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.
Im 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 wasnt 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 didnt 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. Turkeys 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.

5/11/13. 500mL can from Keir who sent this to me after his vacation in Turkey without any return demands! What a freakin awesome dude! Clear golden amber pour with basically no head. So many malt liquors just taste the same... hay, fusels, corn, grapes, and... well... it tastes like malt liquor. Get a few more deep and youll understand. RG understands
