For a commercial beer it is above average, an every day beer. Just right amount of bitterness.

Many thanks for Anadolu Efes Brewery to meet us such a different, original and famous beers in Turkey. Attractive bottle. Durable white head and fresh flowery smell. Little bit malty taste..

Yellow, bubbly, apple-sweet and mundane. At least you can wash and re-use the bottle.

Pint from Nine bar, Newcastle. Pours light golden colour, fresh and nicely carbonated. Quite sweet aroma, light hoppy flavour with a good malty aftertaste. Enjoyed at the best time outside on a summer Friday evening

Tstamba (295) - Maryland, USA - JUL 7, 2014
From swing top bottle to a pint while cruising Med in 2014. Light gold with white head. Nice balance of hop and malt, mellow flavor very drinkable. Dutch macro lager but better than most.

500 ml can bought at 7-Eleven in Metropolis Plaza, Sheung Shui.

Clear light golden yellow colour; Explosive three finger head and crumpety white foam which lasted for 3 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing with slightly fizzy carbonation; Sweet aroma of malt, with molasses, faint floral, bread, yeast, light lemon and light grass; Close to light sweet taste of malt, with molasses notes, light bread, very light yeast, light lemon and faint bitter grassy hops; Close to light body, quite slick palate; Mouth feel is thinned but still with pretty full maltyness, no syrupy feel, pretty much sugar-less in palate with bits of molasses. Light bready, no off taste, mild citrusy hop presence. So-so!... Hoppiness is light lemon and thin grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is nearly mute in background, for a mostly faint bitter malty finish; Slightly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: I stayed away the flip-top green bottle for so long and waited for this canned version, only to be disappointed by its watered down approach. It’s not yet to the point of macro Pale Lager, but as a Premium, you just wish these macro big boys can have some heart, in putting less water and just let us taste the already pretty decent brew. We can wish for the sky, of course. Meh!

Icedwarf (270) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2014
Helder geel bier met schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en iets zuur, zuur fruit en graan. Blijft gemiddeld lang hangen. Heerlijk bier, één van de betere.
