2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A shade darker than straw yellow no head. Nose is bland other than hint of smoke. Smoky mouth backed by crackery sweetness and faint grass. Not my cup of tea, but not too shabby none the less.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear gold with a white head. Lightly smokey and sweet grain, and the stuff they put on puke in a bar...but in a good way (never thought I’d write that) in the aroma. Medium body. Flavor is smoked ham, salty, a bit sweet, and light malts. Not all that smoky overall. This could be a good gateway beer for people who haven’t been introduced to smoked beers. Not a great beer, but it is interesting.

Disappointingly the only beer other than the Marzen (which even had a problem) which was available when I went. Aroma is malty with some fruit but no sign of the elusive smoke. Taste is hardly a smoke bomb. Pretty decent but I wouldn’t be waving that smoke flag so much and serve this.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
A - Clear golden with a 1/2 inch chunky white head that dissipates quickly. No lacing.
S - Brie cheese coated with honey, doughy bread, sour cream, buttery diacetyl.
T - Follows the nose somewhat, soft cheese, sour cream, tangy pear, buttery diacetyl. Thick crystal and pale malt, maybe a little thin smokiness. An unpleasant bad fruit character. Has a sour processed meat type of flavor. Finishes malty and sweet.
M -Low carbonation, thick and slick.
Nasty diacetyl. Gross movie popcorn type of diacetyl. It takes over all flavors and the finish is thick and narsty. No smoke, I don’t know what this is? This is close to undrinkable.
Serving type: bottle

Great aroma and taste. The one and only local smoked lager beer @ Turkish market. The smoke taste is very succesful, overall it deserves a 5 star rating

Looks like a lager, smells like cheese, tastes like a smoked meat.. An alternative taste from Turkey's first craft brewery..

Felt like you’re eating barbecued pig, but still nice, it’s stomach filling.
