Nice golden colour with white foam lacy head. Sweet aroma, light bodied. This would be a nice light summer beer for friends on moving day, but has some issues: almost no hops, tastes like sweet corn which is likely dextrose (corn sugar), has a metallic aftertaste which my wife called "machinery tang". Overall, I rate this average to low, and its just not very Interesting. I do notice that while this is Turkish, it is brewed for Canadians. While abv is 5.5 seems like an American beer, with the distinction of a light bitter aftertaste. JSJ P.S. after being in a high temp jacuzzi Oman empty stomach, the 5.5%abv hit me, and I’m now feeling a little more generous.

Bon, ça semble être assez compliqué pour trouver l’origine de cette bière...J’en arrive ici, de la Turquie?! Faut croire. Alors elle est blonde dorée ayant une mousse éphémère. Une odeur aigre qui picote les narines, alors que des arômes de sirop de maïs en émanent. Le goût est insipide. C’est mince en bouche. J’en suis tellement déçu et insatisfait, alors, on passe à autre chose. Même Homer Simpson n’en voudrait pas...(375-270912)

500ml Can. Pours pale golden with white head. Aroma and taste are of malt, sweetness, some corn. Good carbonation, easily drinkable. Overall: Refreshing beer, but far from being interesting.

Light beer with a lot of beer flavor. But it’s like a regular beer. Not so much. Perhaps the most common beer in the world.

Got this in a tall can at the Fort Street BC Liquor Store... and didn’t care for it much. Definitely corn syrup, quite metallic. Swill is swill who cares where it comes from? I just wanted the tick to be honest.

500 ml can Pure Gold 5.5% Clear bright golden yellow, foamy white head settles and lingers. Sweet corny grainy aroma. Sweet fruity malty taste, silky and soft. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Lightly bitter in the finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
