Waited over a week for this to arrive at the "biggest and best" BC Government liquor store, and while not disappointed with it, I was not bowled over by excellence. Poured a well-carbonated light gold. Oh hell, it was more urine-like than Id like to admit. The head was a fair size, and foamy white, and left a modicum of lacing at the end. Aroma was fresh and lightly floral. The taste was again mildly floral, and refreshing. Mouthfeel was crisp, with a touch bitter on the aftertaste. Now Ive got my Turkish beer.

50cl bottle poured into a dimpled mug. Straw with modest white head. Aroma is sweet malt with a hint of floral hops. Very light malt flavor with the slightest hint of hops. Medium carbonation. Very light bitter finish. Pretty boring but drinkable.

Highly carbonated. lots of rapidly rising bubbles. bright yellow color. practically no smell. Very easy to drink essentially because it has no taste whatsoever. There is barely any aftertaste. Its like drinking water. I could not detect any flavors.

And they said it was all YELLOW. And this lager was indeed all yellow and had next to no taste but merely a rather unpleasant taste at the end of the day so this is basically not worth drinking.

Pours a pale amber with pretty much no head at all has a malty typical lager taste but its a little sweeter maybe some extra citrus taste and no hop taste its common macro but its not skunky so it gets an extra point for that

Can from the Drm restaurant.Pours clear, watery, yellow with small white head that quickly completely disappears.Sweet aroma with malts.The taste is also sweet, malts, somewhat watery. Only a very small hint of hops in the aftertaste. Good if youre very thirsty and theres no water around..

Bottle. Small white head with a very yellow colour body. Aroma sweet and malty,the taste is sweet with a hint of fruit. The finish is dry and short. It is drinkable just about.

Light light amber (pee) and appears really watery with a thin head, if youd even call it that - and its still bubbling. Smells a bit skunky but its so weak that describing it is tough - if you can find it, its dusty; really weak and mild - good or bad, its the lack of aroma that sets the tone. Tasty belch! Very grainy with some mild bitterness, but thats it. Quite dry..and maybe, just maybe a hint of something sugary sweet. Burns a bit on the way down - odd - leaves a lasting after-feel in the throat. Biscuty? Mouthfeel does not exist. More belching. Just finished it - before the review was complete - now thats a sign. Whats strange here is that its a better beer than the Nastro I just reviewed, but its so empty, its gonna get a lower rating. Beer to feed to beerless uneducated beggars visiting your house. You know who you are....

From a can after UEFA Cup Final, Istanbul. Pretty nasty stuff. Lets face it you dont go to Turkey expecting great beer do you ? Seem to recall having an EFES beer from a bottle that wasnt pilsen and wasnt as tasteless and naff as this. Whatever, this aint good. Stick to the wine or even the raki.
