33 cl bottle. For so many, this will be our only beer from a Moslem country; although Turkey has in fact a very secular government. Passed up the chance to try it in Russia two years ago, and now it’s here in the States. Bit of a skunk when I first open it. Pours a pretty decent gold lager color, fizzy with a disappearing head. I actally taste some bitterness first off, not a lot, but enough to be surprising. I do get some adjunct to it, but it has lots of prickly effervescence to keep it from being too sweet. Bits of spice here and there give this more complexity than most world-wide exports. It stands out somewhat in a style dominated by blandness. Of course if it’s being exported from just one source, you need to play the odds to snare an unspoilt pack.

Ook weer een vakantiebier, Turkije. Drink het soms ook wel voor de sfeer in Turkse restauarants in Nederland. Niet heel bijzonder.

Turecki pilsner. Jasny, złoty kolor, nalewa się niemal bez piany. Aromat raczej nikły, nieco słodowy. W smaku lekko słodowe, ale ogólnie bardzo wodniste i tak naprawdę tego smaku jest niewiele... Raczej słabo!

Clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is pale malt, light grass, vegetable, some cardboard. Light bodied, poorly made, bad.

From Festival de las Naciones. In Teku glass. At dinner, with San Jacobo. Pretty dcent for an industrial lager. Not much taste, of course, but nothing unpleasant nor out of place, and refreshing

Waterig pilsje met niet heel smaak. Het alcohol percentage lijkt minder dan 5%, maar dat is niet zo. Schuimkraag is goed.

Vi svenskar tror att det är Turkiets nationalöl det här. Högre tankar har vi tydligen inte om turkarna. Men det kanske det är också, och då är det bara att beklaga på vilket uselt vis det här representerar nationen. Klen ljus malt och vek bäska ska tydligen bära landets fana. Det bleka utseendet är inte heller mycket att skryta med. På gränsen till landsförräderi.

330 ml bottle at ABV 5.0 % att Gökyüzü restaurant in Harringay. Aromas of malts and a little citrus. Clear golden body but barely any head. Taste is malts with citrus finish. Drinkable standard pale lager.

Zlotta (3268) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 22, 2017
Sampled from 0.5 l can as ’EFES Pilsener’ at 4.9% abv from local ’LIDL’, brewed in Germany, best before May 2018. Clear, golden yellow with a thin, frothy, stable, white head. Sweetish, slightly grassy aroma of grains and some straw. Sweetish, a bit grassy-spicy taste of grains, straw and slightest hints of spicy hops, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly grassy-spicy finish. Almost medium-bodied, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite okay, at least well-drinkable.

Tezminator (234) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 19, 2017
Nice and refreshing. The grassy aroma of your average lager. Taste has some grains and corn. Sweet. Okay.

MarcoBasile (412) - DENMARK - JUN 7, 2017
Pours golden and clear with a white frothy head. Taste is slightly sweet and corny. Pale malts and subtle hops. Refreshing. Smooth and crisp. Decent carbonation.
