annunz123 (979) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Decent aroma of malt, grass, and hops. Flavor is pretty weak and watery, with a little hop bitterness. There’s something unpleasant I can’t place in the aftertaste. Bought this because I wanted to try something different, but this brings me back to the boring, mass-produced American beers of my youth (and that’s not a compliment).

This is really a nondescript pilsner with some artificial head. No flavour maybe but some grain, but sooo boring. Like. So. Bo. Ring! I still believe there is a lager factory somewhere on a remote island that spits these lagers out and applies different labels to them. Did I mention how boring this thing is?

Prakticky tady přidávám tento komentář, jen aby tady něco bylo, protože zpětně dopisuji 900 piv z mého seznamu a asi bych se musel u toho zbláznit.

50cl from tap. Yellow with moderate head, head lasts for a bit. Pretty fizzy, aroma is malt and taste is sweet. Quite watery. Refreshing, mediocre beer.

deniz (3) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 8, 2018 does not count
"The number 1 beer in the Mediterranean", my ass! However, hands down, best commercial beer from Anatolia. Nothing quite fancy or shinning about it really; it is robust in flavor and kind in aftertaste. But once you are hooked up on this old fella, you are gonna have drunk calls that you WONT forget.

A bit skunky aroma, medium carbonation. Bitter on the end. Average lager Beer.

GregMooreNH (578) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 11, 2018
Pours light golden with medium head. Aroma is slight caramel, grass and skunky. Taste starts with a hint of caramel before moving to a blah hoppy backbone. Finish is harsh. Not exactly my favorite beer.

kamilinho (476) - ToruÅ„, POLAND - FEB 9, 2018
hay, cereal, pale, clear, frothy, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation,

ectuohy27 (1345) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 4, 2018
Drinkable, slightly hoppy PL with some chalky astringency to go with everything else one would expect. Less hoppy on the finish. (Note: this is the 5.0% abv Turkish-produced version; the 4.9% abv Efes Deutschland canned brew is substantively different) (11.2 oz bottle, TBS lounge)

radassace (478) - SCOTLAND - FEB 3, 2018
Pours light straw with a small white head. Rushing volcano of carbonation. Nose is straw, grassy, lemon, bready with a slight macro adjunct aroma. Taste bready, lemon, rice, white pepper and a touch skunky. Refreshing enough on a hot day, but probably not one id buy again.

CanIHave4Beers (4291) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JAN 30, 2018
I had like three of these at the Istanbul airport, even more on the plane.
Pours a pale golden color with a big billowy head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is mild, but clean... some noble hop aroma is present only the lightest bit of breakfast cereal malt.

The flavor is clean, mildly bitter and pleasantly accentuated with noble hops. The maltiness is a touch sweet but fresh this doesn't even start in at the breakfast cereal thing.
A beer that doesn't need to be exported, it tastes like garbage abroad, and albeit not an exciting beer it drinks just fine fresh in it's home.
