pours a clear gold color and shows very little head. The aroma is very light and maybe getting a touch of hops?. the flavor is malty and there is a carbonated fizziness that shines through. Overall, a decent beer but lacks a little more boldness in the flavor. Not bad for a Turkish beer !!

Pours crystal clear pale golden with a pure white head with decent retention and lace.
Smell: not a lot there, earthy and some faint citrus fruit.
Taste: Clean, crisp, refreshing, a touch of honey.
Pilsners are pretty simple beers and this one is good but not a lot to separate it from other
mundane Pilsners except its $10.00 a six pack price tag.

From a short and fat brown bottle, some drank from, most poured into a nucleated pint glass. Bottle hand-imported by a friend of mine direct from the source, Turkey.
Appearance - Golden and completely clear throughout. No head to speak of. Just perfect for this style.
Smell - Nothing much on the nose. Sweet malt, not too much hop aroma.
Taste - A lot of malt for how light it is, something I was craving at the time. Not really any hops to speak of, but it has been aging in my fridge door for about a year. A cigar previous to this is tainting the whole taste. Very good, light and refreshing.
Mouthfeel - Almost purely water feel with only a slight carbonation. This is evident by the small, quiet bubbles coming from the nucleation.
Overall - I think a wonderful example of the style of beer. Top class and glad I have another bottle.

The appearance is very good on this beer. Streaming carbonation and very good lacing and head retention.
The aroma is sweet and has notes of herbal hops, mineral water and sugar.
The taste is sweer with a slight bitter finish. One can tell it is attempting to emulate a good German pilsener. The taste is a little light with no off notes but nothing outstandingly pleasing either.
Mouthfeel is of mineral water,
Overall this beer is a lesser version of a German pilsner. They've added rice and made the flavour a little more bland. It is, however, an ok tasting beer and would suffice as a session beer with more quality than many European macro lagers. Better than Stella, Heineken etc.
My mark out of one hundred would be 75.
