Given to me by a Turkish friend. Thanks Deniz.
Pours a white fizzy head that fades somewhat quickly over brilliantly clear tan yellowish water color.
Nose of light pilsner malts, light malt extract, some decent lager aromas with light fruity yeast and crisp pilsner lager. Nothing I can pick out that's wrong.
Taste is light and very crisp with some light sweetness, some pilsner malts, little toasty and some malt extract, little wheat, some light lager yeast fruit. It has a slight bitterness as well. Finishes with a bitter aftertaste that is not the greatest but not bad with a crisp lager flavor.
Mouth is very light and crisp and decent carbonation.
Drinkability is decent with crisp lager and dry with no sticky finish. Pretty sessionable.

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.
