Don't care for this so much. Poured with a big thick foamy frothy head. Very pale yellow color. Some lace. Skunky aroma. Funky, sweet, wet cardboard, chemical flavor. Too much body for the style. Little undercarbonated. Neutral sweet finish. Won't be having another.

Pours a light fizzy yellow under a thick frothy head the quickly disappears leaving no traces.

Grainy malts, slight grassy and possibly floral hops.

Grainy stale taste, corn?, ester undertones, grassy hops noticeable.

somewhat smooth with medium carbonation, fizzy, but a hard to place slightly off feeling.

Not impressed at all. Probably will not have one again.

500ml Bottle, hand delivered from Turkey.

Light golden straw, clear with a two-finger sized white head with good retention and some lacing left on glass.

Very skunky with tonnes of corn & even more grain. Some grassy hops but not a lot showing because of the grain.

Quite sweet and malty tasting with some hops. Tonnes of grain again & some corn. Not enjoyable.

Light bodied with tonnes of carbonation & a dry, chalky aftertaste & a slightly watery feel.

Not great in any area other than the appearance. One to avoid unless you've tried everything else on offer, and even this it probably isn't worth your while.

Not as good as the regular Efes pilsner. Head and smell both disappeared quickly--my initial impression was relatively malty and bready but that disappeared to be replaced by a faint hop smell.

Very standard pilsner taste and pilsner hops with a hugely chemical undertone, an overly-carbonated mouthfeel, and a soapy aftertaste. I'm not sure this one would pass the purity law.

Appearance- Pours a clear, pale yellow gold under a decent white head wıth no stayıng power. No lace at all.

Aroma- Not quite as good as a German Pılsner should be, but the nose is descent. Decent malt sweetness wıth a touch of hops. Some bready aromas ın there. Not great, but nothıng overly objectionalble.

Taste- Pretty standard pilsner taste. Decent blend of malt sweetness and bıtterıng hops. Something else that shouldn't be there, but İ really can't put my finger on it. Soapy, or wet cardboard? Whatever it is, it ain't supposed to be there.

Mouth-feel: Pretty standard pils for body, but a haır under-carbonated.

Drinkability: It's not wretched, but stick with the Efe Pils.

My bottle says Efes Draft.

A - Pours an apple juice like colour with medium carbonation and a thin film of white 'head'. Bright.

S - Grassy hops with some straw/grain aromas and some sweet malt.

T - Typical Euro lager sorta taste. Not too sweet which is nice but it's not overly tasty. I got some faint hops and sweet malt and that's about it. Not too interesting. Tastes kinda like apple juice.

M - Lot's of carbonation in the mouth, light body. Sweet finish.

D - Not particularily interesting. Not something I would look for. The bottle was what got me to be honest but I won't be finishing half of it. Just not worth the effort. Not as bad as some Euro lagers but still not really that interesting.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a very pale yellow hue with a tall fizzy white head. Okay retention with no real lace.

S: Simple aromas of sweet grainy malt with a hint of grassy hops.

T: Nice sweet bready malt, light hints of corn. A touch of grassy hops but not quite as much as the regular version.

M: Light in body, so so carbonation.

D: Okay but there are better Efes in Turkey.
