1.4/5  rDev -37.2%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

Golden yellow with medium white head that settles leaving little to no lace.

Grainy, hints of earthy hops, slight grass and spicy notes.

Weak flavor, grainy lead with grassy hops noticeable, overall very lacking in flavor.

Dry, highly carbonated, medium smoothness

Not flavorful or interesting at all. No reason to drink it.

A: The beer is crystal clear deep yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that quickly died down, leaving lacing on the surface and some bubbles on the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of corn adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of corn adjuncts and grainy malts and has neither sweetness nor bitterness.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied and somewhat thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink. Although the taste isn't that interesting, it doesn't taste skunked despite coming in a clear bottle.

I am only really drinking this in order to say I've had all the Efes beers, but I did drink an entire bottle, so here goes: it's pale yellow. It smells strongly of grain. It tastes like corn and grass. The mouthfeel is incredibly light. There's some fizzy lemon to it. I don't know why I would ever drink it again.

This is the light lager version of Efes Pilsen and although hardly a great beer, it's not bad and actually quite good for the style, with definite, smoth flavour.

Pale yellow, it has a decent white head that steadily shrinks to a thin ring.

The aroma is grain and grass.

The taste is strong grain, mostly corn, with grass, a hint of lemon. It's simple and one-dimensional, but has more flavour and body than other "light lagers" and is reasonably tasty.
