One Litre green bottle (twist top), ABV of only 4.1%, a true supermarket lager if ever I've come across one.
Obtained from a small store on the main street in Ovacik, Turkey. carried back to my hotel room, chilled and then poured (twice) into a pint handled glass.
Looked like a lager, the normal bright, clear, golden body with a fast reducing white head.
Very little smell, some citrus fruits maybe.
The taste was dry and semi-sour, the citrus hints from the aroma coming into their own within the flavours.
Thin in body and strength of depth.
Refreshing, but not a drinking mans beer.

Dark green and gold can, with barley stalks edging the GOLD lettering. Not much else to it except that it says to SERVE COLD, or "SOGUK ICINIZ" if you're Turkish.
Pretty insipid lemon yellow pee-colour, with a frothy loose-bubbled head that collapses into nothingness very quickly. You can see and hear the massive carbonation which feeds this baby, the low fizzle reminds me of a can of soft drink, not a beer.
Slightly earthy, body odour smell, maybe with a more pleasant dash of pastry or bread dough thrown in. Slightly salty even, like spray from the sea or a tequila slammer. In any case, it doesn't work, and leaves me very wary of what I'm about to put in my mouth.
Ooh. Err. Yeah, well the nose didn't lie, and there's not much to appreciate on the palate. Slightly metallic, rusty start, with a hint of old barnyards, or chewing on a wet nail. Finish disappears very rapidly, rather like it's trying to run away and hide, because it knows what a bad job it's doing. Slight note of soda water, overcarbonated.
Blech. What a joke. Manages to be quite offensive for a beer which ultimately you can forget very easily. Not very good by any standard. Stick to Vole! Even the ubiquitous Efes urinates liberally on this one.

A: Pours a pale clear yellow with a small white fizzy head. Light retention and some spotty lace.
S: Rather weak aromas. Your typical ho hum macro lager. Light grain, corn, and grassy hops.
T: Rather watery. Grainy with a very small dash of hops in the finish.
M: Thin, and watery.
D: One of the worst the the already below average Turkish beers.
