2.71/5  rDev 0%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

500ml bottle brought home from Turkey:
Cloudy, yellow straw colour with a thin, half cm tall head that is bubbly and bone white & eventually settles as a thick lacing.

Corn and lighter malts plus a helping of grain and some sweetness on top. There is a hint of barely in there but overall it is relatively bland on the nose.

Grassy hops and some grain along with lighter, lager malts kick things off. There is a light bitterness to the taste with some sugar but again it is basic.

Light & slightly grainy with some watery patches. There is some sweetness and a light, mildly bitter finish that is dry and clean.

A basic pale lager that is very much what I was expecting from this one going in. Nothing fancy, this one was basic and definitely could have been a lot worse than it turned out to be.

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

A - brown bottle with what appears to be painted label. poured into tulip glass provided at restaurant in North Cyprus (Turkish). golden straw color with slight head that settled quickly.

S - Cereal, grain, some malt

T - Much like the smell, some light floral hint, tasted nice enough with very slight sweetness, I believe this is supposed to be Efes premium style.

M - medium body with no offensive aftertaste, refreshing.

O - Based on the beers of Turkey/North Cyprus, it went down nicely. I don't know that I would seek this beer out in any sense, it was simply average across the board as if their only goal was to not offend.

Thanks to a coworker/friend for bringing this back from Turkey for me to try.

Light fizzy head fades fairly quickly, little lacing, crystal clear golden chill hazed light pilsner color.

Nose light euro pilsner, light macro lager, some pilsner malt, light hint of saaz like hops, light mineral filled water,

Taste starts with a Euro pilsner, light and slight unhappy lager almost skunk, little bad lager, light sweet adjunct sugar additive, hint of bitterness more from bad lager than from the light hops, hint of lager fruit and pilsner. Finish has more light bad macro lager flavors slight skunk like and light sweet lager but fairly dry.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall meh, not a great beer but better than most trash pilsner beers, but not too bad.

Thanks to JLindros for sharing this bottle.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear piss yellow hue with a one finger white head that leaves thin wisps and a halo.

S - Aromas of strong malts and cereal grains.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with lots of malts and heavy grain. Very one dimensional.

M - Mouthfeel is crisp and clean with nice light carbonation.

O - Overall this isn't a bad euro pale ale fairly average. Glad I got to try!

2.08/5  rDev -23.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A clear straw colored beer. A high white head with no lacing and no curtains.

Smelling of boiled vegetables and some non-specific sourness. Very weak.

Tasting sweet sugar, some alka-seltzer and alkaloid.

Medium high carbonation, a fresh texture. A small body with an un-dry finish.

An uninteresting experience, probably easy to drink for an uninterested drinker.

Smells like an antiseptic bubble gum, with a grainy flavor with some hints of sweet malt. Inoffensive mouthfeel, but slightly sour with more of that bubble gum in the aftertaste.

I don't see any advantages over Efes--this is just more watered down, and really smells foul.

Virginia

2.68/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Pours a light golden color with a large frothy white head that quickly recedes to leave medium lace clumps and a barely noticeable layer of sporadic head.

Grainy nose, slight antiseptic smell, acidic, hints of sweet malts, overall weak aroma.

Grainy flavor just like the nose, hints of floral hops, some sweet caramel malt undertones.

Smooth bodied, medium carbonation, slight sour finish.

Drinkable but not anything to write home about.

2.63/5  rDev -3%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Brown 50cl bottle poured into a pint handled glass in my hotel room on a very, very hot day in Ovacik, Turkey.

This is a supermarket beer (I assume) because I didn't see it in any bars while out in Turkey.

Looks and smells like a regular lager/pilsner, golden, bright, clear and more or less odourless.

The flavours were poor and weak, a watered down Efes Pilsner in all aspects. It was boring and had no redeeming features at all.
