My friend BillF. picked this up for me on a recent trip to Nova Scotia, Canada. Turkish beer in Canada? I don't ask questions, I just drink it.
Appearance 3.25: Pours out a completely translucent, golden color. Lots of CO2 bubbles everywhere. Small head, but nice foamy residue that stayed the entire session. Lacing just OK.
Smell 3.0: Yep, that's a lager. Typical phenols and bubblegumminess. Nothing skunky, however.
Taste 3.5: Front is somewhat sweet, with very little flavor. A wave of semi-sweet light malt comes sweeping in in the Middle, and carries with it the familiar lager tastes: corn, bubble-gum, light grains. Finish is where more of the corniness and a very light taste of hops comes in and fades away quickly. Aftertaste is short, with one more hint of classic lager flavor and then quickly and pleasantly fades away.
Mouthfeel 3.5: Certainly reflects the style well. Light and refreshing.
Overall 3.5: You certainly could do a lot worse than this beer. It is the old-fashioned "easy drinking" lager and would be great with any food you could think of pairing it. Also excellent as a go-to sessioner. It's a lager all the way, folks. Don't like lagers, don't buy this baby. Plain and simple.

A - Transparent golden hue with a thin white head. Poor retention
S - Sweet malts. Nothing else going on.
T - Stale biscuits which turn dry in a hurry. Wetness turns dry as the beer finishes. Unpleasant.
M - Lively carbonation covers an thin body.
O - Just a bad beer, not worth the calories. Avoid it.

One 500ml can from LCBO. Served cold into pint glass.
Appearance - Nice clear pale golden color. 1.5 fingers of head that disappears quickly. Significant bubbles within the glass are visible.
Smell - Bready, grassy with a bit of skunkiness. Nothing big or unusual for the style. Slight metallicness that is not unbecoming in this instance.
Taste - Slight sweetness up front, minimal bitterness and slight bready, grassy flavors. Not much in the way aftertaste. For whatever reason, I actually kind of liked the way everything was put together here.
Mouthfeel - Decent body, but a bit flatter than expected. Moderately wet thirst quenching finish.
Overall - OK, Euro lager, but nothing special for the style.
