look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

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.

I have a tendency to be skeptical of things that proclaim themselves to be gold. However, the Green lager was at least passable, and gold has to be better than green, right? Right? Once again, this can of Danish beer was made in Turkey, with labelling that submits the fact that it possesses a "Perfectly Balanced" flavour. A little vague, but at least they didn't claim it to be cold-tasting or something equally stupid.

This beer is - presumably not coincidentally, considering the name - a translucent pale golden colour, only slightly darker than its green cousin. A frothy off-white head develops but has receded to wisps and a thin collar after a minute. Smell is very uninteresting - slightly sweet; basically identical to the green version except with a twinge of ethanol on the nose.

Taste is a little weird, and not in a very good way; mostly malt characters though. I want to say that it tastes sweet, but it's really more of a tangy flavour, and the whole profile has an unpleasant hybrid grain/vegetal quality to it. There is some lemony hop bitterness as well, but alcohol and that weird tangy sweetness overtake it in the finish. Mouthfeel is mostly thin, but the booze and sweetness make your mouth feel sticky afterward.

This is the closest I have come to a drainpour in a long time, but I will soldier on through the whole 500 mL can. I am not particularly hard to please when it comes to beer. Especially EPLs, a style which is fairly simple, and is represented by literally hundreds of decent or better examples. This isn't one of them - frankly I can think of many domestic macros I would prefer over this. If you must drink a Tuborg, the green one is far less offensive.

[Updated Oct. 18 2013]

I picked up another can, and compared it side-by-side with Stella, Heineken and Grolsch. My old review is still completely accurate - this is a terrible beer and I really cannot emphasize that enough. It's sweet, corny, kind of boozy, and just plain gross - even getting through a single can is a struggle. It is difficult to do worse than this without foolishly stumbling into Malt Liquor country.

Final Grade: 2.45, a D+.

This beer was on sale this time so I tried it again. Liked it better this time. Poured into a 10 oz. pilsener glass.

A - Lacks carbonation but the color indicates great attention to detail in the blend
between the hops and the malt.

S - Bready, and has some warmth from the slightly higher ABV (5.5%).

T - On the nose I note the amazing floral quality of it. It's got some hops in there
for sure, it's

M - Fizzy and palatable.

Overall: Try it and you will go back for more. It's a good beer and well balanced for its high ABV.

500ml Bottle, gift purchased in Turkey.

Golden straw colour with a pinky-sized, foamy white head that leaves a soapy lacing after a minute or two.

Quite mild & creamy with a lot of bread & corn for the adjuncts. Some sweet malts present along with some mild grassy hops too. An above average smelling pale lager.

Lots of grassy hops upfront, mixed in with some sweet malts & nice combination of corn & bread. Has a solid taste & there is some nice citrus lemon flavours towards the end.

Light bodied without being watered down or weak, the beer has a slight fizz at the back end on the tongue & a pleasant bitter finish that isn't too strong.

This beer has been a huge surprise and went down pretty well. A good pale lager that I'll drink again if I can find it again.
