look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A- A bright gold color.

S- Sweet with hints of wheat. Not much smell, but what's there is good.

T- Very light tasting. A smidge more sweet than bitter. Smooth malts lead the taste, before leading into wheat. The hops are very much a background taste. Has slight notes of caramel.

M- Quite good actually. Felt great on the tongue. Smooth.

D- Non-offensive. I found it to be pretty good and it tasted very soft for 5.5%. Would be great for predrinking. I can't see how any people would dislike it, but it wasn't a masterpiece at the same time.

I agree with another reviewer on here in stating that Tuborg is a baffling brand to figure out which beer you're drinking....

A- Comes in a shiny golden can which IMO looks cool! The brew itself looks to be a clear golden color with plenty of big bubbly carbonation rising to the top. The head is cloud white but isn't fluffy like said cloud. It dissipates rather quickly into a thin layer of foam. Lacing looks to be somewhat oily and is modest in stickiness. An average looking lager at best!

S- A little bit of cloying sweetness, mixed in with some dry grassy notes. As I find with a lot of Euro lagers, there is a distinct aluminum metallic aroma, but this could be from the slightly higher alcohol, as I think I'm detecting some hints of it as well. Other than this, it is a mild smelling beer.

T- Nothing special to report here either...initially it is sweet like nougat out of a candy bar...just slightly sugary...a classic Euro lager flavor. That metallic character is noticeable on the palate, but is quickly subdued by a moderate spice/leafy hop bitterness.

M- I find this to be light in body and I think the carbonation is just right actually...not overdone like I thought it would be. The mouthfeel of this beer seems to be in line with what the style should be I think.

D- It's not a bad beer to drink and I think I could probably polish off several of these without problem, however, the booze would probably catch up to me after 2 or 3 pints. I think I'd go for something slightly more refreshing after a couple but still, nothing bad to give a try.

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.

500ml can poured into a pint glass.

A - Poured a clear gold colour. The foamy white 2cm head disappeared to a thin cap in a couple minutes. Minimal lacing.

S - A little sweet and a little grassy but overall mild.

T - A little sweet and a little bitter. Balanced but mild. I don't mind it but if your looking for tons of flavour you won't find it in this beer.

M - Not too carbonated. Crisp finish.

D - Very drinkable. There's enough flavour to know your drinking beer. My brother and I drank enough of these to know they are quite drinkable. We could drink them all night.

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.

Found this in my dad's fridge. No idea where he got it, never seen this before. So there's Copenhagen written all over this can but it's actually brewed in Turkey. Don't like the sound of that.

Poured into my Tuborg pilsner glass.

A- About four fingers of creamy, frothy, slightly yellowish head. Light gold liquid seems pretty carbonated. Lots of messy lacing like many other similar beers.

S- Not much. Slightly spicy grain. Getting something similar to saffron for some reason. Warmed up a bit and am now pretty sure the spiciness is coming from the hops. Seems to come as the head opens up and fade in unison with the head.

T- Seems to be more grain character than regular tuborg. The main taste and after-taste is creamy caramel and artificial vanilla, a bit like those cheap candy caramel cubes. Not much bitterness. Hops? No idea what they could be. I know there are hops in here but can't really describe them. Tastes a bit wrong/odd but okay.

M- Surprising how little carbonation there is in here. It's okay but really close to being flat which makes it a little dull and gross. Not very dry either.

D- Good except for the being flat part. If in a euro lager mood, I'll drink a four pack with little difficulty.

This is okay. I'd add this to my rotation of import canned Euro lager.

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.

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.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

A: Perfectly translucent straw yellow color. Head is big, foamy and pure white. Retention is bad though and absolutely no lacing.

S: Pale malts smell in there. Good brown sugar aroma. Some light herbal and floral hop aroma. Faint citrus. Light biscuit and multi grain bread.

T: Again, very similar to the smell. Brown sugar, light herbal, floral and citrus-y hops. Light biscuit and multi grain bread. Light tasting overall, but much more interesting than, let's say, Heineken.

M: Light body with medium to high level of carbonation. Nothing exceptional. Wish it could have been a tad heavier.

D: Very very high drinkability, which is pretty much the same for all low tasting lagers.

In short, nothing good and nothing bad, very average.

Not overly impressed with this beer, had it a few times (bottled mostly) while on holiday in Turkey, this review is of a can taken in my hotel room overlooking the pool.

Very hot day, very cold can, poured into a pint handled glass mug.

The gold coloured 50cl can promised 100% Malt, everything else appeared to be in Turkish, so not sure what else was added to the Malt, not even sure you can add anything to 100% of something?

Anyway the beer poured a bright golden colour and a good sized head of snow white foam sat on top.

The smell was weak, hints of Malts but very little of anything, the taste was also very weak, again with a malt feel more than a flavour.

This is a typical lightweight Euro Fizzy Lager and I'd expected more from Tuborg, even if it is brewed in Turkey.
