Pours a clear straw color with a half inch, poorly retained white head that left no lacing. Smells and tastes of grains, corn, grass, sweet malts and a hint of lemon. Light bodied and carbonated, fairly bitter especially as it warms. A Turkish AAL.

This lager is straw-coloured with a light body and feel. It has a lower than average head and somewhat average, not particular taste. Though not particularly remarkable, it fills the ever-present role of the "not very good but cheap and available" beer that every country has, in this case for Turkey. I would call this the Turkish Carlsberg.

Thought I'd give this Turkish beer a try, and the first time I had it I really had a negative view of it. Tried it a second time and it was laid out that this is just not that good of a beer.

To start, it had a pretty skunky smell both times. The taste was pretty fruity and wasn't that enjoyable to me. The feel wasn't all that horrible but it did leave a pretty sticky aftertaste that I wasn't fond of.

From a 33cl bottle. Light amber color with a lacing of bubbles. Skunky smell at first, some sweet grain afterwards. Medium feel, heavy carbonation. Not much taste, but there's a base of sweet malt and a lingering warm feeling. A check mark for Turkey on my list, but pretty average otherwise.

A close second to Carlsberg Elephant for the worst beer I have ever had. Skunky, lightstuck, metallic, the list goes on. Stay away from this and green bottles

330ml bottle poured into a pint glass.

Crystal clear golden color, it tops with a finger of foamy white head that stands for a while before sinking to some bubble patch atop and leaving slight lacing.

In a nose, sweet corn, grain, bread, sulfur, and some earth.

Through the palate, it is just like the aroma, no real bitterness with slight grain sourness.

Light body with sharp carbonation, the feeling is crisp and refreshing with a clean finish.

Like an adjunct for me not a pils. Obviously corny and grain.

From Festival de las Naciones. In Teku glass. At dinner, with San Jacobo. Pretty dcent for an industrial lager. Not much taste, of course, but nothing unpleasant nor out of place, and refreshing
