From the green 330 ml. bottle with the label stamped EMRE L76. Sampled on December 16, 2016.

The pour is golden yellow with a lingering white head. Busy carbonation.

This was one of the slightly skunked versions but not overwhelming. I still got a distinct sour dough, toasted bread, and grassy hop character in the aroma.

Light to medium body and smooth.

The taste has a forward white bread sour dough bread malt note but not as toasty as the aroma suggests. Clean, crisp, and grassy finish. Very easy to drink.

From the bottle in a snifter. This pils via a friend from work (Thanks Kevin) pours
a crystal clear yellow with a quickly dissipating head of white foam that goes
away FAST. Nose of sweet malts and medium strong grain notes. Flavors
follow the nose with sweet malts and grain notes with a touch of sourness
and herbal hops finishing lightly dry. Decent mouth feel but nothing to grab about
with low carbonation and clean finish. A Miller High Life brewed in Turkey---decent.

Pretty good ! Malty and wet with a little harshness. Give it a try...you could do a lot worse.

The beer of choice for the Turkish population. A decent German Style Pilsener. Pours nicely with a very clear, golden yellow, bright look and has a decent head.

Smells and tastes all right with very malty character, but somehow, this refreshing beer has been a little bit rough to drink for me.

Review: Can of Efes Pilsen: ABV: 5%

The “number one Mediterranean beer in the world” as their slogan says, which is a big ask but lets see….

On pour has a very clear golden yellow colour, looks good, has a nice head, not a bad looking beer at all, light, looks good

Had a nice beery smell, nice smell of malts and grains, very nice,

Got a lot of fruits on the nose. Nice aroma

The taste was very sweet, lots of malts
In a weird way it tasted like washing up liquid, but strangely not in a bad way! A starchy kind of taste.
Not bad, but sweet
A smooth beer, very drinkable, light, dont really get the 5%

Some hops present, a little sour, but not overly bitter,
Really smooth,

Drinkable, goes down well. Overall, ok, but I think I might need to try this one again for another sitting……

From the bottle, it pours golden amber in color with a moderate head. The head lasts a bit. Some bread in the nose, followed by a nicely flavored slightly malty beer with a touch of Pilsener bitterness. Yum!
