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!

Turkey's only selection in the "1001."
To me, clearly was on the German side of the Pils family; malty, modest use of hops picked up by my nose. Delivered the same taste.
Otherwise, not memorable.

Pours clear, light gold in color with 1/4 inch head and moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet grain, sugar, and light grass. Tasty and refreshing. Above average for the style. One I would pick up again.
