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.

A: crystal clear; pale gold in color; 1+ finger moussy white head that receded to a splotchy cap very nice lacing;

S: mostly DMS - smelled it as soon as I popped the cap;

T: grainy; pilsner malt; lightly bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; highly carbonated; crisp;

O: might have been good if not for the aroma; as it was, to get a fair taste score, I had to hold my nose;

A very dry and light pilsner. Had a solid not overpowered taste of hops. The body was clear and golden and the smell had a hint of bread, nuts, and grain. The taste matches the aroma, with a very short period before disappearing. The head was thin, but visible and covered the entire beer before dissipating. Very subtle (yet tasty) and refreshing beer, especially for a casual night.
