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.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with tall, fluffy, white head and soda-like carbonation. Aroma is of fresh bread and some grassy hops. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is similar to aroma. Finish is short and dry. Inoffensive macro brew.

This beer has some very nice qualities. It was poured from the bottle into a frosted mug. Nice head with excellent curtain lacing that matched a silky smooth mouth feel. Honey taste that was light and crisp. Surprisingly, it is served at a local downtown pizzeria. This beer goes very well with supreme pizza!

Very refreshing, smooth turkish pilsener. This brew has a light golden color and a thick, white head. I tasted a pleasant citrus aroma with some hints of honey mixed with a nice grassy, floral hop bitterness. Amazing to drink on hot summer days or to wash down some Kebap or other turkish delights. One of the best european pilseners and the best turkish beer. I absolutely recommend this brew!
