A - brown bottle with what appears to be painted label. poured into tulip glass provided at restaurant in North Cyprus (Turkish). golden straw color with slight head that settled quickly.

S - Cereal, grain, some malt

T - Much like the smell, some light floral hint, tasted nice enough with very slight sweetness, I believe this is supposed to be Efes premium style.

M - medium body with no offensive aftertaste, refreshing.

O - Based on the beers of Turkey/North Cyprus, it went down nicely. I don't know that I would seek this beer out in any sense, it was simply average across the board as if their only goal was to not offend.

A gift from my cousin who just holidayed in Turkey. 500ml bottle. Pours a pale golden colour with a clear body & a big foamy white head. Aromas of grains, grass, bread & malt. Tastes of grains, grass, bread, honey & sweet malt. Aftertaste is sweet, grainy & malty.

Brown 50cl bottle poured into a pint handled glass in my hotel room on a very, very hot day in Ovacik, Turkey.

This is a supermarket beer (I assume) because I didn't see it in any bars while out in Turkey.

Looks and smells like a regular lager/pilsner, golden, bright, clear and more or less odourless.

The flavours were poor and weak, a watered down Efes Pilsner in all aspects. It was boring and had no redeeming features at all.

Pours a light golden color with a large frothy white head that quickly recedes to leave medium lace clumps and a barely noticeable layer of sporadic head.

Grainy nose, slight antiseptic smell, acidic, hints of sweet malts, overall weak aroma.

Grainy flavor just like the nose, hints of floral hops, some sweet caramel malt undertones.

Smooth bodied, medium carbonation, slight sour finish.

Drinkable but not anything to write home about.

A clear straw colored beer. A high white head with no lacing and no curtains.

Smelling of boiled vegetables and some non-specific sourness. Very weak.

Tasting sweet sugar, some alka-seltzer and alkaloid.

Medium high carbonation, a fresh texture. A small body with an un-dry finish.

An uninteresting experience, probably easy to drink for an uninterested drinker.

Thanks to a coworker/friend for bringing this back from Turkey for me to try.

Light fizzy head fades fairly quickly, little lacing, crystal clear golden chill hazed light pilsner color.

Nose light euro pilsner, light macro lager, some pilsner malt, light hint of saaz like hops, light mineral filled water,

Taste starts with a Euro pilsner, light and slight unhappy lager almost skunk, little bad lager, light sweet adjunct sugar additive, hint of bitterness more from bad lager than from the light hops, hint of lager fruit and pilsner. Finish has more light bad macro lager flavors slight skunk like and light sweet lager but fairly dry.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall meh, not a great beer but better than most trash pilsner beers, but not too bad.
