far off the best turkish Tuborg beer u can drink out there. ABV is 8 percent with a hint taste of vodka..its strong and styleful.

smell is very sweet. probably lots of carb and grains.

taste is similar. u definetaly taste the vodka in it. sweet grains.. not really soury. ..very crispy

mouthfeel is dry and bitter. because of the high abv in it. it flows down very heavily. However you would expect it, the smell tells you all

overally this is a just-above-average strong beer. You would drink it for the heat it gives you. You would drink it for the strong sweet taste. and for its style.

Red 50cl can poured into a pint handled glass mug.

An off-white/cream coloured head sat on top of a deep golden body. Good lacing appeared as the beer sank in the glass.

Next to no aroma, gets my standard 3 score for odourless lagers/pilsners.

The taste was malts all the way, hid the alcohol at first, the 7.5% ABV appearing towards the end of the mouthfeel. The malt flavours give this beer a whole lot better depth of body compared to the normal Turk Tuborg Gold.

I was expecting a Strong Lager nasty, but this suprised me with its subtlety and taste.
