Efes is a pilsner brewed by the Anadolu Efes Brewery of Istanbul, Turkey. It contains 5% alcohol, and comes in a 500mL can. It pours a very pale straw colour, topped with a fluffy head of bright white. This brew is well carbonated and extremely clear--it looks really refreshing.
It has a pleasant grainy aroma. The flavour is sweeter than I expected, particularly the opening note. It's grainy with a bit of peaches and cream corn to it. Efes is unexpectedly smooth at the front end, but settles into characteristic pilsner crispness toward the finish.

Though not my favourite, I found this to be a pretty agreeable little lager. It's more nuanced than the typical thirst quencher, and its an official sponsor of Euroleague Basketball.
Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
