Thursday’s beer from the other side of the world: Efes Turkish Pilsner

The country of Turkey is not renowned as an epicenter of great beer, so it was with some trepidation that we sampled Efes Pilsener. Our wory qulckly dissolved after the first sip.

First off, it is decidedly not a pilsner. With it’s sweetish flavor and prominent malt character, Efes more closely resembles a Munich lager. It’s also darker than a pils. All in all, it’s not a bad beer. I would order this if I saw it in a pub.

So hats off to Efes, the best “beer from the other side of the world” we’ve talked about so far.
