Episode 087 – Efes Pilsner
Our first beer from Turkey! Efes is the largest beer brand in Turkey, with about an 82% market share. Although originally a national brand, Efes is now owned by the international Efes Beverage Group, who are responsible for distributing Coke in Turkey, and contract-brewing other brands, such as Warsteiner, for the region.
Efes Pilsner, an “American Adjunct Lager” style beer made partially with rice (which usually elicits low ratings from both of us) scores in the mid-80s – not bad for a mass-produced adjunct lager.
