Bomonti Filtresiz

Rating: 2.75

This one from the Efes brewery in Turkey is a 100% malt beer that I managed to get my hands on after it was brought back from Turkey for me last month. The beer will be my fourth from the Istanbul based Anadolu Efes brewery with all but their flagship Pilsen being brought back to the UK from Turkey for me as gifts. To be honest I’ve not particularly enjoyed their beers that much although their Pilsen is a nice enough lager if you are in the mood for it and rates slightly above the usual mass produced, bland lagers without being great. Bomonti Filtresiz isn’t a beer I had heard of and my guess is that it’s not going to be an easy one to find in the UK but I’m not expecting it to be that good if truth be told, hopefully it’ll prove drinkable though.

Appearance (3/5): A slightly cloudy looking, yellow straw colour with a thin, half centimetre tall head that is bubbly and bone white and eventually settles as a thick lacing.
Aroma (5/10): A definite pale lager aroma with some corn and lighter malts plus a helping of grain and some sweetness on top. There is a hint of barely in there but overall it is relatively bland on the nose.
Taste (5/10): Sweet grassy hops and some grain along with lighter, lager malts kick things off. There is a light bitterness to the taste with some sugar but again it is basic.
Palate (3/5): Light and slightly grainy with some watery patches. There is some sweetness and a light, mildly bitter finish that is dry and clean.

Overall (11/20): A basic pale lager that is very much what I was expecting from this one going in. The beer is just about drinkable but would probably taste better under the Turkish sun than it does back in the UK. Certainly nothing fancy, this one was basic and definitely could have been a lot worse than it turned out to be.

    Dude!! Its unfiltered hence cloudy but this isnt the original bomonti beer! Your friend got the wrong one, next time try just bomonti.

    another thing, ive been all around the world(including every EU country) and have tried beers from around the world, bomonti is by far my fav beer! easy to drink, best beer to drink when you want to just chill and relax. shame they dont have it in the uk.

      Fear not I’ve updated the name but the mention of the haze was a neutral comment & merely descriptive.

      As for it being your favourite, good for you. I very much doubt it’ll be mine though.
