Several years ago I wrote a review of a beer I had never drunk and would never have a chance to drink. That was a beer that had been brewed in Istanbul at the turn of the 20th century by the Bomonti Brothers and that had since gone extinct.
So imagine my surprise at a restaurant in Istanbul last June when the waiter told me they had "Bomonti Beer". In disbelief I said "Bomonti?" He said "yes, Bomonti". So I ordered a bottle of Bomonti.
Of course, it wasn't the original Bomonti beer. An inspection of the label on the bottle revealed that this Bomonti was a product of the company that brews Efes, a popular Turkish beer. Like Efes, Bomonti was also a rather mild beer with a rather weak flavor. I suspect it was indeed Efes in a different bottle.
Who knows how the original Bomonti beer was brewed. But read my review of it. It'll give you an idea of what it may have tasted like.
