I tried this beer at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. Don't see too many Greek beers around here and I never saw this one before, so I decided to give it a shot. 330ml green bottle with a best before date of 4/14 on the front label. Served in a pint glass for $5.

The beer poured a crystal clear pale gold color with 2-finger's worth of white head. The retention was good and so was the lacing. Not a bad look.

Weak nose. Just a little whiff of grassy hops and that's about it.

Taste wise it's a bit grainy, a bit grassy, and it has just a touch of bready malt sweetness to it along with mild hops for balance. Bitterness is low, but evident.

Light bodied with medium carbonation.

It's nothing special, but nothing bad about it either. I enjoyed it.

Basic mass produced generic lager from Greece. Had this poured out of the bottle into a pint glass in Santorini. The appearance is actually quite inviting, it pours a consistent golden yellow with little head, very crisp look to it. The taste is a little sour, it's basically the beer they have in most bars in Greece that's easy to get. The nose isn't so hot, smells a little sweet which was strange. Not so hot.

look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

.5L green glass bottle (ugh) with uninteresting label art and branded pry-off pressure cap acquired at a local corner mart here in Thessaloniki, Greece, and served into a generic cup. Served cold. Side-poured as no carbonation issues are anticipated. 5% ABV. BB: 02/15.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: Pours a one finger wide head of white colour. Decent thickness and creaminess. Fair complexion and consistency. No lacing sticks to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is average - about 2 minutes.

BODY: Clear translucent pale yellow-copper of average vibrance. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible. Clean.

Not a unique or special appearance for the style. Looks a bit underwhelming, but it's generally appealing overall.

AROMA: Clean barley, mild helles & pils malt sweetness, and a touch of floral hop notes. A pleasant aroma of mild strength overall. I'm optimistic, but it's not horribly appealing.

No yeast character, hop character, off-notes, or alcohol is detectable.

TASTE: Pils malts, a touch of diacetyl/buttery character, clean barley, a hint of floral hop character, and some generic helles malt sweetness. It's not imbalanced, but clearly it's not very carefully constructed. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour.

I guess I like it in a general sense. As with many beers in the style, it lacks complexity, intricacy, nuance, and subtlety. There's nothing unique or special going on here, and it's largely unremarkable.

TEXTURE: Smooth, wet, light, clean, and crisp. Not overcarbonated. This texture suits the taste well enough. It's fairly executed, and I'm impressed they can do this on a large scale. It's light-bodied, with a nice overall presence on the palate. No complaints here, but it's not custom-tailored specifically to the taste by any means.

OVERALL: You've had a beer that tastes just like this before - regardless of which country you're from. It fills Greece's 'generic drinkable lager' category, and there's nothing wrong with that. I've definitely had worse, and this is refreshing in the hot summer. Hides its ABV well enough. I could have a 6-pack of this in one sitting. Surprisingly enjoyable for a beer at this price point.
