4.7/5  rDev +74.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Mythos has a medium, slightly off-white head, and a clear, golden appearance, with some bubble streams and a very minimal amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, sweet, and full barley malt and a slight hop zing. Flavor is of sweet, sugary malt, light biscuit, grassy, and mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Mythos finishes semi-dry, crisp, refreshing, and supremely drinkable. Could this be the best lager available? Possibly. It’s awesome!

Review: Can of Mythos pale lager 4.7% ABV

Another surprise, never thought I would be loving a Greek beer, but this is a good smooth and refreshingly tasty beer.

Appearance is good, a nice clear pale yellow beer with a nice head developing but it does dissipate quickly. Good lacing though.

No clear smell was found, maybe slightly sweet and a small hint of cooked corn and grassy hops.

Taste was sweet, no bitterness, was fairly smooth to drink, and a teeny bit strong too. Recommended.

A- pours a clear bright golden with a very nice creamy eggshell colored head. poured into a pokal, the foam holds very well and makes some big drippy lace. for a style that i consider to be boring, this one looks as good as i can imagine.

S- faintly lemony, herbal and grassy with a popcorn type malt sweetness. otherwise fresh and not skunked.

T- clean and light with a mild fruitiness underneath the grassy hops and barely toasted malt flavor. nice citrus flavor too that would compliment any food with lemon wedges squeezed on it. score one for the greeks. finishes clean with lingering citrus and some tart malt flavor. with a hint of lamb.

MF- carbonation is very fine and not zesty enough for me. its gives a creamy, almost nitro feel, but with the light body, i think this one could use some more vigor. nice dryness however.

D- overall i'm pretty impressed with mythos. i kind of expected it to suck and i don't really know why. one side of my family is greek so my relatives brought me a couple bottles from the greek food festival in pittsburgh. maybe that is the reason these green bottles are so fresh and not skunked. they haven't been sitting on a store shelf, they were ordered in bulk and used over the course of a weekend. that garnishes this greek beer with a nice squeeze of awesome
when had fresh, even in america. if i had a case, i'd squeeze some lemon on it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

This beer poured a solid, light gold color with no head at all.

Smells of a honey, bread dough and peach sweetness with hints of dry white flour, bubble gum and an understated skunky dryness.

Tastes of bread dough and white flour with a celery and an organic woody hop dryness. There’s also a slight bit of citrus in the finish.

The mouth feel is light bodied but felt a lot bigger due to the carbonation.

Very nice beer. It could have been a bit cleaner in the finish, but that probably would have detracted from some of the more subtle flavors and smells.

This is a strange one. There is nothing wrong with this brew. Itlooks and smells good. But I think it falllsdown by not doing anything bold.

True to the style, it is boring. Somehow it deserves to lose some points for the lack of distinguishing characteristics. Yet, as I said, it doesn't do anything wrong.

A new bottle i saw at the LCBO. Onto the review, pours out a nice light yellow color, with little laceing. Looks like a nice light lager. Smell was pretty good, nice floral hop aroma and a bit of skunk in the background. This tasted great! Goes down nice and smooth, with little hop bite, its just like velvet. Sometimes i just enjoy a light flavorful lager. Mouthfell is nice and full, perfect carbonation, like velvet. Drinkability is great, i have slammed mythos all night, and it was great. Great cheap beer!

Poured from a green bottle into a weizen glass. Has a gold color with a 1 inch head. Aroma is mild and sweet. Taste is crisp and malty with some sweetness. Feels great in the mouth and goes down very easily. Overall I found this to be an enjoyable beer.

I can only get this when Greekfest comes to town every year, but I do always get it. It definitely has a green bottled beer taste to it.

Light, crisp, sweet, honey, lager. It pours pretty light, without much carbonation. And what little head it does have, dissipates pretty quickly. Fortunately that doesn't effect the flavor, because I do like it. It's nothing special, but overall it's good to drink. Especially on a hot summer day, or at Greekfest.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Clear golden body with a nice looking white head up top. Looks like a textbook lager.

Smell: A skunkiness will not leave my nostrils at all. Its kind of a put off as much as it is interesting. Has a bit of a hoppy smell to it.

Taste: Metallic greens and lemons as well as a bit of dry taste. Great for the style.

Mouthfeel: Extremely light with a spritzy finish. Goes down better with each gulp.

Drinkability: Easy to down with a solid taste. I would imagine this being a sort of PBR of Greece or something in the sense of each countries lager standards.

I had two bottles of this at the ame time, both slightly different in labels and one saying 5% and the other 4.7% but otherwise calling the beer the same thing. Based on what I've found looking around, I think that these are just different bottlings of the same beer, one old and one newer and perhaps slightly changed. The newer-looking one (4.7%) certainly tasted and looked not only better but fresher and newer.

The 4.7% was gold with a medium white head slowly shrinking to a ring. The 5% bottle was gold with a much smaller, fizzy-airy white head steadily, more quickly, shrinking to a ring.

In aroma the 4.7% smellwed rather German overall but like a lesser, more mass-produced German beer, yet still decent enough: sulphur, herbs mostly. The other smelled strongly of grain with faint hints of apple and herb, overall more of a US macro style.

In tastem the 4.7% was quite German but again a thinner more mass-produced Germanstyle, mostly bready with herbal hops. The character was light and a bit thin but the herbal bitterness lingered. The other was very, very light in flavur msotly grain with hints of grass in the aftertaste. Dryish, the bitterness was faint and only in the finish, vanishing immediately and the overall character was very thin.

My scores are based solely on the 4.7% bottle but I descrbied both for reference.
