Bottle purchased at the Greek Festival in Rochester, NY.

Didn't pour this out while waiting in the long line for some Greek food, but I could tell it's probably a pretty light straw color, typical of most Euro or adjunct lagers.

Doesn't smell like a whole lot, slightly sweet and perfumy smelling. Tastes like creamed corn, slight grassy hops, and sweet grainy malts. Your typical crisp and slightly sickening cheap lager flavor.

Crisp, smooth mouthfeel, slight bite from hops and carbonation near the end. Well carbonated.

This isn't horrible, but it won't break down any doors. Drinkable and mostly unoffensive.

Pours a light golden amber with a quite nice one finger pure white head with good retention and lacing. Aroam on opening of pure skunk, with light sweet malt and hints of grassy hops underneath. After sitting in the glass a more typical Euro pale / adjunct light sweet malt and grain aroma. Flavor of subdued sweet malt, starting with faint biscuit malt and developing a bit more sweet malt, finishing light with a hint of hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Very lightly flavored, but did not seem watered down, simply lightly malted. The flavors that are present are quite nice, but really does not stand out in any way. A mild, simple pale ale. Good and unobtrusive with a meal. Not my style, but pleasant enough. Green bottle, booo.

.5 L bottle, poured into a pint, at the port of Piraeus, Athens, Greece.

A- Light pale gold, and clear. White head is fairly healthy and sticks around for a little while. Eventually falls to a ring. Decent lacing though.

S- Grain, bit of toast. Hop character has slight skunk twinge, with some earthiness. Very reminiscent of a German lager.

T- Balance of grain, toasty malt, and a dull earthy hop.

M- Clean and crisp. Wet. Slight bitterness but easy to drink. Perfect for a blazing summer in Greece.

O- Average lager. more hop character than an AAL, but mass produced and made for chugging. Just how most of Europe like their beer.

I bought this Greek beer at the Friar Tucks in Savoy, Illinois. It pours fizzy yellow, with two fingers sized white head, and plenty of lacings and carbonation. It has relatively little aroma, a metallic taste, with strong notes of malt and wheat. It has a light body with no edge or bite, malt after taste, and is not filling.

Got this bottle from a co worker who was ranting and raving about this beer...we definitely have different tastes in beer, and this is just a nasty brew. Very generic, watery taste..taste like an over produced beer not ranking much higher than a domestic in my book. Never again.

12 ounce bottle

Typical presentation, light, clear, minor off white head, leaves minimal lace.

No nose

minimal flavor, maybe some corn.

Adjunct lager all the way...what can ya say....washed down a meal at a local Greek diner well, enough but not much going on beyond that
