Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

Apparently, Aris is a shortened name, much like Mike is to Michael. Who knew? Anyway, this stuff pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of white foam. The nose comprises light grains (it smells just as vague as I typed it), light seaweed, and hard water. The taste brings in more of the same, with the grain coming across as ever-so-lightly toasted. The body is rather light, with a light moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, this beer likely didn't set out to do much, and that's exactly how much it accomplished. If it doesn't care, neither do I.

Poured from a green 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is slightly skunky, grains, just a touch of sweetness. Taste is crisp, grains, malts, mild yet refreshing. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

Poured this Euro Lager from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. It poured a pale yellow color, excellent clarity. Produced a small white head, poor retention and left little lacing on the glass. The aroma was awful, classic skunky Euro Lager smell. Light in body, thin/watery beer, skunky taste, some grain and a bit of hops, not much else. The Skunk dominates. Ordered this at a Greek restaurant thinking I would try something new. I didnt even know that the Greeks brewed beer..., evidently they don't do it very well. Avoid. Prost!

Fizzy head that dies to a single layer of minute bubbles. No lace at all. Surprisingly cloudy. Golden color (at least it's darker than straw).

Mostly grainy smell, but it doesn't have the usual adjunct weakness of a macro. No hop smell sadly.

Very spritzy but relatively rich for the style. Unbelievably sweet with lots of caramel. Short aftertaste. No hop! Some lingering alcohol.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a billowy head that fades quickly to some lacing.

S: Aroma of malt sweetness, grain and a bit musty.

T: Sweet taste of malt and some grain with a mild bitterness and a slightly sweet finish.

F: Light body, mild crispness, fairly smooth with a bit of a grainy texture.

O: A run of the mill Euro Lager, unoffensive and goes best with food.

I was given this bottle by a Greek friend of mine who said they serve this at the Greek restaurant he frequents. 11.2oz green bottle with a production date of 10/19/11 stamped on the back label.

The beer poured a clear pale gold color and made 1 finger's worth of bubbly white head, but the head dissipated in mere seconds and it left no lacing behind as I drank it.

Slightly skunky and slightly sweet smell.

Mostly tasted of grain (corn) and sweet malt with a touch of hops for balance but with very little bitterness.

Light and crisp with the perfect amount of carbonation for the style.

Nothing to get excited over, but very drinkable.

Beer reiew from mid-December 2010: pours a clear yellow color with a 2 finger snow white cloudy head that faded slowly and left very good lacing sticking to the sides.

Smells of sweet malt, grains, caramel, grass and wheat; very typical Euro lager odor that's nice, crisp and sweet.

Tastes of sweet malt, light grains, caramel, grass, citrus hops, lemon and wheat; typical Euro lager taste as well that's light, crisp and refreshing. Above average and very drinkable, it went well with my Mousakka.

Beer three of World beer Sunday imported from Greece.
Pours a deep golden color with a decent white head that displays minimal retention and lace. Smells of bready malts with a hint of melanoid, smells quite German actually. This initially opened with intense aroma of skunk, but over the couple of minutes as I pulled up the listing those aromas are all but gone. Taste is caramel and burnt sugars, bready malt and little to no hop flavor. Medium body and level of carbonation with a sweet almost sticky mouthfeel. This one wasn't half bad, or maybe it was just that much better than the last one. Sweet and malty almost to a fault and I could have used a few more hops.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours with a nice big head, nice lacing. Color is clear copper/blonde.

S: Sweet hops, malts, grassy

T: Corn, reeds, dandelions. Not my favorite sort of taste in a beer.

M: A little carbonation, very light beer. Thin, uncomplicated.

O: When you're out of Heineken, here's a Greek beer that tastes about the same and is just as cheap. The green bottle surely contributes to that character. It's not my favorite beer, but it's not that bad, if you like that sort of thing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very pale yellow. Decent carbonation, but the foam is above average, and the lacing is definitely good.

Smell: Sweet corn. Sweet hops. Sweet beer.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Sweet, yet drinkable beer. Thin-bodied also. It's a weird taste/feel combo.

Drinkability: Not too thirst-quenching. It's not bad though.

Overall: A decent beer.
