I found this is a cafe in Halki, a small village in the centre of Naxos. After a long walk it was a nice surprise, and went down very well. Tastes very much like a American IPA. A brewery I'll be looking out for from now on.

Best before end: 12/31/14.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy orange-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus juice aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice citrus forward hop qualities all around.

Serving type: bottle.

Nelson Sauvin hops and Greece should not mix, but we have here a Greek pale ale brewed with Saaz and Nelson Sauvin hops. Here's a taste of Greece that hopes to be superior to Mythos. On to the beer:

A slow rise of foam rises out of the bottle after the bottle is popped. Poured into a glass, this beer has a hazy pale gold color while on top rests an airy soapy head. Several strings of lace cling to the glass as the beer is consumed. The aroma has an English accent. It smells like toffee, diacetyl, fruity, with a dash of hops.

This is one fruity pale ale. The beer starts off clean with a kiss of Saaz, then it goes into wave after wave of vague fruit. A bit like honeydew. In between, the beer does offer interesting mineral notes and a dash of hop bitterness which lightly hits the palate. Its carbonation is refreshing and body light, allowing Friday's to be an easy drinking ale, perhaps best suited on a Greek isle.

330ml Bottle from Athens, Greece:
Light amber with a cm tall, bubbly white head on top that holds well.

Strong biscuit and malt aroma with some subtle, earthy tones and some caramel but there is also a hoppy and more lively aroma starting around the middle and continuing towards the end. There is some spice, sweetness and a touch of citrus with some light fruits too.

Sweet malts & caramel ones as well to begin, there is also some lighter fruits and a hint of orange and citrus around the middle. There is a fresh, hop filled taste with nice bit of spice and a hint of bitterness towards the end.

Light medium in body with plenty of carbonation and a smooth body but with plenty of fizz and a very lively feel to it. There is a nice balance and the finish is a crisp finish.

Not a bad beer at all, maybe a little light on flavour around the middle or at least the flavours are a little faint but it is a nice drink with a good balance and nice, smooth and crisp mouthfeel.
