330 ml can poured into a mug. Kaliviani, Crete, Greece.

A- Clear and gold. Light however, nearing yellow. White head retains at a small pad.

S- Dull toast. A little metallic aroma. Hops are earthy, but there is this slight fruity layer to it. Almost has a Belgian yeast aroma, but not quite.

T- Mild malt, but fairly forward in the beer. Hops not so detectable, a little earthy.

M- Clean and wet. Slight bitterness lingers.

O- The aroma is different than most. I think this is a better choice than the more popular Mythos. (529 characters)

From the country where the founts of Western thought first flowed, Greece is the tap source of another great treasue; Fix Hellas Lager. This Hellenic brew is bilt off of its country deep meanifulness that is traced back to the days of antiquity and could be seen as a necessary addition to any Republic. Pours a crystal clear straw golden haziness with a white frothing head leaving a full trickled lace within each sip of this well traveled beer. My friend brought me back this sample of beer from a trip to Greece and I am thankful to be touched by it's grace. The aroma is characteristic of many European lagers with the slight skunk cabbage hops with a sharp full sweetness to the front. A great tasting crisp flavor that so good in fact if I where a Greek citizen I would have to get my Fix everyday. Great overall lemongrass sweetness that goes down easily with a slight grainy bitter finish, very nice hot weather beer. Definitely on my list of exotic beers light in body and fully carbonated to provide the crisp cooling down sensation in every sip of this Grecian creation. I would definitely partake in this beer while visiting the island without a doubt, ranks higher than any American mass produced beer without a doubt in my book. (1,243 characters)

Fix Helles (GR)
330ml can purchased and consumed with dinner in Athens, GR.

Clear amber body has low carbonation but a relatively dark color for style.

Aroma: about equal levels of malts and hops. Sweet.
Flavor: tiny bit less malts than hops.

O: slightly better than Heineken; substantially better than Tiger (Singapore). (329 characters)

Asked a roommate to bring me back a Greek beer from her vacation and here I am.

Not bad, shows sign of a Munich helles and differences from a Euro pale or American macro. The aroma isn't anything special, it's just cheap and sweet. That flavor however, does have some grassy hops in the background of the light and bland malt body. Not a bad beer for vacation I guess. (371 characters)

33cl Can purchased in Crete with the sole purpose of reviewing it. The third beer in my 'Drinking lager from around the World evening'.

Poured into a Duvel glass.

Very, very pale, a golden straw colour with a fine white foaming head at first. It just looks week, it's too pale.

Weird smell, cooking apples and hay?

Who ever decided to list this as a Munich Helles Lager must have choosen that style for the colour, cos it tastes now't like anything I've had in Munich (O'fest 7 times and other trips too).

Dry nothingness in the taste, a true lawnmower, feet up in the sun throwing beer.

Watery, soul less and boring. There are some decent lagers brewed along side the Mediteranean Sea, but this ain't one of them. (720 characters)

Euro classic lager nose but plenty of cereals. The taste is fairly neutral, with a touch of spice that adds non-negligible a few bodies in a slightly lower drink without making it extraordinary. Finish low enough, just the presence of a little wheat and most importantly, easy to drink quite interesting. (304 characters)

I worked in a lab and it tastes and smells of something, not sure what but I think it was a phenolic compound. Bland and sticks to the palate. Strangely not so refreshing for a Greek beer. I prefer the more refreshing Mythos or Alpha beers which can be quite good on draught. (275 characters)
