"Fix Hellas." "Premium Lager Beer." "36 gold medals and prizes." (All of which I'm assuming were bought and paid for, and/or are illegitimate). 330ml aluminum can with blue/white label purchased at a supermarket in Kardamena, Greece, and served into a generic stangenglas in my hotel room. Reviewd live. Expectations are average. 5% ABV.

No bubble show forms as it's poured.

HEAD: Two fingers wide. White in colour. Decent thickness. Okay creaminess. No lacing sticks to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Retention is below average - about 1 minute.

BODY: Clear translucent pale copper of average vibrance. No yeast particulate or hop sediment is visible.

Overall, it looks standard for the style. Not unique or special in any way. I'm generally optimistic.

AROMA: Helles malts and accompanying sweetness. Generic barley. Some residual sugars. It's a bit too far on the sweet side in my opinion, and needs some balancing hop bitterness.

No yeast character, alcohol, or off-notes are detectable.

It's an unremarkable aroma of average strength, and suggests a pretty boring and bland lager.

TASTE/TEXTURE: Generic malty sweetness, bland helles malts, generic barley, and some sticky syrupy residual sugars. It's smooth and wet, but overall presence on the palate is poor; this is unrefreshing and not particularly clean. Additionally, it's overcarbonated and is too thick on the palate. It also has an unbecoming buttery feel.

One problem is that the sticky syrupy feel coupled with the overly sugary taste suggests cheap malt extract, redolent almost of homebrew. Boy, this needs balancing hop bitterness.

I like it in a general sense, but it's unbalanced. The build is simple, boring, and insipid, lacking any complexity/intricacy, nuance, or subtleties of note. It's not well-layered and has mediocre amplitude as well as below average depth of flavour. At least the duration and intensity of flavour are average for the style.
Nothing here stands out in any way. Why brew this?

No yeasty or off-notes come through, and it's not boozy to its credit. Additionally, it's not astringent, harsh, gushed, oily, or hot. This could definitely be far worse.

OVERALL: Downable swill. It'll get you drunk. It's a basic lager meant to fill a specific market category, and lacks any true flavour and/or inspiration. I'll easily finish this can, but I wouldn't get this beer again; there are other cheaper bland lagers in Greece that drink just as well as this does.

Evidence perhaps that when in Greece, one should stick to wine and ouzo.

This beer to me is a bit underrated. Had this at the hotel bar at the Hilton in Athens. The color was a pale golden yellow as you might expect from a Euro lager, as well as a similar mouthfeel. The taste has a fruitiness to it though that I think separates it from the rabble of common Euro lagers. Very refreshing on a warm summer night.
