Had this at a local restaurant in Marathonas in Greece. Place was on the beach and it was the only one it had on tap. The beer looked ok but I was not impressed with the taste, especially the after taste. It was very bitter and not to my liking. Craft makes other beers which I do like, but I would not try this one again.

Pours pale gold with a large, sudsy head.
Nose shows grains, oats, and bready malt.
Similar flavours, a fair bit of grainy malt shows with some spicy nobles hops underneath.
Body feels somewhat watery.
Fits the german pilsner style pretty well really.

so... Greece does have beer.

the first and only microbrewery in the country it seems does a pretty solid job a a few traditional German Lager styles. very pleased to see.

on tap at a small street cafe, served in .33L Craft pils glass alongside kasseri cheeze and spinach pies.

A - bright yellow gold color, perfectly clear with stark white, fluffy, rocky 2 finger head that persists from first to last sip.

S - Grassiness, graininess of malt, some light sulphur. beautiful floral and slightly spicy saaz hops.

T - light and snappy, brisk and bright. actually showed a nice pilsner malt flavor followed by that noble hop flavor I just cant get enough of. arugula-like spice and mossy coolness.

M - med-high carbonation, light, crisp and refreshing as it should be in the heat.

D- an excellent example of a German pilsner, with more floral hop flavor than Czech spiciness, though with a good amount of bitterness. kinda falls in between the 2 styles.

if you find yourself in Greece in summertime, pass by all the signs for Mythos, Alpha and Fix and get this beer.

A:Poured into a 450mL pilsner glass. The beer is a pure gold color. One finger soapy head with low retention, pure white. Lost of carbonation showing through.

S; Slight lemon zest, grassy, somewhat spicy. A touch of malt at the end.

T: Nice hop bite to it, a touch of soap but not much. A nice bitter finish, dry with some citrus and a somewhat spicy character.

F/D: Crisp, very refreshing after a long day of walking.

Overall: A respectable pils and a hell of a step up from the omnipresent Mythos here in Athens. Actual taste rather than merely a thirst quencher.
