A very weak lager from Greece. Nothing exciting here.

New review, because I was drunk last time.

Extra marks for the bottle cap. Perfect if you are heading for the field, school or a war zone. But it looks totally average inside a glass.

Mega unified hops and malt. Subtle sweet hops. I love it. Hops are beautiful, so is the malt.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a completely clear, medium golden color with a moderate to strong white and spotted head. SRM of 7. (3.75)

Aroma: The skunk comes out of the glass on this one. Initial aromas of skunk and light struck beer. Then some underlying pale and cracker malts. Some cereal malts with light flowery notes.

Flavor: Mild flavors of pale malts, cereal malts, white bread malts. Some suds and yeast. A smooth and wet cereal malt finish. (3.75)

Feel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. a balanced finish. (4.00)

Overall: For drinking this one 6 months past the expiration date, it wasn't the worst I've had. Sure it was light-struck and skunky. Past that it had nice cereal malts. Decent yeast profile and a full mouthfeel and finish. Given the age, I'd give this a decent rating, but of course would like to find it more fresh. (Rating: 3.77)

A very light lager in the veins of many "lowtier lagers" like Heineken and Carlsberg. A bit lighter even. Not very strange maybe, since the brand is owned by Carlsberg. Quite water-like mouthfeel, balanced sweetness, not too sweet. None-screw easy open cap. Flask-design is clean and nice.

Not much more than that. Doesn't taste a lot. Very mediocre, but works good a really hot day or when you just want something easy to drink like all of these "mowing the lawn"-beers. I could see myself grabbing one of these in the summer.

"Nothing special, but not terrible", should be the tagline for this beer.

Had this last night at a Greek restaurant. Great lager beer. Way better than the macroswills. I recommend it if you can find it.

From the bottle, it pours a clear yellow golden color with a small white head that slowly reduces and leaves some lacing. Grainy scent in the nose. In the mouth, it is grain and some herbal bitterness. Drink it cold on a hot day!

I come from Czech Repubic one of the biggest beer countries.
This beer is the BEST I ever had! I think people here rating bad are just jelous as they dont want another country to have such a beer.
After tasted more than 120 Czech beers and more than 200 foreign beers I must say that this beer is the BEST I ever had.
Frozencold with or after food.. G-O-A-T !!!

Yes I had this while on holiday in Greece... and found it quite acceptable. Probably the best(??) Greek industrial pale lager. However, I don’t feel any need to have it imported to Norway.....

Rerate: It is now actually imported to Norway, in a watered-down 4.7% ABV version, in order to be sold in our grocery stores. 330 ml green bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Crystal clear pale golden colour, decent head. Fresh and grassy moderate aroma. The flavour is fairly "clean" with a moderate malty sweetness and fairly decent hops in the finish. OK on a hot summer’s day.

Clear gold appearance with a small, off white head and a tiny amount of lacing. Mildly sweet, corny aroma offset by toasted grain. Metallic flavors overlap the low keyed hops. Vegetal aftertaste. Light bodied mouthfeel; thin, watery palate. Cardboard-like finish.

i love trying international lagers from strange locations or places that are not commonly known for their beer, this was a cool find, and its a fine brew, checks all the boxes for the style without really being unique or different in any way, but its not cheap to me at all, nothing metallic, sweet, adjuncty, or watered down, its seems all malt to me, slightly fuller feeling, and the finish would be very clean if it wasnt for the skunky green bottle character that unfortunately plagues it. i always try to not judge a beer like this too harshly for something like that, hard to police quality worlds away. this has a great mouthfeel with its round body and intense carbonation, and its boldly flavored enough to stand up to a meaty garlicky gyro, probably its ideal food context, seems born for that. a lesser lager would easily be overwhelmed here. id love to try it fresher sometime, but i do think it translates pretty well even still, kind of reminds me of green bottle moosehead growing up, i will always have a soft spot for beers like this. cool to have something international and different here in boise, i enjoyed this with my food at meraki downtown, a place i definitely recommend!

Found this one at a popular chain, Niko Nikos, in Houston. Six of them in an ice bucket for $15 was too good to pass up. No, I didn't finish off all six at the restaurant. Since the COVID plague, Texas has allowed us to buy drinks at restaurants and take them home. The beer? Oh, right.....it's a classic, fairly light, Euro-style lager reminding me of Pilsner Urquell, Tyskie, or Stiegl. It's very refreshing with that hoppy bitter finish. We drink it colder than they do, I'm sure. It is just fine right out of an ice bucket, and I can see it standing up to a Southeast Texas summer. I would definitely buy it again.

Delicious light beer. Similar to Heineken. Smooth. Crisp. Refreshing. Great for yard work on a hot day. Or for sitting around the yard admiring whatever catches your attention.

In the category of European lager beers there are many low quality products. Drinks with the name of beer with the sole purpose of quenching thirst. Myths? Just a beer simulation
