2.34/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 4 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: 12-ounce green bottle with a simple label poured into a pint glass. Bright golden color clear enough to read the newspaper through. Bubbling up from the base of the glass. Light pillowy bright white foam on top but it dissipated within a minute or two.

Aroma: Very light. Almost indescribable odors.

Taste: Tame. Light grains and accompanying sweetness.

Feel: Soft, thick, and low carbonation.

Overall: Refreshing, to be sure, but not at all complex. This would be a great way for someone who is used to American light lager to experience a Greek beer.

Pairing: It paired decent with the classic Greek moussaka dish but some higher carbonation would have made it even better. The lack of flavor in the beer was certainly felt in comparison to the vibrancy of the entrée.

11.2oz bottle, best by March 2024. Served in a shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Clear pale gold, thin white head with fine sheets of lacing.

Smell: Mostly clean, with a bit of sulfur/skunky note.

Taste: Clean, bready/slightly sweet middle, with some noble hop bite at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Ok thickness, a bit fizzy, but not badly so.

Overall / Drinkability: About what you would expect from a Euro pale lager. No frills, has that skunky note, but is easily drinkable. It did pair well with my pasticio and Greek salad.

Enjoyed at a local Greek restaurant in Ft Myers, FL. Green bottle poured in glass. Very flavorful with just enough carbonation.

Bottle pour into a tulip glass.
Clear pale golden appearance with a modest foamy head that recedes quickly to a surface film and collar. Grain, scallion, celery, pepper, herb, anise notes. Light body, light carbonation, soft lively mouthfeel.

Poured from a 330ml bottle.

Pours Dark yellow with a tiny and fleeting head , smelling of grass with a touch of skunk . The taste is light, grassy and mildly sweet with a slight bitterness. Mouthfeel is okay , neither good nor bad . Overall, average but on a hot day would do to cool you down . Average.

New review, because I was drunk last time. Cool unicorn on the label.

Extra overall marks for the bottle cap. Perfect if you are heading for the field, school or a war zone like me. But it looks totally average inside a glass, great smooth head though.

Aroma is a little unique in terms of the hops...definitely different from a Western European pilsner. Kind of musky and spicy.

Mega unified hops and malt. Subtle sweet hops. I love it. Hops are beautiful, so is the malt. Quite a complex mouth feel with a taste that gradually gets more bitter as it swirls around. Crisp and dry, yet still complex. Definitely tastes best out of the bottle in hot weather. In general for me, Greek food products are the most pure and natural of any country, Cyprus too. The tomatoes and salad in Cyprus are simply amazing.

This tastes much much better straight out of the bottle. Try ; )

If you want a similar beer that is like this but better, try Efes pilsner. Don't try the Efes draft or malt, they are terrible.

Sorry I don't want to restart any wars, but it's just beer.
