It poured a thin see through golden color with a small head that disappeared to a small thin ring. The smell is what you expected from Euro larger. The taste is ok no off flavor and some sweetness to it. Feel is slightly water with plenty of carbonation. Overall a fair beer just not a lot here.

Poured from green 330ml bottle into glass. Label is stamped for best by date as '06/20/18', this this beer is "old". Pull tab top for opening.
Clear, gold colored body. Slight head upon pouring quickly dissipates, but retains a thin ring fed by bubbles. No lacing.
Lots of skunk in the aroma, along with some sweetness.
Taste continues with the skunk and the sweetness (from malt or hops?). Some biscuit malts are also present.
Thin mouth feel. Okay carbonation.
This is a beer for mass consumption, and will be a good mate with many foods and for many occasions. A beer not to be taken seriously, but rather drunk very cold during hot summer days.

500ml green bottle with pull top. 5.0% ABV.

Generic, European lager (one of the Carlsberg stable of brands) widely available across Greece. Most appealing when drunk ice cold on a blistering hot day, preferably from an iced glass, in a taverna with a sight line of the sea. Pretty much pointless in any other circumstance.

Better on draught. The bottled version develops a soapy aftertaste as it warms.

Pours a foggy straw with a white finger of head. Head has good retention. Aroma is floral, and herbal hops with a stark dank quality to it. Pale and biscuit malts behind. Flavor profile is herbal and floral hops with pleasant pale and biscuit malts that round out this beer very well. The dank quality present in the aroma is minute in the flavor profile. Mouth feel is crisp with a medium-thin consistency making this a very refreshing beer. Overall, a refreshing beer with a good mix of hops and malts. Well executed.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 11.2oz bottle. Pull tab bottle cap.

In cans or bottles just a waist of money.. but as draft beer is it way better! Better smell and better tastes. Worth a try as draft beer

Decanted from an 11.2 oz (330 ml) green bottle into a conical pint glass; best before 10/2018.
A: Pours a crystal clear, dark straw color with a quarter inch, white head, retention to a rim handsome modest lacing.
S: Grassy and grainy aromas with a touch of spice.
T: Cracker and grain flavors most evident with significant bitterness. Somewhat bitter aftertaste.
M: Light bodied with soda like carbonation tapering to champagne-style bubbles.
O: Drinkable but not exceptional like many Euro Pale Lagers. Tried out of curiosity, but probably would not do so again.

Poured from 12oz bottle into Pilsener Glass.

L: Very clear, straw yellow, half finger white head has minimal retention.

S: Smells very grainy, slight herbal hop tone.

T: Sweet grain is held in check by good bitter hops but the herbal tone is just meh. Mediocre.

F: Light, crisp, lingering dry grain.

O: Meh.
