I just came back from Greece and this Mythos beer was amazing. I had one every day.

Mythos has a medium, slightly off-white head, and a clear, golden appearance, with some bubble streams and a very minimal amount of lacing left behind. The aroma is of rich, sweet, and full barley malt and a slight hop zing. Flavor is of sweet, sugary malt, light biscuit, grassy, and mellow hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Mythos finishes semi-dry, crisp, refreshing, and supremely drinkable. Could this be the best lager available? Possibly. It’s awesome!

Review: Can of Mythos pale lager 4.7% ABV

Another surprise, never thought I would be loving a Greek beer, but this is a good smooth and refreshingly tasty beer.

Appearance is good, a nice clear pale yellow beer with a nice head developing but it does dissipate quickly. Good lacing though.

No clear smell was found, maybe slightly sweet and a small hint of cooked corn and grassy hops.

Taste was sweet, no bitterness, was fairly smooth to drink, and a teeny bit strong too. Recommended.

A- pours a clear bright golden with a very nice creamy eggshell colored head. poured into a pokal, the foam holds very well and makes some big drippy lace. for a style that i consider to be boring, this one looks as good as i can imagine.

S- faintly lemony, herbal and grassy with a popcorn type malt sweetness. otherwise fresh and not skunked.

T- clean and light with a mild fruitiness underneath the grassy hops and barely toasted malt flavor. nice citrus flavor too that would compliment any food with lemon wedges squeezed on it. score one for the greeks. finishes clean with lingering citrus and some tart malt flavor. with a hint of lamb.

MF- carbonation is very fine and not zesty enough for me. its gives a creamy, almost nitro feel, but with the light body, i think this one could use some more vigor. nice dryness however.

D- overall i'm pretty impressed with mythos. i kind of expected it to suck and i don't really know why. one side of my family is greek so my relatives brought me a couple bottles from the greek food festival in pittsburgh. maybe that is the reason these green bottles are so fresh and not skunked. they haven't been sitting on a store shelf, they were ordered in bulk and used over the course of a weekend. that garnishes this greek beer with a nice squeeze of awesome
when had fresh, even in america. if i had a case, i'd squeeze some lemon on it.

This beer poured a solid, light gold color with no head at all.

Smells of a honey, bread dough and peach sweetness with hints of dry white flour, bubble gum and an understated skunky dryness.

Tastes of bread dough and white flour with a celery and an organic woody hop dryness. There’s also a slight bit of citrus in the finish.

The mouth feel is light bodied but felt a lot bigger due to the carbonation.

Very nice beer. It could have been a bit cleaner in the finish, but that probably would have detracted from some of the more subtle flavors and smells.

This is a strange one. There is nothing wrong with this brew. Itlooks and smells good. But I think it falllsdown by not doing anything bold.

True to the style, it is boring. Somehow it deserves to lose some points for the lack of distinguishing characteristics. Yet, as I said, it doesn't do anything wrong.

I HAD BOTTLE:
Im not a fan of American pale OR India pales, so this was a pleasant change. First two sips I didn't like. A bit ashy. But ended up enjoying the way it went down. Not too bitter. Not too heavy. Glad I had bought two! The taste gets better and better.

I am really working to eradicate the bottle backlog here at Chez Woody! This one came to me as part of a recent drop-off/drop-by from/with my local, in-person trader, tone77. I just hope that I enjoy it as much as he did!

From the bottle: "Premium Quality Hellenic Beer".

I Pop!ped the cap in a most loving way as I have always liked the Greeks. My pour was equally gentle as I fantasized about my platter at the upcoming 58th Annual Greek Food Bazaar on 05 & 06 November 2016 here in Lancaster, PA. Yiaprakia, moussaka, pastitsio, galaktoboureko and tsoureki are all on the menu! I watched as two fingers of puffy, foamy, bone-white head arose in memory of Pat "Mr. Haz" Hazatones, my high school Chemistry teacher, before falling to become a memory. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity, the same color as the leaf and filigree on many of the icons inside the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church at 64 Hershey Avenue here in Lancaster, PA. This brought forth The Gelt Gang of Croesus, Midas & Mammon, but for once they were respectful, taking turns and passing the chalice with bowed heads in humble silence. Nose was very grassy with some cattiness, kind of like my HomeEc kitchen in high school. A couple of stoners and a couple of Greeks and not everyone got along famously. Mouthfeel was light, airy, like phyllo dough that will be used for he baklava that I will have for dessert, along with some of the strong black coffee. No alcohol on the premises, though. 8=( The taste was bready, slightly grassy & very tasty. Finish was semi-sweet, a nice, refreshing example of the style. The approved pic makes it appear that it also comes in CANs, so I will have to keep my eye out for one.

Poured from a green bottle into a weizen glass. Has a gold color with a 1 inch head. Aroma is mild and sweet. Taste is crisp and malty with some sweetness. Feels great in the mouth and goes down very easily. Overall I found this to be an enjoyable beer.
