Honestly, was not crazy about this beer at all, it reminding me too much of heineken.

I tried this at Athenas in Chicago. It poured a clear golden with fizzy white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had hints of grain. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it was decent.

Hate the green bottle, don't get the pry off cap lever? Aroma reeks of being lightstruck, flavor actually isn't as terrible as I expected, but just another skunky green bottle offering

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a very thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves very little lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains pungent malts, lager yeast and a very touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of lager yeast, grain and a thin malt character. Then some mild malt sweetness comes in. The hops presence is very mild there is not much balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp but not very smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Not very flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, typical representation of style, this is not a very good beer.

Checking off Greece. From a bottle marked best before 8/2017. Pale amber color and a finger of white head. Skunky smell. Light feel. Sweet grainy taste. Too sweet, really, more like a breakfast cereal than a beer.

From the green bottle date 09/2016. Sampled on February 8, 2017.

The color of the beer is about right for the style with a copper-amber-yellow tone and a fizzy white head.

Green bottle skunkiness kicks in more than some I have tried. But once I get beyond that I get white bread, corn oil, and a grassy hop character. Still the skunk character is just too much.

Light body.

The taste has a bready and mildly sweet character with a minor bitter ending.
