Purchased as a single off the shelf, best by 05/2016. Poured from 11.2-ounce bottle into a pokal. Very nice looking pour, translucent orange with a thick white head that leaves lots of lacing. Nicely balanced, right on for the style. No trace of skunkiness despite the green bottle. Nothing mind-blowing here, but a very solid offering nonetheless.

Mythos was a cheap purchase around these parts. A lager, nothing special but I'll drink it over Heineken anyday... Worth a try, for some Greek vacation

Unimpressive, but to be fair, I didn't expect much. Appearance: pale yellow, very minimal head and carbonation - like apple juice that's been slightly shaken. Smell was mild, somewhere between cider and your average macro. Taste, similarly mild, nothing offensive, but nothing standout either. A little watery. Mouthfeel was thin, watery. Again, nothing offensive, but nothing exemplary. Had this alongside some roast lamb, and the beer served its purpose of cutting the fatty richness of the meat, but did little else.

Not bad, not good. I wouldn't drink it on its own, but it did its job.

A bit like cider. Quite long aftertaste but short foretaste. Basic food beer, but not taste enought for stand alone beer.

Vähän kuin siideriä. Laimeasti humaloitu. Pitkähkö jälkimaku, mutta vähäinen etumaku. Ruokaoluena hyvä perusolut, mutta makua ei pelkästään nautittaessa.

One of the worst beers I tried so far.

Tastes and smells like some fainted apple cider. Colour is also similar to apple cider. The best thing in the beer is the head that stayed on for a solid amount of time. Alcoholic scent in a sub 5%ABV beer is hard to explain. No hoppiness, no maltiness, just alcohol, some boozy/fermented fruit taste and sweetness. Not much carbonation and heavy feel. I feel like drinking a strong lager rather than an ordinary euro pale.

I was curious to how bad the beer was - well, luckily, curiosity did not kill the cat. When in Greece I'll stick to other options.
