I tried this beer at Quencher's Saloon in Chicago. Don't see too many Greek beers around here and I never saw this one before, so I decided to give it a shot. 330ml green bottle with a best before date of 4/14 on the front label. Served in a pint glass for $5.

The beer poured a crystal clear pale gold color with 2-finger's worth of white head. The retention was good and so was the lacing. Not a bad look.

Weak nose. Just a little whiff of grassy hops and that's about it.

Taste wise it's a bit grainy, a bit grassy, and it has just a touch of bready malt sweetness to it along with mild hops for balance. Bitterness is low, but evident.

Light bodied with medium carbonation.

It's nothing special, but nothing bad about it either. I enjoyed it.

330ml bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear medium gold with a one finger white head. Actually decent lacing and head retention which was surprising.

Very light aroma of skunk, straw, and grass. Really not much to it.

Quck shot of bread and grass on the taste followed by some alcohol and corn. A little nail polish remover and light bitterness. Seltzer like carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Clean finish.

Overall, a pretty bad beer; even by Euro lager standards. Terrible flavor and mouthfeel. Not one I recommend.
