A finger of head on a clear, golden colored body.
There is a faint aroma of grain. That's all.
The initial moderate bitter taste goes to a lemony sweetness. Not great, nor horrible.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation and light body.
A below average euro pale lager but not the worst.

A good lager is what this is. From the green bottle we get a transparent honey colored bubbly with a head whiter than Santa's beard. The smell is refreshing, yet not over powering leaving the nostrils in a mystery after tracing pieces of hops in the air. I get a long finish with this brew and content with the massage tracing my throat. A lager is a lager, but this one is above the grain. It is a mystery how a country can deal with fiscal responsibility, but it is not a myth that the Greeks can fathom a few feathers of thought toward providing a brew worldwide.

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!

A - Pale and clear yellow-gold topped with a thin but nice looking cap of white foam. Nice lace for the style.

S - Skanky dank skunk butt. Wheew-wheee! I could smell the skunk from arms length when I cracked this one. Still a month to go before the "enjoy by" date on the back label, so no excuses for this.

T - Chewy caramel malt and astringent grassy hops. Complete turn around from the nose. Finishes with a nice flourish of grassy-lemony hops.

M - Light bodied, well carbonated, thirst quenching. Finishes extremely dry.

Smells terrible, tastes pretty good. A drinkable warm weather brew for warm climates.
