look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: nice golden body with lively bubbles rising to the top with a finger and a half pour as snow head; it also leaves some lacing behind. Damn good beer.

Aroma: fresh loaf of Wonder White Bread; that’s it folks

Flavors: buttered white bread, sweet broadleaf grass,

Mouthfeel: very simple; fresh, refreshing, crisp, clean; this beer is as clean as a beer can taste; no aftertaste well there is a little grainy feel; carbonation is lively; light body;

To the Point: I didn’t like this beer on the first couple of sips; the more I sipped - the more l liked it; it still is only an okay lager but, on a hot summer day and it is today – it is refreshing if nothing else and looking at those flavors I mean nothing else.

Light golden color with a thin with low retention.
Faint aroma of adjunct lager, though label says that besides maltose there are no other non expected additions.
Hints of floral hops.
Refreshing taste, light on malt but you can feel some grassy hops. Mildly dry aftertaste.
Light to watery body with low carbonation.
Not bad if it is used as a summer thirst quencher. Actually it gets better as it warms up, and it has no off-flavors.

Went to some Mediterranean tapas bar in Baltimore with very little beer selection, so decided to try a Greek beer, something I've never had before.

Light fizzy head fades instantly, crystal clear watery pilsner color.

Nose light unhappy sulfur lager, light skunk as well, light toasty pilsner like, little fruity, faint straw pilsner.

Taste starts with toasty pilsner, light straw and grainy husk, very light sulfur lager but the skunk is not really there until the finish. Light hop grassy and slightly minty. Finish adds slight skunk, light minty grassy hops lingering and touch of sulfur.

Mouth is lighter bod, decent carb.

Overall typical "imported premium-like pilsner", light skunk and sulfur, husk, typical pilsner characters, etc.

Pored into a 16 oz. goblet. Pours a bright golden color with a small, foamy head. Smells of grassy malts, bread. Taste is sweet Munich-type malts with mild, herbal hops. Clean, crisp carbonation with a light body. Nothing special, but very drinkable. A good summer-time lager.

A: The beer is clear light yellow in color and has a slight amount if visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head consisting of large bubbles that quickly died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge.
S: Light to moderate amounts of sweet bready malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of artificial sweetness and notes of underlying bready malts.
M: It feels light-bodied and somewhat watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but the artificial type of sweetness in the taste is a little strange.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a crystal clear pale to medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some light hints of lemon yellow. The beer has a finger tall creamy white head that slowly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of artificially sweet malts and just a touch of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of sweet bready malts with some light hints of grain and corn. There are some very light amounts of earthy hops that fade extremely quickly but impart a light amount of bitterness (which fades quickly).

M: Just slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: This beer is not offensive but definitely not great - there is a somewhat artificial sweetener flavor in there that seems to contribute the overall hints of sweetness to the beer. Light flavor and low alcohol makes this one pretty easy to drink but this one is a little too boring for me.
