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.

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.

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.
