Nothing extraordinary about this beer. It is your typical lager, not as bitter as one would expect but it does go well with Greek food. I would drink it over an amstel or heineken. The color is a bit darker than your average lager and the flavor is a bit fuller but average overall.

Pours pale straw in color, very transparent, with a healthy white head. Vigorous carbonation can be observed frolicking throughout. Aroma smells of cheap beer and some skunk. Flavor is so mild that it's difficult to discern what's there. There's probably some variety of grain, a little alcohol, and maybe some hops. The tongue experiences the carbonation more than anything. One of the lightest beers I've ever tasted, and that's saying something living in a country that's filled to the brim with light beers. This is a rare case where simply trying a single bottle feels like a complete waste of time, though I'd be lying if I said I didn't consider this might be the case when I bought it. I guess there's a reason Greece isn't known for its beer.

Poured a straw yellow with a small white head.

The smell was very faint, a little skunky with a touch of earthy hops.

The taste was decents,sweet malts with a bit of hops thrown in.

The mouth feel was light and quite well carbonated and crisp.

Overall a decent enough lager, refreshing and thirst quenching. Its a slightly above average euro lager.

A = yellow and clear with really nice 2 finger billow head

S = slightly skunky and just like any other Euro Lager I've had

T = again fairly generic Euro Lager. Crisp and refreshing but very generic.

Mouthfeel - watery and slightly drying on the pallet leaving me thirsty

Overall - If your not in Greece on vacation, there really is no need to buy this beer anywhere else.
