Poured this Euro Pale Lager from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. 2nd attempt at a Greek Lager...Poured a cloudy golden yellowish color, produced a small white head, poor retention and left minimal lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted of grain and the classic Euro Skunk. Light in body, this euro pale lager had a foundation of malted grain, then dominated by the "Skunk". There is some citric hop flavor at the finish- which is also dry. Overall, its the better of the two Greek beers that i tried but not something I would ever order again. The Greeks should stick to the Pitas and the Gyros. Prost!

I can only get this when Greekfest comes to town every year, but I do always get it. It definitely has a green bottled beer taste to it.

Light, crisp, sweet, honey, lager. It pours pretty light, without much carbonation. And what little head it does have, dissipates pretty quickly. Fortunately that doesn't effect the flavor, because I do like it. It's nothing special, but overall it's good to drink. Especially on a hot summer day, or at Greekfest.

A - Pours with a small head of white foam on top of a clear, straw colored body.  The foam settles quickly and leaves light lace on the glass.

S - Light honey and grainy malt.  Some surprisingly strong herbal hops.

T - grainy malt with a light honey flavor and some spicy hops.  A sighted malty finish and lingering grainy cereal notes.

M - medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.

D - not bad, it is a pretty standard euro lager with a watered down pilsner flavor.  Better than bud, but not great.

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.
