Had poured out of the bottle and into a 22 Oz glass.
This Greek lager is a staple in the Greek islands. Good mouth feel, and easy to enjoy at the beach as it is not very hoppy or bitter.

Crystal golden clear with a fluffy white head. Aromas where awful! At first your nose is hit by a big shovel of off flavour - glue! Trying to ignore and getting the rest aromas one basically gets aromas of grain and cereal and that is about it. Strongly carbonated with a thin watery texture and nearly no body. Clogging sweetness all over the place and flavours of liquid glue. No finish and totally unpleasant!

Pale gold pour (4) with bright white head which disappeared quickly; no cap retention; ok clarity and almost no lace. Smells like sugary puffed corn cereal. Tastes like Sugar Pops! Popped corn cereal. Lite watery mouthfeel. Sweet DMS linger is a bit much...

Can from the World Cup Euro pack... Sweetish standard yellow lager... not terrible, but nothing I can ever imagining buying without it being on Ice and me either on a Greek Isle or an associated cruise ship.

Had this from a van poured in a tall glass whilst on Rhodes island
Look : pours pale clear straw colour, 1 finger head,doesn't last long though, light carbonation
Smell ;sweet malty, light hops, nothing special or different from a euro pils
Taste : malty, little hoppy sweet but with a horrid earthy after taste, a bit like peaty whiskey
Feel; smooth, goes down easy, light Bitter after taste which lingers
Overall not that nice, cheap over manufactured Lager won't be going out of my way to buy this.

The first thing I noticed was that the beer is in a green bottle, not the traditional brown that blocks harming ultra violet rays. It pours clear golden with a white head and some lacing,. The aromas are grass, a bit of leaves and some off aromas. It has sweet taste that highlights the grassy hops and maybe a bit of toffy with earthly elements. It is a bit high in the carbonation with some off flavors that are almost like molasses.

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

Appearance: 1" white head drops quickly, little to no lacing. Clear pale straw color with plenty of carbonation.

Aroma: barley malt sweetness, a bit of grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: light and crisp with a dry finish.

Flavor: sweet bread dough with a nice balance of mild grassy hop flavor.

Overall: not outstanding, but not bad at all.
