One of the worst beers I tried so far.

Tastes and smells like some fainted apple cider. Colour is also similar to apple cider. The best thing in the beer is the head that stayed on for a solid amount of time. Alcoholic scent in a sub 5%ABV beer is hard to explain. No hoppiness, no maltiness, just alcohol, some boozy/fermented fruit taste and sweetness. Not much carbonation and heavy feel. I feel like drinking a strong lager rather than an ordinary euro pale.

I was curious to how bad the beer was - well, luckily, curiosity did not kill the cat. When in Greece I'll stick to other options.

Pale lager...yada yada yada. Nothing different here, but will admit it was better than I expected. Just the right amount of flavor to go with a plate of souvlaki

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.
