.5 L bottle into a pint glass. Kaliviani, Crete, Greece.

A- Very light gold. Whitish head retains poorly.

S- Straw aroma, with a slight citrus hint.

T- Sweet grainy and bitter earthy dry hop.

M- Clean and easy drinking. Light body. Nice crisp finish.

O- Maybe the best mass produced Greek beer so far.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: crystal gold body with maybe a one finger white head that disappeared before my eyes; a spot or dot of lacing here or there.

Aroma: oh hum, another lager bouquet; in the bottle a little Euro must smell or green bottle smell; in the glass – sweet grains and grassy hop

Flavors: grainy, light herbal hop and dry grass, multi grain bread, for a Lager pretty good

Mouthfeel: crisp, refreshing, light flavors, light to moderate body, moderate carbonation,

To the Point: once again a typical Lager; average at best as far as Lagers go; refreshing and pleasing on a hot summer day. Hard to justify the $12.99 a six pack. The price is in play for the okay rating.
