A - Clear straw with a big, billowy, brittle head.

S - Nose is grassy, with a hint of metal and skunk. A touch of lemon rounds out the bouquet.

T - Quite clean. Husky grain and light grass and lemon hop. Nothing off.

M - A bit sharp on the carbonation, and light to medium body.

D - Not bad. Pretty standard pale lager. Fairly drinkable but not interesting.

Pours pale gold in colour with a small, quickly fading white head.
Nose shows bready malt, honey, cereal and faint floral hops.
Similar flavours, lots of cardboard and cereal in there. Not great.
Carbonation is pretty high, body feels a bit watery.

"Ingredients: Water, Barley malt, Hops, Yeast"
[Production Date: 2011-02-16, BB Date: 2011-10-18]

Appearance: Straw / yellow color with a thick, rich, white head w/ medium retention.
Smell: Clearly not impressed. Hints of yeast and malt if anything. Perhaps even a bit off-smell.
Taste: Rather subdued, mostly malty. Not much aftertaste (thankfully).
Mouthfeel: Medium body, very low carbonation.
Drinkability: Unpleasantly bland. I had a, slightly, better memory of it from 2-3 years ago. Either my taste has evolved or a bad bottle.

330 ml bottle from Estonian supermarket, I wonder how it got here. Pours golden with small white head that soon fades to patches, patchy lacing. Aroma is mild malt, bits of flowery hops.

Taste is simple sweetish grain, hints of fruit and slight herbal bitterness towards the finish, nothing extraordinary. Mouthfeel is light with prickly carbonation.

Overall, quite ok Pale Lager.

Grabbed this at Chapel Street Cellars in Melbourne for the seemingly bargain price of $3.

Pours a pale golden colour, probably a little too pale I thought. Head retention was poor with little lacing. Smell was pretty uninteresting but inoffensive. Taste was very down the line and not particularly refreshing which if your not going to be complex, at least be refreshing. Overall a very very standard beer, but possibly still worth the $3 to try a craft beer from Greece.
