2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
One of the better common World beers. The head was no doubt a result of forming agents. Aroma is what grain. Flavor is some malt and wet grain, carbonic Tang, sweet with a little bitter. Not much sign of hops. Body is ok. Guess it would do in a... Fix. Sorry couldn’t resist.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
2014 Greek Beer journal notes - skuked to crap. Atrocious grainy and skunk aroma with alight bitterness, crisp note. Not refreshing beyond being a liquid.

Bottle. Boring pale pour, with fizzyness - ugh. Some sugariness. Barely any hops of which to speak... Washing liquid finish. Blech.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very attractive, shimmering, golden amber body holds aloft a thin and compact white crown for the length. Salty and quite grainy, sweet and cereal-like is the nose with a hint of chaff, palest honey and dried mown grass. Light on for flavour though I did try it super chilled from the bottlo’. Fills out as it warms. Sweet, toasted and biscuity malt upfront and across the mid-palate. Quite gritty and dry in back with a crisp, lightly grassy hop finish. Peppery, almost minty linger. Light bodied with racy, sprightly carbonation. Slightly soapy feel but nothing unclean here. Very easy drinking. Balanced between sweet malt and dry grain and hop. Can’t say too many negatives with this. Quite good to ’go against the grain!’ (33cL, BB 24/11/16, Cellarbrations Lynwood)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Classic Greek pale lager, in existence from 1864 till the eighties and then resurrected in 2000. Cobweb-lacing, snow white, medium sized head, clear ’old gold’ colour. Aroma shows signs of oxidation (older bottle!), next to impressions of dry breakfast cereals, soggy chicken grain, dried grass, some vague iron, bread crust. Typical pale lager grain sweetish flavor, cereally, thin body with fizzy carbonation, light grassy hop bitterish touch in the finish but otherwise remaining thin and grainy. Fairly neutral overall, a tad too old, very stereotypical.
