1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Alla spina al ristorante a Lerna, aroma pressoché inesistente di cereali, sapore non spiacevolissimo leggermente superiore alla media delle lager locali. Corpo acquoso fin dall’inizio, peggiorato poi a causa dello scioglimento del ghiaccio (!!!) che è stato messo nel bicchiere. Pessima, ma molto meglio della Mythos.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
(Canned, thanks Tomppa!) Clear golden with some floating particles, and a smallish, but quite tight head with decent lace. A bit cardboardy, sweetish aroma with mild acidity and some corny-toffeeish malt. Hints of alcohol, too. Sweetish, corny-malty and somewhat acidic flavor with at least some hops. Light-bodied, quite carbonated palate. Reminds me a bit of Russian lagers, only as a milder version. Drinkable, but not twice.

12 ounce bottle. I was at Seattle’s Saint Demetrios Greek Festival and decided to drink the native brew. I am not especially fond of lagers, but this was pretty good for what it was. Slightly sweeter than Heineken, with a better overall taste.

On draught at the Red Rose, Lindos, Rhodes, Greece. A passable drink with no inhesrent distinction. Think a slightly tastier Budwesier. Suited to warmer climes perhaps.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sampled on 6/15/07: Pours a transparent fizzy golden with a thin wispy white head. Standard pale lager aroma has a touch of floral noble hops. Body is fairly thin and lightly sweet with a decent bitter balance. Fairly refreshing but not much more than that.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted 2007-08-18. Canned. Clear yellow. White head. I guess you can enjoy this cold, if you’re thursty and don’t have water; No particular off flavours. Well almost no flavours at all. The only positive thing I have left to say about this beer is, that it is in fact - a beer! I give it 8 in overall grade as a thank you for the times it has quenched my thurst in the hot greek weather. Enjoy!

Athens, 07. This one also quite popular in Greece. It is just another forgettable mass-produced tasteless lager.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle - Pours clear gold with a moderate head. The aroma is light corn malts. The flavor is more of the same with some light hops presence that comes through mostly in the finish. It’s thin and a little watery, though I’ve had worse.

At last the elusive Alfa, supplier of half the menu boards in Greece. Green, white and gold tin. Pours quite rockily. White sugar and metal. Bile and copper. Unconvincing chemical bitterness. But much nicer on tap.
