2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Location: Bottle at a Yia Yia Mary’s, 7/24/13, Greek tick #1!!
Aroma: This one has a grainy and malty nose, with a little bit of sweetness to it
Appearance: This one has a clear gold colored pour with basically no head or lace
Flavor: The taste is light, some clean malts, there’s not much here, but it is not bad either
Palate: The body is light, but not overly watery, fizzy carbonation, mild dryness
Of course my first Greek tick is a Heineken beer. Well, it is better than Heineken at least, in fact, it is not half bad for a generic pale lager...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 500 ml at Parga, Greece. Poured into a lager glass. ABV 5%
The same generic golden yellow colour on the body, as with every other greek beer. Two fingers of white head, soapy, with low retention and no lacing on the glass.
Smell of malts and stale bread.
Taste is sweet. Malts all the way and a trace of apples.
Thin body, low carbonation. Quite watery.
Overall an easily forgetable beer. Or maybe you’ll remember how watery it was.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Simple and resfreshing - typical Lager - with a straight forward bitter end. After a while it gets quite comfortable in the tastes and is enjoyable. Of course without any real aromas - but a drinkable one to kill thirst.

Can. Clear light golden colour with low head and medium body. Nose of medium bitter hops. Taste of light bitter hops, straw, green apples and light barley. Easy to drink and very refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Generic pale lager but, as with Caribbean versions, drinking it on a sailboat while watching a picture-perfect sunset seems totally appropriate.
