Η ΒΙΟΣ είναι η πρώτη μπίρα στον κόσμο που συνδυάζει τα πλούσια γευστικά στοιχεία απο 5 δημητριακά -κριθάρι, σιτάρι, σίκαλη, καλαμπόκι και ρύζι- για να δημιουργήσει μια απολαυστική, μεστή γεύση.

Βιοs 5 is the first beer in the world that combines the rich flavor components of 5 grain- barley, wheat, rye, corn and rice- to create a delicious, full flavor.

Erzengel (7323) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 20, 2015
Pale and smooth beginning. Lots of grain. Grainy-sweetish mainpart, not too deep, a bit unround, not much bitterness.

Koelschtrinker (16252) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 28, 2014
Wässriger, zunehmend getreidiger Beginn und Mittelteil. Abgesehen davon wenig aromatisch, wenig malzig, kein Hopfen. Spritzig, auch zum Ende hin getreidig. Monoton, dennoch gut trinkbar. 8/6/7/8/8/7

Splitenz (359) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
Quite typical warm weather beer. I remember it being quite fizzy, but the head didnt have much staying power. Bit sweet, not much in the way of bitterness and with a dry mouthfeel. I thought it was dull, and I was sad reading that it contains rice and corn (maiz), something I would hope European beer makers would refrain from.

nilsas (3128) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAY 28, 2014
Syrlig duft sammen med humle. Fin gyllen farge. Dekkende hvitt skum som forsvinner raskt. Noe søtlig smak.

ciocanelu (989) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 27, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Clear golden color with minimal head. Almost no aroma, just some faint adjunct smell. Taste is also very faint. Just the specific adjunct lager taste. Mouthfeel is decent. Light body and medium carbonation. Overall a pretty bland adjunct lager, nothing special here.

Kavu (3812) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 6, 2014
0,33l bottle @ Cape Sunio. Pale golden, grassy malts in aroma and flavor. The usual stuff. Drinkable.

TBone (15698) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle from random shop in Athens
Golden clear color, small white head. Sweet grainy-cardboardish aroma. Light-bodied. Malty, a bit sharp citric-sour. Ordinary pale lager.

FatPhil (13042) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 5, 2013
Paleish gold with loose head.
Lager aroma with some sweet malts. (4+)
Tastes boring and pale, but at least it’s not too fizzy.
Not exceptional. Does have a bit of hopping. Maybe a little paper later on.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

Gulbrun farge med hvitt skum som raskt blir borte. En normal lager det ikke er mye å skrive om Relativt mye kullsyre. Tørstedrikke....

This is actually VIOS 5 in Greece, where I had a 330ml bottle. Nice golden colour, little head. Same-same nose, carboard, tho bit of nice damp grass. Flavour predictably grainy, bit nutty, toast. I suppose OK if you go in for toasted grain but no real subtlety or power. Bit of salt at finish? Perhaps too much salty Greek food. Bit different, I suppose.
