1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Aroma of citrus, bread, mild barley and floral hops. Lightly sweet and pleasantly bitter. Medium body, lively carbonation, long an pleasant finish. You actually can taste all of those components if you try hard enough. Something that I would bring home to offer to other beer lovers.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Crete supermarket.
Golden with a white head leaving lacing.
Hmm, what exactly does it smell like? There is something familiar here I can’t pinpoint.
Taste: sweet, a bit too sweet, honey, Werther’s Originals, vanilla, dried grass, no bitterness.
A bit unusual, I didn’t really like it.
