0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Dull gold and no head. Smells very swilly, grainy with no hop. Grainy taste is bland, lifeless and fairly unpleasant. Seems like they’re trying to market industrial swill as something wholesome. Not sure how I feel about that, but this is pretty poor beer.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Straw yellow with a quickly dissipating head. Aroma is sourish macromalt with some grassy hops, some apples and the sharpness of rye. Medium carbonation, soft, macromalty taste finished by a light bitterness. Yet another boring macrolager, quite a let-down.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle@Hotel. Grainy aroma. Dark yellow, off-white head, fair lace. Grainy, malty, cereal, bitter, sweetish. Medium body. Different from other Greek lagers but it doesn’t make it much better...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
300ml bottle from Rethymno, Crete, thanks to Frau Eva. Bright golden with a shade of amber. Decent white head. Malt accented beer with bread-like aroma followed by mid-sweet malts with hints of caramel. Subdued hops in the ending. Soft in the mouth. Alright (shared with Eva at home in Tromsø, 13.07.2011).

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(33 cl bottle from Minimarket in Myrties, Kalymnos, Greece) Pours a clear golden with medium, white head. A very faint, malty aroma. Oily on the palate. Thin-bodied, above average carbonation, short and sweet finish. Refreshing taste characterised by malty, grainy flavour with a subdued hop bitterness. Girlfriend says: "Not too fond of this cereal taste."

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Darker golden colour with small light head. Aromas resemble that of a oatmeal stout or porter, but it is a pilsner style pale lager. Maybe thats because of a 5 grain combination. Oatmeal aroma with some hidden caramel and toffe. Taste is moderately sweet with dryish finish. Medium carbonation and medium body. All in all, interesting beer

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Athens Airport. Dark gold beer with puffy head. Faint, corny nose. Taste of malts, grains, a tad sweet. Bitter in the finish. Okay.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Bright coppery gold, insubstantial head. Ewe, horrible bubble gum aroma. Gassy carbonation and fizzy soda water palate. Could rate the palate lower but the aftertaste redeems. Tastes much better than it smells, thank god, is balanced and the malt character comes out alright with a decent grassy hop finish. Whew.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden colour, white head. Classic, weak lager aroma. Flavour is borderline ok, with notes of lemon and honey.
