abemorsten (2943) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2011
0,33 l bottle kindly provided by my beerpal Mikal. three fingers thick, foamy head in an off-white color, covering a clear golden body. Herbs, light malts and wood on the nose. Sweet, bitter, with toasted notes of caramel and a hint of boiled vegetables. Light to medium body. A pretty nice pale lager.

Hermod (3526) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2011
33cl bottle at some taverna in Platanias, Crete. Poured clear golden with a thin white head. Fruity malty aroma with some herbal notes. Flavor is sweet malty with some corn and weak metallic notes as well. Smooth palate. Low bitterness. Average beer.

NosirIwont (2008) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear straw yellow with a diminishing white head. No lacing. Weak aroma; sweet, fruity and grainy. Flavour is watery with cereals and a metallic overtone. A bit grainy as it warms. Grassy notes in the background. Bitter cereal finish with a lingering dryness. Slightly oily palate. 26.08.11.

DruncanVeasey (7322) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2011
Bottle on balcony. Some initial hints of fruitiness on the snout giving way to the usual cocktail of beachmat, cardboard and glue as the head subsides- which is quickly. Rotting fruit taste, maybe banana, smothered with envelope adhesive, cracker crumbs. Bright gold. Poor.

greenclansman (885) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - AUG 20, 2011
No taste at all.... The color and the aromas kinda saves the case, but still are not enough to consider this thing as a beer.

mixos (154) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - AUG 7, 2011
You need to drink 5 bottles of Bios5 to feel that you drink beer. No aroma, no taste at all! Boring, watery beer for someone that walks in the desert under 50 Celsium degrees!

Oakes (12854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2011
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.

gunnar (5774) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 1, 2011
0,33 l bottle. Pours light straw coloured with a thin white head. Aroma of grainy malts. Taste is sweet light fruity, with a tad of bitterness at the end.

ElDesmadre (1776) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUL 28, 2011
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.

meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2011
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...
