2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml out of date bottle: bought and drank while on holiday (Mykonos), 11 May 2013.
Sorry to see these guys have stopped brewing: I have had a few of their beers and each has been fine, a sad loss to the Greek beer scene.
This beer was pale gold and had all the usual lager/pilsner atributes: clear, bright and clean looking with a swiftly fading white head. Almost odourless apart from hints of grain in the nose.
Refreshing and fairly sweet in the taste but not a huge flavouring of anything worthy of note. Pleasant to drink after laying around in the sun all day, but not a serious beer hunters target.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle. Crete. Citrus aroma, no carbonation for pale lager. Cereal malt, a bit licorice/ ouzo taste. Pale, clear with no head. Lightly bitter. Not my kind of brew. Not so dull for pale lager, drinkable, but I would not want to have more than 1 in a row.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a yellow body, with a low white head that diminishes quickly, but leaves a good lace. Mostly artificial-like malts, some skunk, tolerable. Light bitter taste. Slightly alcoholic aftertaste, interesting for a lager. Almost medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation, watery texture. Decent pale lager, expected worse than that.

50cl Bottle on Syros, Greece. Clear golden colour, white head. Just a very bland lager, light sweet, with a hint of lemon. There are better macro(!) options in Greece. Light-bodied.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
In bottle from carrefour in Rhodes; low to medium body, not very hoppy at all. At first I was a little disappointed but overall it was an easy drinking beer on a nice hot beach day. As well, given the fact it was under $1E, not a bad value

2.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket hjemme 20 Aug 12. Lys gylden. Bra skum som stabiliserer seg lavt. Søt fruktig aroma. Smaken er malt med innslag av frukt. Litt i søteste laget - men bra.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
(50 cl bottle from Carrefour Chania; produced on June 15th 2012) Pours a clear, richly carbonated starw golden with little white head that dissipitates quickly and leaves no lace. Aroma is initially hoppy in an Urquell sort of way. It howecer quickly gives way to something that is a little bit more malty/bready with notes of grass and metal. Watery texture, light body and a lingering, dry finish. Taste is pilsner. Unremarkable and decently drinkable. Girlfriend says: "It’s quite watery."
