2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle (Stockman, Tallinn) - thanks for the gen, SaintMatty!
Pale amber, brief head. Fairly decent grainy and slightly husky aroma, some of the dryness which foretells paperiness, perhaps. Crisp carbonation, slightly thin palate. Very dull lagery taste, minuscule hint of ginger in one of the sips, but no real malty body, and only ghosts of hops. Pretty clean taste - certainly uncontaminated by beeriness.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head and moderate carbonation. Malty and grassy aroma with a hint of hay. Malty and slightly sweet taste with hints of corn. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 500 ml. Nice aroma along with yellow color. The taste is nothing special. Actually this is an easygoing beer but it’s better than most you can find here in greece and it’s a level up for greek beers.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Nightfall, thanks! Blonde. Only a hint of flowers in the hardly noticeable aroma. Malty, sweetish, almost oily flavor, with hints of flowers and citrus. Medium bodied. Just above standard pale lager.

Scored a bottle of this while I was in Rhodes. I guess there is their flagship beer. Hazy blonde, thin head. Mild, malty aroma. Crisp and slightly fruity. Nothing to go nuts over.

Bottle. It pours a clear, pale golden body with a small white head on top. Pleasant malty and fruity nose with some grains and hops. Nice fruityness in the mouth. Pale malt and hops giving resiny flavors and bitterness too. Dry, medium mouthfeel. Nice bitterness in the finish, to balance the sweetness, and it’s also quite fruity. A really nice Mediterranean pale lager, tasteful, quenching and easy to drink. (080829)

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden in color. Very easy on the nose. First impression when drinking is how thin it is. A bit watery, low on both malty hoppy flavours, thin head. No foul tastes but really nothing going for it either. Since I’ve had the Craft Pilsener the day before I was a bit disapointed.

A few of their beers are actually good enough to consider drinking out of Athens, but this is not one of them. A pretty straight forward European lager, but one with some flavor, some body, some hops. Indeed, enough body to actually lace the glass. Sampled draft at the brew pubs in Athens.
