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.

Multiple draft samples at the brewpub and various other eateries in Athens. Pours a clear, medium-golden color with a small, foamy white head. Sticky, snake-like lacing marks the glass. The aroma shows sweet, pale malts, cereal grains, floral hops, and a touch of lactic creaminess. The flavor shows lightly toasty pale malts, hints of caramel, and a dash of spiced floral hops. Light-medium bodied and moderately carbonated, this one is easy to drink and quite sessionable. Good balance and surprising substance for the style. One of the best pale lagers I’ve ever had, for sure, but of course that isn’t really saying much.

Athens, 07. Tried these beers as a tasters sample at the brew pub. All beers much better than the beer available in 99% of the bars in Athens, but nothing fantastic. This one was the worst of the bunch, still very bland.

Tap in Athens. A nice refreshing beer that was better than other standard Greek lagers. Perfect for hot summer in Athens.

[319-20070525] Tap @ Craft (Athens). Wheat aroma with some alcohol. Clear, golden yellow orange with a medium-lasting creamy white head. Watery grainy wheat flavour base. Light-medium body. OK blending, a bit of a zip but not much.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 4, 2007
Draught, tasted at the brewpub, a crystal clear honey gold colour with no head. A soft sweet malty aroma, maybe a touch of honey in there. A plain dry lagery palate, grassy and grainy.

Tap. Not bad for a greek beer. Light body without head , light taste but easy to drink it with a meal.

beerakias (10) - Mykinon, GREECE - SEP 26, 2006
A light start with a moderate hoppiness with a moderate acid finish. Frothy white head, good fully lasting lacing and a clear with light to medium body. One of the best lagers produced in Greece

KnutAlbert (6712) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2006
On tap in Syros, Greece. Not the most outstanding beer in their range. A soft Bohemina-style lager with a flowery aroma. Could do with a hoppy twist in the finish.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2006
450ml on tap at Cafe Cafe in Platanias, Crete. Served in a tall original craft glass. Nice golden colour. Smoked aroma. Starts like a smoked beer, but turns out as a hybrid drink. Unusual. Not good, not bad (31.05.2006).
