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.

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2010
Clear golden colored brew with a good head. Aroma has flowery hops and malts. Flavor has some sweetness, some maltyness, a bit flowery hops, honey and grain. Overall pretty drinkable, best Greek beer yet.

davidm (2069) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle 330ml from King&Godfree. Pretty flavoursome for a pale lager. Aromas of honey, caramel, and smoke. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a frothy head.

WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2008
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.

floydian1 (1355) - FNQ, Australia, - JUL 15, 2010
Bottle at Stalactites restaurant in Melbourne. Clear golden body with an average sized white head of good duration. Aroma and taste is sweet honey malts balanced by a light grassy and citrussy hop bitterness. Easy drinking with a light-medium body and slick mouthfeel. OK.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 One of the seven beers that Craft produces (Craft is a fine Brewery/restaurant, there are three in Athens). This is the worst one (but way above average in comparison to other greek lagers), a typical lager with a slight bitter aftertaste.

humlelala (1307) - DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
(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."

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2012
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.
