Bottle. Clear golden pour with a creamy white head that lasts well. Light aroma has notes of sweet malt, honey, grass and a hint of citrus. Flavour is very similar, but with more herbal and hoppy citrus notes. Mouthfeel is fairly light and slick, with moderate carbonation and a mild, bitter finish. Not too bad as far as pale lagers go but doesn’t stand out in any way at all; drinkable and thats about it.

In bottiglia sotto il Partenone; non malaccio, ma troppo cerealicola per essere apprezzata. Unica artigianale greca trovata: stanno messi male

Clear golden colour, short-lasting white head. Aroma is weak, a little citric or even floral. Better tasting than the usual lager.

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.

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

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.

Argonian (280) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 22, 2012
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.

Descent lager beer. Better than some lagers that can be found worldwide, like Amstel or Heineken for instance. After all, it’s a microbrewery, not a mass production company, so you get the difference.

I ve tasted it twice, but i got the same opinion. Nothing special at all. Light watery body, light malty aroma and flavor. Some bitterness in aftertaste.
