Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - MAR 5, 2011
Clear golden colour, short-lasting white head. Aroma is weak, a little citric or even floral. Better tasting than the usual lager.

Senka (536) - 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.

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.

darrennelson12 (420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2012
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

jacobwennbom (353) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2008
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.

2.7
   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Argonian (279) - 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.

Despotis (222) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - NOV 23, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 An easy dreaking pale lager.Yellow colour with a white medium head.Light sweet,malts,bitter hops and light sweet.Watery body.

mixos (151) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 9, 2010
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.

tanstil (125) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 1, 2012
0,5l bottle. A clear golden lager with a nice white head. Soft aroma with notes of malt and hops. Slightly sweet taste with fruity notes. Dry finish. A drinkable beer.

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.
