mkel07 (5226) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2010
330ml bottle. Gold honey straw colour with a dense creamy white foam head. Clear with mild carbonation and a salty aroma of malt and hops, nothing outstanding. Full flavour with a slight metallic aftertaste. Feels good in the mouth. Okay without being great.

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.

gunnar (7980) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours pale straw colored with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malts with some grassy hops. Taste is smooth and soft, light sweet malty with minimal grassy hops at the end. Soft carbonated.

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.

Rune (11341) - 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).

mabel (8640) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2007
[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.

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

bierkoning (12570) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2009
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.
