Rune (11352) - 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.

zakkbironia (112) - Athens, GREECE - JUN 3, 2009
Bottle 500 ml. Nice aroma along with yellow color. The taste is nothing special. Actually this is an easygoing beer but it’s better than most you can find here in greece and it’s a level up for greek beers.

floydian1 (1362) - 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.

marcot (770) - Campomorone, ITALY - SEP 21, 2011
In bottiglia sotto il Partenone; non malaccio, ma troppo cerealicola per essere apprezzata. Unica artigianale greca trovata: stanno messi male

Borresteijn (6496) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2012
50cl Bottle on Syros, Greece. Clear golden colour, white head. Just a very bland lager, light sweet, with a hint of lemon. There are better macro(!) options in Greece. Light-bodied.

BlackHaddock (6380) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2013
500ml out of date bottle: bought and drank while on holiday (Mykonos), 11 May 2013. Sorry to see these guys have stopped brewing: I have had a few of their beers and each has been fine, a sad loss to the Greek beer scene. This beer was pale gold and had all the usual lager/pilsner atributes: clear, bright and clean looking with a swiftly fading white head. Almost odourless apart from hints of grain in the nose. Refreshing and fairly sweet in the taste but not a huge flavouring of anything worthy of note. Pleasant to drink after laying around in the sun all day, but not a serious beer hunters target.

rouhlas (2803) - GREECE - DEC 30, 2015
From old notes. From 330ml bottle. Clear golden color with white head. Malty aroma, grainy, bready, straw, light grassy. Sweet and light bitter taste. Light thin body with soft carbonation.
