Senka (564) - 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.

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.

MiP (13799) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle, 5%. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is OK malty, has a faint hint of grain. Almost clean, but tastes like a macro lager.

Davros (2029) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2011
Pale golden in colour with a samll quickly fading head. Nose shows bready malt, honey, cereal and faint floral hops. Similar flavours, lots of cardboard and cereal. Carbonation is pretty high, body feels a bit watery.

darrennelson12 (429) - 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

TheGrandMaster (2334) - 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.

FatPhil (9617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 17, 2009
330ml bottle (Stockman, Tallinn) - thanks for the gen, SaintMatty!
Pale amber, brief head. Fairly decent grainy and slightly husky aroma, some of the dryness which foretells paperiness, perhaps. Crisp carbonation, slightly thin palate. Very dull lagery taste, minuscule hint of ginger in one of the sips, but no real malty body, and only ghosts of hops. Pretty clean taste - certainly uncontaminated by beeriness.

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.

Scopey (7435) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2011
Keg at Craft Brewery, Athens. It pours golden yellow, with a thick white head. The nose is soap, manure and farmyard. The taste is white bread, light floral, butter, hay and straw, with a sweet malt finish. Light body, high carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Not great.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 4, 2005
Draft, at Vanilla, Santorini, Greece. </br> Pale yellow larger, fine white head. Thin bitter fizz. A first rank larger with little or no real flavour. This was my first craft beer had out on the islands before visiting the bar in Athens. It’s probably the worst of the selection of beers and not indicative of the rest of the portfolio. Thin as hell.
