3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle: BBD 20 Feb 2013, slightly out of date when opened on 9 May 2013 on my holiday studio terrace in bright, hot sunshine (Ornos, Mykonos Island).
Mini-haze to my otherwise standard looking pilsner/lager, yellow more than golden with the usual fading white head most in this style seem to have.
The beer was spritzy, lemony, crisp and finished with a dry bitterness, not bad at all, pity the brewery has now closed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle, 1 month old. Crete. Aroma of honey and grapefruit. Beautiful thin foam, and golden color. Most bitter pilsner I have had in years. Slightly salty. Perfect medium body for pilsener, thin texture and lively carbonation. Better to be enjoyed on its own. Taste is amazingly multicolored for pilsener. Perfect example of this beer type for me. Grab it as fresh as you can.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a golden body, with a low white head that diminishes very quickly, leaving only a fair lace. Faint malty aroma. Mostly malty taste, light bitter, with a medium bitter finish. Pretty watery, though. Thin body, medium carbonation, watery texture. Didn’t really expected to say that, but I think I prefer their lager that the pilsner. Below average pilsener.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
50cl Bottle at a taverna in Azolimnos, Syros, Greece. Clear pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of light sweet lemon, light malty, bright and hoppy, light floral. Flavour is very crisp, zesty, lemon, grassy hops, light pale malts and crackers, really nice crisp bitter finish. Light bodied. Excellent on a hot day. Great underrated pils imo.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2012 In bottle; aroma of heavy hops. Poured a light golden color. Low in bidy, quite hoppy and dry finish ... not a big fan of pilsners in general. This one was OK.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske på restaurant Meteoron, Platanias (Kreta): Ikke mye skum. Litt krydder i aromaen, og smaken er forfriskende med passe bitterhet. En god øl, særlig en varm septemberkveld med en fantastisk utsikt over sjøen og Platanias sentrum.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(on tap @ On the Rocks, Plakias) Pours a clear, golden with rich, white head, decent retention and good lace. Aroma is straw and grain with hints of what resembles Saaz-hops and a few metallic notes. Oily texture, light body, medium carbonation and a lingering, bitter finish. Flavour has grassy, biscuity and a few tart notes. Overall decently balanced and well drinkable from the proper, non-frosted glassware :-)
