Senka (810) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2014
From the archives, 2012 October. 33cl bottle, and not the only one. Medium bodied beer. Fitted local Crete cuisine much nicer than retsina or FIX. Worth a try.

33cl Bottle on Syros, Greece, at the cinema. Clear reddish amber colour, off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, lots of caramel. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, light nutty, nice hoppy bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. A bit of a one-trick pony, but nice enough.

darrennelson12 (455) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
In bottle; aroma somewhat sweet yet hoppy. Poured a nice brownish red color. Taste was medium body with a little sweetness and hoppiness combined ... sort of reminded me of Palm. Overall a better beer than I expected

Holmen1 (3127) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2012
På Kreta: så bra å finne noe som smaker litt mer enn standard gresk pils (Fix, Mythos og Alfa) og imprterte industriprodukter! Nydelig rødfarge og fint skum. Behagelig aroma, med karamellantydning. Moderat humlet, men fin smak og balanse. Nice medium sweet flavour, notes of red berries and toffee, moderate hops. Se etter dette neste gang du er i Hellas eller på Kreta!

humlelala (1060) - DENMARK - AUG 21, 2012
(33 cl bottle @ On the Rocks; Produced on June 19th 2012) Pours a clear, dark copper with medium, white head. Decent retention and good lacing. Aroma is syrup/molasses and dark fruits - definitely the brown spectrum of amber ales and a very, very pleasant suprise to have access to this kind of ale in the hot, Cretan weather. Oily texture, soft carbonation, medium body and a surprisingly (slight) bitter finish for the aroma. I guess this is where we are headed into amber territory. The flavour is another pleasant surprise in that it departs somewhat from the syrupy nose and offers something a bit more biscuity and dry although the molasses are still definitely present.

tanstil (125) - Athens, GREECE - JUL 30, 2012
0,33l bottle. A dark red ale. The aroma is soft and floral with notes of caramel. The taste is slightly sweet. The finish is hoppy.

BlackHaddock (4435) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2012
One of four beers on tap from this brewery offered at a habour side bar in Chania, Crete during September 2008. Poured into a vase shapped brewery logo’ed glass. It was a glowing reddy brown colour in the afternoon sunlight, clear and clean looking. A smallish cream head sat on top. The beer was cold (the weather hot), so it was difficult to pick up any huge aromas. I did detect some caramel and possibly some hops too. The caramel I’d found in the aroma came through into the taste, but it wasn’t a sweet tasting beer by any means. Crisp and refreshing with a medium body feel to it. Although it was just what I needed at the time, it wasn’t/isn’t a great beer that I must have again. In fact I didn’t have another one while staying on Crete, so that tells it’s own story.
