Bottle at the.Alcanea hotel, Crete. Bright clear gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp and dry. Clean pale malts. Very mild citrus that had a vague sour tinge. Trace of floralness. Dry crisp finish with the sourish citrus lingering on. Not bad.

no matter tap or can. great quality if you like lager. it doesn’t look like " a fancy beer", it doesn’t smell like "a complex beer" but simply, it’s a very reel beer!

CanCrusher (655) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - APR 9, 2014
Can 0,33L. Clear, pale golden colour with small, frothy, white head. Aroma is somehow weird - vegetable, cooked corn, pepper, some grassy hops. Taste starts light bitter with some juniper and ends moderate bitter with slightly metallic finish. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation and metallic finish. Didn’t expected much, but gets more than I hope...

0,5l can from Carrefour, Athens. From the blander end of ordinary lagers. Pale golden, grassy malts. Drinkable nevertheless.

AshtonMcCobb (2716) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle from Oddbins. Appearance - golden with gentle bubbles and a decent fluffy head. Nose - honey, lemon and malt. Taste - more honey and lemon with pale malt background. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy delicate texture and a nice balanced finish. Overall - a decent example of a Helles style beer.
