17Beer (109) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Poured from 33 cl bottle into a chilled glass mug. Golden yellow with a dissipating white head. Refreshing and uncomplicated. Light body, average carbonation, abrupt crisp finish. A good refreshing drinkable lager perfect for a hot seaside, vacation cool-down.

Much better than the other widely available lagers in Greece , quite a clean taste, not too sweet or malty.

AdiBeer (1986) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2014
Aroma: caramel, bread and cereal malts. Appearance: clear gold, small frothy white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: malty sweets coming up quickly, bread, grain and caramel again, light bitter throughout. Overall: a Pale Lager, nothing too write stories about, not as light as other kinds in this boring style. Bottle from OddBins, Pimlico.

Trevelling a lot I have taste a lot of different beers. Starting from the Finkbrau till the normal German home-mading beer. This beer is just a example of good, quality beer, the best click of which is stability. itís good at summer, itís nice in spring and itís still good at winter and autumn. Itís not just a best greek beer, but the best work made all over the year.

beer0clock (142) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
pale golden lager that isnít very carbonated, doesnít leave a lot of lacing but can have a good head, nice on a hot day to have a cold beer, predominant barley malt taste, not decided on whether I like this or not, not too much of a bitter after taste like mythos. lefkada, greece in bottles.

Kita (1424) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUL 7, 2014
Can, 0.33l, courtesy of Simon. Clear pale golden color with small frothy white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of cereals, vegetables, hay and cardboard. Taste starts with medium sweet corn, follows by mild grainy sourness and mild bitter finish. Light body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Not so bad as others Greek lagers...
