ShivanDragon (2259) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 26, 2015
@Spain, Aldi, 2015. 5%, buikflesje. schenkt helder gouden met prikkelende co2, verder totaal kraagloos. aroma van weer zo’n typische Oost-Europese graan meuk, en zoet. Smaken zijn zwak bitter, zoetige weeïge graan en mout, redelijk zoet, dun en waterig,
Ook hieraan weten de Grieken onze dure Euro’s aan te verspillen...

massingasetta (417) - München, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
This is an average beer even if one rates it as an International Lager, a category, where the herbal strength does not need to overwhelm. This beer is relatively flat taste-wise, with no variation from the onset until the aftertaste. All in all a mediocre beer.

ben4321 (4745) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle at the King George, Athens (5/25/15) & some cans at the Swiisport Lounge, Athens Airport (6/3/15), Rating this off a combination of those sampling notes, which were quite similar.
Clear golden color, decent sized fizzy white head on top. Aroma of malty/grainy notes, some hay, grass, and a little corn. Similar flavor, lightly sweet, not much else beyond that. Okay mouthfeel. Maybe a little thin, but drinkable. This isn’t an amazing beer, but as far as generic lagers go, you could do a lot worse.
