Bottle@Home. Grainy aroma. Pale yellow, white head, fair lace. Grainy, light bitter, medium body. Drinkable but not very good.

Keir (176) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Can. Clear yellow with nice head. Nose of corn, grass, sweetness. Tastes like sour corn sugars. Very bad. This might very well be the worst light lager I’ve had.

Holmen2 (1300) - NORWAY - JAN 19, 2015
From bottle 19.01.15. Pale, clear golden. Diminishing white head. Weak aroma with a hibt of grass. No off-taste. Moderate bitterness. Good drinkability, but rather bland.

great beer for a hot day, soft yet tasty. the aroma is not strongh with a touch of fresh grassy notes, appearance is pale and clear not foamy, tried once in Athens, then a couple months later found it in a little Greek restaurant in Chile, ended up buying 2 cases of it... ery good beer to enjoy in a summer afternoon or the beach.

0,3l Flasche. Helles Bier, kaum Schaum. Ich konnte kaum etwas riechen. Schmeckt zu labrig - wässrig!

eduardovl (987) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 24, 2014
330ml drank directly from the can. Enjoyed at promenade in the center of Mykonos. Very crispy and malty in the nose and mouth. Light hops bitterness. Grassy hops. Standard Euro Lager. [BA Review @ 6/2/2014]

Very little head which quickly disappeared. Pleasant nose but disappointing first taste, second was a bit better. Not particularly good.

cmc619 (445) - California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Continuing the Santorini beer tasting experience. From the can. Pretty rough. Usually I’m pretty easy on Euro lagers and appreciate what they are - not so with this one. Not for me.

Jamedra (579) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 5, 2014
Plechovka 330 ml. Aroma je vcelku výrazné, jemné, sladové. Pěna je jasně bílá, hrubší konzistence, nízká a rychle mizící. Barva samotného piva je zlatá. Chuť je sladová s jemným nádechem kvasnic v pozadí, finiš je slabě hořký a nedržící. V ústech pivo působí tence, je rychle ustupující, má silný říz a je vcelku dobře pitelné. Jedná se o průměrný světlý ležák, ve srovnaní s komerčně dostupnými ležáky zemí s ne tak rozvinutou pivní kulturou.

Bottle@work by Matus. Pours golden color, white small head. Aroma is malty, bit corny and fruity. taste is medium sweet, malty with a bit hoppy finish.
