UPDATED: JUN 10, 2011 After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear golden color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a malty touch . This beer smells to malty.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2007
[316-20070514] Tap @ Geros tou Moria (Athens). Light plastic, light wet dog, bittersweet aroma with hints of apple. Clear, light yellow body with lots of side bubbles and a quick bubbly white head. Funny initial plastic flavour goes away, yeasty, sweet aftertaste, hints of appley fruit. Light body. Quite pleasant on a rooftop patio underneath the Acropolis, but I wouldn’t take it home with me.

Can @ Hotel

Another generic lager from Greece that absolutely flies under the radar of good drinking. Not to say this is a bad beer per se. It’s perfectly enjoyable and doesn’t have anything wrong with it. It just doesn’t have anything special about it either. Straw colour, white head, aroma of citrus and grains, goes down easy. Better than nothing!

alox (2) - GREECE - JAN 6, 2013 does not count
Good beer. Simple aroma with a good taste. Perfect in a hot Greek day and with fried fishes. Funny thing... Sometime the cans taste a bit different one from the other. Bottle is good. Draght is the best of all

Lys brun/gul farge med tynt hvitt skum som forsvinner raskt. En helt ordinær lager. aroma: noe malt... medium med kullsyre. Ellers ikke noe å berette om denne.

Armadill0 (255) - FINLAND - JUN 4, 2014
Can. Yellow, clear with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has grain, some fruit and malt. Very subtle. Taste has grain, bread, citrus. Some fruit and corn. Pretty well balanced, mouthfeel is ok yet bordering on watery. A bit bitter on the aftertaste. A decent bulk lager.

Burk på Kreta. Guldgul vätska med vitt skum. Mycket lättdrucken grekbira som slinker ner fint på stranden
