Quite an amber coloured lager. Little head and little carbonation. Some sweetness. Fairly enjoyable for a lager.

Halovány aranyló szín, gyorsan a semmibe vesző habkorona. Malátás borsos zöldséges illat. Kevésbé testes édeskés, enyhén kesernyés íz. Alacsony szénsav tartalom vizezett jelleg. Nyáron sütögetés mellé megfelel, de egyébként teljesen jellegtelen.

AdiBeer (1034) - 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.

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.

Borresteijn (4647) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2011
33cl Bottle brought from Syros, Greece by my in-laws, thanks Kerry&Petros. Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of sweet corn, wet paper, light sweet lemon. Flavour is medium sweet, light malty, corn, light paper, a bit of lemon in the finish. Slightly dry. Light bodied. Nothing wrong with this imo, but not very good either.
