Brewed in Greece by Mythos. Head: white, medium-to-big, creamy-to-frothy, good retention. Colour: yellow-golden, clear. Aroma: malt, straw, slight sourness. Taste: starts bitter, slightly sour, balanced by malt sweetness. Nice, refreshing, crisp and clean, but kinda short on hops for a pilsner.

Bottle bought in Kalavrita, Greece (brewed by Mythos, Greece). Pours golden, clear, with distinct white head. Aroma of bread, malt, some DMS, little bit metallic. Tastes bitter, with a long lasting bitter finish. One of my favorites during my stay in Greece.

rosenbergh (8300) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2015
330 ml can. BB 10/2015. Brewed by Mythos Brewery in Greece. Clear golden colour with a small white head. Apple juice, bland malt and some other unfreshness in the aroma. The flavour is wet cardboard and some dryness. Very bad lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grima (2176) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle from Trinkgut in Idstein, Hesse, Germany!
Pours pale yellow with small soapy white head. Smell has some musty malts. Starts with a nice bitterness, some sweet malts and some hay. Finish is lax malty with some hay and some slight flowery hop notes.

eduardovl (1045) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 14, 2014
500ml bottle seved in a Weizen glass. Had this one during a vacations trip to Mykonos. Apparently, this is produced in Greece by Mythos Brewery (subsidiary of Carlsberg since 2008). Pours a golden yellow forming a big and bubbled white head. Very crispy and grainy with notes of grassy hops. Mild bitterness and some notes of adjunct malts. Well, a low quality German Pilsener which is, nevertheless, already slightly better than the equivalent Greek ones. [BA Review @ 5/29/2014]

abemorsten (3086) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2014
0,5 i can from Inka, Kolimbari. This is the one brewed under licence by Mythos and the ABV is 5%. Clear sparkling golden body with a fingerthick off-white head. The characteristic sour fruity wet cardboard nose prepares me for a short sweet flavor followed by a lingering papery bitterness with light acidity in the mouth. Light to medium bodied. As it heats more of the malts comes through but it is still overwhelmed by the papery bitterness.

Bottle. Gold with a big white head. Sweet and bready pilsner without much else going on. Not great.

330ml can from Flora Supermarket, Lindos. Pale golden colour, foamy white head leaving lacing and aroma of malt, grains, slight grassy. Taste is sweetish malty, grain, light grassy bitterness. Light bodied, high carbonation, dry lingering bitter finish. OK.
