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.

anstei (1012) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - JUN 9, 2016
Bottle, as Kaiser Pilsner in Greece. A pleasant surprise after all the sweet Greek lagers: This one is only a bit sweet on the palate, but not in taste. Probably calls itself pilsner because of that, although it’s not much of one. Medium to low bitterness, low aroma and taste, a bit watery. Low but noticeable carbonation.

Kauge (1527) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 30, 2016
Bottle as Kaiser Pilsner at Pappas Taverna and Ouzeri in Metéora, Greece. BB 03.2017. Clear golden, modest white head with good retention. Pretty random macro hoppy-ish pale lager aroma and flavour. Papery dry. More malty than hoppy. Really faint grassy pilsnery bitterness in the finish. Meh.

Quack-Duck (9110) - Down South, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2016
bottle from Heinrichs 3000 Kornwestheim. Pale yellow, tall white head. Cardboardy hoppy aroma. Shy malty base, some hops with hints of cardboard and dust. Thin and quite boring. Poor Kaiser.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with a fine white head, medium retention. Malty aroma and some nice grassy hops. Taste has some initial sweetness, followed by light body and some mild bitterness in the finish. light and drinkable.
