12 oz. bottle served into a mini-pint. Had at a Greek restaurant in down town Chicago. A: Pours a clear yellow color with a pure white head forming on the pour. The head has great retention and sticks around for quite sometime. It recedes slowly leaving behind some sopay lace. S: Mineral water, some grain and noble hops. T: Same with some pale malt, cereal grain and surprisingly fresh noble hop character. M: Highly drinkable with a light body. Medium carbonation. O: Decent enough Euro pale lager, but still not that great. Serving type: bottle

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2015 I hadn’t really intended on this being my 1500 entry but I needed a beer and was at Artopolis in Greek town and had this yet. A meh, euro macro lager more on the sweet side ala Heineken. Not great but not offensive maybe a little too grainy. On the plus side the staff at Artopolis was well proportioned. Serving: Bottle

Bottle. Pours clear golden yellow with a large white head that dissipates slowly with surprisingly nice lacing. Aroma is standard pale lager - grain, a bit of corn syrup, and grass. Flavor is about the same, lightly sweet with a light grassy bitter finish. Light body. No obviously metallic or otherwise off notes. Not bad for what it is.

330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves a few spots of lacing. Aroma is light malts and hops. Taste is light sweet and mild bitter. LIght body and bubbly carbonation. Clean finish. A respectable macro style lager.

In a bottle at Greek islands. Not bad. Pours like a miller lite. Clean and crisp flavor. I liked it better than peroni ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle - Looks like ginger ale. Absolutely stunningly clear yellow body. Tons of bubbles coating the inside of the glass. No appreciable head. Aroma of corn. Flavor actually reminds me of a Pilsner Urquel that’s seen its better days. Bit of a funky aftertaste on the palate. Has a 09/09/12 expiration date so don’t know how much more fresh this could be short of sitting at a cafe in Athens.

Not an actual Greek beer per se. This country has no recent brewing history, their oldest brewery this one is only like 2 years old if that. the company that is behind this is a Greek importer in Chicago. Overall it isn’t bad, I had it with a really spicy bowl of chili, it turned out to be quite fruity and unoffensive. Jsut your standard EPL.

(bottle 7/12/11 at Jake & Tellys). Clear gold color. Medium off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor of the same, with light grain. Avg duration. Light lasting grainy finish. Thin texture. Soft to moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

12oz bottle at a greek place. Light in color and aroma. Not much in the flavor department either. Some light citrus but mostly malt and adjuct flavor. Another attempt to make Americans happy.
