perhaps passable in a scorching Mediterranian heat, Hillas falls short in the US, coming across as a typical adjunt-ridden Pils imitation. Corny with no hops character, this br ew misses the mark completely.

Atom (2134) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2011
12oz bottle pours clear golden with large white head. Aroma of malt and grass. Taste starts out rather nicely with malts, grains and caramel but on an offensive mineral bitterness. Pretty good with Avgolemono Chicken Soup.

bb (8452) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle. Light golden beer with an off-white head. Mineral and light grass aroma. Sweet malt flavor with light caramel and light citrus. Medium bodied. Sweet malt and light caramel lingers.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light golden with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor are quite sweet, a murky maltiness, some fruity esters, some corn and graininess, almost no hops. Reminded me of too many bad Ukrainian and Russian beers I’ve had. Gets particularly unpleasant as it warms. Not truly awful ... but not good.

adnielsen (10475) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2010
330 mL bottle. Light pale yellow appearance with a frothy white head. Sweet pale malts in the nose. Fairly sweet and fairly bitter bland pale lager. Not that great. Actually pretty gross

BeerandBlues2 (12045) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy and particulate gold with a small, fizzy white head, low retention with flat head. Aroma is heavy malt (straw, meal), light hops (earthy), light esters (fruity) with notes of peaches. Flavor is heavy malt (straw, meal, bread), light hops (earthy), light esters (fruity) with notes of peaches. Light body, low creaminess and warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.

This beer tastes like someone basted tinfoil in water, threw in a pinch of salt and a block of wood into the mix, then began to strain the liquid and funneled it into a bottle. There is no reason to drink this beer, other than morbid curiosity and a lust for masochism. I am Greek, which makes me even more terrified of this lager. You have angered the Gods, Macedonian Thrace Brewery!

troopie (2293) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle. Poured pale gold with thick white head. Faint aroma of malt and medicine. Little bit of malt in the flavour, with a lot of medicine. Flat mediciney finish and an unpleasant burn. I would not drink this again.

jstraw (1962) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Gold with big, foamy white head / Floral nose of honey and corn / Light to medium body, somewhat sweet and fat with low carbonation, but with good balance and dry finish / Flavors of honey, violets, and corn / As far as pale lagers go, this is a pretty good one. Very pilsner-like.

Thanks, Budweiser, for making the world think they need to copy you. Just another typical light lager that you couldn’t pick out of a lineup of any other random light lagers. Nothing special to see here, move along.
