1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

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

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
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!

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
