Better than expected Greek pale lager...pallid pour, decent head. low adjunct odor, moderate creamed corniness, and light caramel notes. I guess my point is that it’s blandness is actually it’s best selling point.

Had this one bottled at Greekfest at the Kane County Fairgrounds in St. Charles, Illinois. Clear, medium yellow pour with a thin white head, nose is typical of the style, corny and lightly malty. Sweet maltiness and a bit of hops in the flavor. Not terrible, and certainly great with some great Greek food.

spikester (602) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 17, 2008
Poured pale gold with a modest head, no lacing. Aroma is a bit corny. Taste is slight sweet malt with just a touch of hop bitterness. A clean refreshing copy of American macro lager. A little less carbonation than them. A pretty good beer to order next time you are in Greece. Just donít expect too much. Code date is 12/13/07.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Had a couple bottles of this at The Parthenon Restaurant in Chicago. Pale yellow color. Very grainy and somewhat sweet flavor. Very typical pale lager, but now I can say that Iíve had a Greek beer.

stavros (3) - Glyfada, GREECE - NOV 3, 2007 does not count
Pale yellow and thin. Sweet with no hop tatse. Light bodied. I like lighter beers with greek food but notthis light.

Kiwano (17) - USA - AUG 5, 2007
Also had this beer at a greek restaurant in the US. Was told it was like Heiniken but it was much lighter and had less flavor. It didnít contrast with what I was eating and was pretty innocuous. Went down light and smooth but not interesting or flavorful enough to have again

tangentrider (144) - Alabama, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Very light malt aroma. Slightly bitter with some malt flavor. Fairly long bitter finish. Itís an okay lager, but it went very well with the lamb souvlaki--so itís all good.

dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 20, 2007
Deep straw/light gold in color with a large white head. Aroma is a bit of sulphur and veggetables/corn. Flavor is sweet,spicy, hop bitterness is assertive for such a light beer.Thin body , finishes dry.

Hillas from Greece, ..... 6 overall, ..... yep thatís the one. Got a bottle of this at The Greek Islands, Chicago. The waiter told me, its like Heineken. Ok whatever, Iím more in the mood for this than a heine. Straw yellow in color, clear, tiny bubbles rising to a white head. Grain aroma mixed with old. Like they probably bought 100 cases of around 2001 and theyíre still selling it. Flavor reflected the aroma. Not much really to say grain, initially sweet going to a dry grain "old pale lager taste". At least its Greek and at least my boss picked up the tab.
