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.

Ummmm, this one is tough to comment on to be perfectly honest. Aroma was non-existent, a bit of skunk and a bit of a grassy nose. Flavor is very weak with some sweetness, but notice a very dry, ícardboardyí aftertaste as well. Very easy to drink with little body; Iíll stick with Miller Lite when I need a quick drinking beer

BitchesBrew (714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2007
Pours a clear, yellowish color. Aroma hardly anything at all. Flavors are not too offensive, but not all that tasty, either. Corn sweetness, almost cloying after a few sips. Not something I ever need to drink again.

There was really nothing to this beer. Taste didnít have anything good or anything bad, for that matter it didnít really have taste at all. Very watery and neutral on the palate. You got a slight sense of malt sweetness, but it went away so fast I thought I might have imagined it. Light orange peel flavor left in the after taste, not that citrusy taste like some beers use for character, but actually that pithy taste like you were chewing on an orange peel. Coulda been worse, could have had bad flavors, better to not have much flavor then to have bad flavors.

Nothing much in the nose ... although slightly hoppy. Pale yellow with thin, white head. Sweeter than hoppy. Medium-light bodied.

jimhilt (2387) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Pours a four finger bubbly white head that fades to a thin layer leaving a little lace. Light clear amber color. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Piney, grassy nose. Starts nearly balanced just on the hoppy side not finding any sweetness, simple lager, slight soapy aftertaste. $1.65 for a 330ml bottle from Johnís Market Tigard, Or. Best before July 7, 2006 and still okay.

This pale lager pours a light orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is grainy, cardboard, wet socks and tape. A medium to light bodied pale lager. Malts are cereal and sweet. Lots of hay and lemongrass. Cardboardy and watery. Tastes better than it smells. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2006
This beer pours a yellow color with a nearly non-existant white soapy head and no lacing at all! The aroma is all corn and vegetables, specifically asparagus and green beans. Really has a horrific odor of smelly wet socks, cardboard and tape. DRY cardboardy flavor that just rips the tongue apart. CARDBOARD,.,,,box this up and send it to the shit factory! Lemony and honey aftertaste but it is WAY too late to save this from the shithouse. Carbonation is flat.....horrid horrid horrid. I believe this is very Gluek-esque...honey mixed with matricide! So disgustingly dry....

12 oz bottle at Pegasus Cafe in Rancho Bernarno. 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.

bhensonb (10696) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Very light aroma - arguably malt. Light gold color. Frothy white head. Starts light malty sweet, sort of thin with a hint of metal at the middle, finishes with light sweetness and a hint of malt. Better than Bud, but thatís not really saying all that much.
