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.

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.

Pale yellow and thin. Sweet with no hop tatse. Light bodied. I like lighter beers with greek food but notthis light.

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

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.

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.

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 (715) - 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.
