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.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 that’s not really saying all that much.

Not good. Light bread with grapefruit and soured milk aromas but not the good kind of all of those. Med creamy white head. Not much flavor, I can’t even remember what it tasted like. Get Aegean(spelling?).

Looks nice enough, light gold with a frothy white head, but the other raters have nailed it. There’s nothing to this beer. Almost no scent, no taste... merely suggestions of malt and corn in both. I’d still drink this before most of the BMCs, ’cause at least it’s not offensive.

Pretty much water, but not bad tasting water, that says alot! No real flavor to speak of, but not terrible. I could drink alot of these with some hot indian food!

I asked the guy at the bar what Hillas was. He told me it was greek beer, like amstel light. I never had greek before so I tried it... tastes like amstel light (nothing).

Smells and tastes literally like nothing. Like carbonated water almost, with a small hint of corn and rice in the finish. I’ve had water more flavor it seems. Tastes a little like tissue paper after an entire bottle. Weird.
