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 canít even remember what it tasted like. Get Aegean(spelling?).

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.

Pale clear yellow. Sweaty perfume aroma, strange overrule grape notes, metal, minerals, antifreeze. Sticky sweet grains, corny, flabby, sugary. Undercarbonated oily mouthfeel.

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

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.

12oz bottle - Looks like ginger ale. Absolutely stunningly clear yellow body. Tons of bubbles coating the inside of the glass. No appreciable head. Aroma of corn. Flavor actually reminds me of a Pilsner Urquel thatís seen its better days. Bit of a funky aftertaste on the palate. Has a 09/09/12 expiration date so donít know how much more fresh this could be short of sitting at a cafe in Athens.

>> Pours clear, deep gold. Soda foam. Nose is sweet sugar, sweet candied lemon. Taste is candied lemon, stickier sugar, higher fusel notes.

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.

spikester (604) - 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.

clear pale yellow, small quickly dissipating head, medium lacing. nose of airy corn. grainy flavor, light bitterness, not offensive, but mostly corny. light bodied, dry finish with slightest bitter aftertaste. not bad. thanks to cornfield for the bottle.
