UPDATED: JUN 24, 2015 I hadnít really intended on this being my 1500 entry but I needed a beer and was at Artopolis in Greek town and had this yet. A meh, euro macro lager more on the sweet side ala Heineken. Not great but not offensive maybe a little too grainy. On the plus side the staff at Artopolis was well proportioned. Serving: Bottle

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 (606) - 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.

12oz bottle pours clear golden with large white head. Aroma of malt and grass. Taste starts out rather nicely with malts, grains and caramel but on an offensive mineral bitterness. Pretty good with Avgolemono Chicken Soup.

Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of grass and cereal. Tastes of sweet malt and grass. Strong skunk taste. Kind of stale. Easy drinking. Not offensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For what it is, Hillas isnít bad. Itís not the least bit skunky and itís pretty smooth. Boy is it ever sweet, though. The cereal grains are starchy to the extreme. Maybe itís just my hop-jaded palate, but the sweetness was too close to cloying for my taste. Still fun to get another Greek rate.

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

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.
