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.

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.

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

Better than expected Greek pale lager...pallid pour, decent head. low adjunct odor, moderate creamed corniness, and light caramel notes. I guess my point is that it’s blandness is actually it’s best selling point.

Bottle. Poured pale gold with thick white head. Faint aroma of malt and medicine. Little bit of malt in the flavour, with a lot of medicine. Flat mediciney finish and an unpleasant burn. I would not drink this 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.

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.

Bland. Pours gold with a white head. Little aroma. Typical flavor of corn and some malt sweetness. Not much to the flavor, pretty bland. Boring.
