tmrmwel (1284) - Bergen, - JAN 30, 2013
Bottle. Pours light yellow, with a finger thick head. Aroma is very slightly bitter, with some not too nice notes of cardboard and grass. Flavour is sweet with caramel and orange, as well as some spicy hops.

MarkoNm (1481) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 3, 2015
Pours a typical golden color, topped with average frothy white head. Very mild aroma, some malty notes and some grains. Not much there, really. A light malty taste, slight sweetness in beginning and mild bitterness in the finish. Drinkable when ice cold. nothing special.

Bottle in tulum mexico. Very little aroma. Slightly malty. Maybe like a European lager. Decent body for the style.

markschiedon (360) - NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Drinking from a 650 ml bottle. No special aroma, maybe some bitterness. The clear golden beer has a white head that slowly disappears. A medium bitter taste, like you would expect from a pilsner. Medium carbonation.

Renobob (1180) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
Bière basique plutôt maltée. Peu d’intérêt au-delà du fait qu’elle rafraîchit bien à Chypre !

Grumbo (874) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2015 Bottle brought back from Cyprus by a colleague. Clear yellow colour lager with an average sized white head. Aroma of grain, grass and hops. Drinkable on a warm day. 9/2/2014 Updated. Had a few glasses of this on draught during my recent visit to Paphos, Cyprus. Became my mainstay choice over KEO when nothing else available from smaller Cypriot brewers. Rather more golden. Aroma also with a touch of malt. Has a light appealing bitterness. Easy drinking, not too carbonation - quite a decent pale lager. 28/7/2015

johndoughty (4278) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 17, 2013
Bottle.Tried in Cyprus September 2013. Bronze with a medium head. Quite malty and a bit more distinctivel than the normal Euro Fizz. Probably the best beer in Cyprus but that’s not saying a lot.
