can. Clear pale yellow, large white head. Grainy and malty with some bitter hops, Hoppier than Vergina, also a good accompaniment to Greek food. During several holidays in Greece a few years ago I also had it bottled and draught.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Canned (thanks Gabriele, 5% ABV). A clear light yellow beer witrh a uie big, though not persistent white head.The aroma is simple and weak, slightly sourish, slightly malty and hoppy, and quite grainy. Medium sweetness in the flavour, skunky and sourish, with not much hops at all. Very light body, fizzy carbonation, short, almost not existent finish with almost not existent bitterness. I have the impression that i’m too generous with this beer, but however I’m happy for a new country.

0,33 bottle, almost no aroma, light golden color, no taste and no after taste. Very close to water. This beer only works on a hot beach in Greece..

Trivsam öl som inte lämnar något bestående intryck. Svalkar en varm sommardag, men inget man knäcker för att praktisera konnäsörskap. En halv tumme upp.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33 l bottle, 4,7 %. Pale golden color with quickly vanishing head. Honeyish aroma with herbal saaz hops and hint of glue. The flavor is also honeyish with herbal hops, light to medium bitterness. Fairly light bodied with a hint of something sticky or glue like in the palate. The hop aroma and flavor is light but quite nice.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a very pale straw yellow with a medium sized head and a lot of carbonation. Aroma is very skunky, corn and grain show through as well. Tastes of corn, grain, skunk, and I wish there was something else. Mouth feel is very typical of a Euro lager, and well so is the rest of the beer. More interesting than a North American macro, but that’s not saying much. I’ll take a Grolsch instead.

First enjoyed this beer while on beautiful beaches in Greek islands. Now I enjoy a bottle on occasion that reminds me of the Greek islands. Overall a whimpy, mildly skunky light lager that is more a sentimental drink for me.

Bottle from Greek deli’ on Cowley Rd 26-01-09 I’ve also had this frequently on holiday in Greece. Pours yellow with a white head. aroma is grainy and slight metallic tinge. Taste whilst quite clean isn’t as crisp as on would expect, bit maly quite grainy and really lacking throughout. I recall this tasting better on a balcony in Skopelos, but then that was in the summer a few years back and there was little else to chosse from. A5 A3 F4 P2 OV10 2.3
