Straw color with a white bubbly head. Malt aroma with a touch of grassy hops. Grainy, sweet malts, and mild bitter hops flavor. Easy to drink beer.

Pretty much terrible. Aroma of cheap skunky flavours. Colour is plain, boring. Looks like the regulr lager and holds nothing that could be considered premium. Flvour of ground, limited flavour overall.

Bottle, Hotel Kronos, Iraklion, Crete.
I suppose this is the Greek Fosters, although it probably isn’t quite that bad. Available seemingly everywhere I turned whilst on holiday, so had to try once. Predictably dull, but not wholly repellent. Stick to the local red wine and raki when in Crete is my advice.

At an slijterij in the makado centre purmerend, golden medium head, very boring south european one like most beers from turky, spain, and italy.
Almost no grain and hops

Mass produced lager, though slightly spice-er than expected and had a hint of citrus. Nothing special, but it still was enjoyable when paired with some loukoumades (Greek doughnut holes)at a Greek festival.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a pale straw with a very bubbly white head that receded fairly quickly and left decent lacing. The aroma is pretty tame with some corn and light sweet malts. The taste is on the sweeter side of things as lagers go with a solid malt backbone with some typical lager grains as well. The mouthfeel is bubbly with a slightly unpleasant bitterness in the finish. This is pretty drinkable, especially while sitting on the beach in Crete, but I would put this on my recommended list.

0.33 l can bought in a market in Tirana, Albania. Nice, a new beercountry. It poured pale yellow body with medium sized head. Weak aroma of some malts...a bit grainy. Sweet malty flavor, not bad, but again very simple and one-dimensional beer. Some hints of corn and boring hops felt. Sweet-sourish aftertaste rounds it. Drinkable, might be refreshing, but a lower average pale lager.

Can courtesy of and shared with heavy who found it in Albania (thanks!)
Poured a golden-yellow body with a medium sized thick white head that went away fast. Slightly acidic, cabbagey nose, a bit grainy. Honeyish light sweet taste, some low quality hops, a bit corn, maybe light cabbage again, a bit flowery in a way. All in all not impressive.

Bottle from the LCBO. Dull golden colour with no head. Aroma has a bit of skunk, with a strong herbal note, some tobacco leaf, and sickly sweet malt - not very nice. Flavour is stronger than expected, and not especially pleasant, with a sweet start leading to a grassy finish with a harsh end-note. Body is overly carbonated, which makes the finish extra harsh. Yeah, this is pretty bad.
