2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yellow. Little head. Skunky/flowery aroma. Highly carbonated. A little bitter initially, then nothing. Smooth and inoffensive, but not much going on.

Clear yellow coloured, very light carbonation. Large white head. Skynky grainy sweet aroma. Somewhat wattery body. Finish is again wattery without much taste. Very medium lager. Too sweet and wattery.

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle: Poured a cloudy gold colour with minimal head. Smelled skunky and didn’t taste any better. Really not a lot going on with this one. Similar taste to a Corona without the lime. I’m not in a hurry to try this again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2007 Compared to some of that other Grecian rubbish, this is different league. A discernible sniff of skunky hops. Sweet, malty, smooth-bodied and refreshingly drinkable. Does everything your holiday lager should do, and well worth the extra 10c. The best Greek beer I’ve tried. Heineken aside. Better out of a bottle than on draught, and warmer than liquid nitrogen. (Re-rate summer ’07) What the hell was I talking about?? Baked bean, rust, bunny hutch, wholemeal. Tastes offputtingly like a no alcohol beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Pale gold with some hopcitrus in the aroma and flavor, plus a noticeable thiol smell. Boring palate and about as complex as a Florida State final exam.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Canned and draft. Pale lager without much taste, but a much needed source of liquid after a day in the sun. Very similar to Fix, Alpha etc.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled: Golden color, nearly no head. Grainy, sweet aroma. Flavor is sweetish and grainy, too. light dry bitter aftertaste. Not too bad.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden lager, little or no head. Strong aroma with rich, flowery buqouet of hops. Something very bitter in taste, good variety of flavours but absolutely no finish. Bubbly. Excellent for Greece in the summer, bonus points for the scenery most likely seen when enjoying this Greek must-have.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Numenor for this one. Light gold, slight head. Grainy aroma and matching flavor. Terrible, biting palate, Not awful for the style, but not the best thing in the world either. My wife switched over to port after tasting this one.
