500 ml bottle with interesting story on a nicely designed label. Pours clear amber with nice white head that keeps well. Nice lacing. Aroma has a good balance of bready grain and more than one hops, and also citrucy and floral undertones. Tastes a good balance of sweetness and hop bitterness. A full bodied beer with medium carbonation, light texture with a crisp and interesting finish. A very good Greek pilsner from an island microbrewery. I will certainly enjoy it again at Tinos or Syros...and pair it with Greek food.

Nice surprise. Clean pilsner execution with little in the way of flaws to mention.

Bottle. What an undervalued gem this is. Crisp, clean, aromatic, simple yet effective. Less grainy than its German counterparts, with a nice, grassy-lemony hop aroma and flavour, not too bitter actually, with a light, slightly honeyish residual sweetness. Could drink this everyday.

No está mal de sabor, algo de consistencia y tiene un regusto amargo al final. No es mi estilo favorito de cerveza.

Nice lager, a bit more hoppy and fuller body. Notes of grapefruit and quite refreshing. Better alternative to the Heineken beers on Naxos.

This is definitely an improvement, compared to mainstream lagers. It is more hoppy and has a better body. But try to compare it to any craft beer, and it stands no chance (even by the -admitedly lower- Greek standards).

Achel (274) - Ioannina, GREECE - JUL 18, 2015
Clear burnished gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and semi dry. Light fine carbonation. Light pale malt, mild grain and paper. Whisper of citrus. Light dry finish

Missos Cyclades. Tan bottle, 500ml, supermarket , Crete. Pours pale amber with a thick white head subsiding slowly. Scent is medium grassy pilsener. Taste is sense full bodied pilsener with complex sweet notes. Finish is dry and simple. Great

Bottle at Herb’s Garden, 5/31/15
Cloudy golden color small white head. Okay aroma of bready malts. Lemon notes. Similar flavor. Slightly off in nose and taste. Decent feel, clean enough. Slightly over carbonated.

chinchill (3356) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Purchased (thanks Jessica) and enjoyed in Sfakia, Crete. 330 ml bottle with a BB date stamp of 25-10-2015. Amber body is a little darker than usual for a pils, and is covered by a creamier head. Clearly not true to style, this is a malt forward beer. Ignoring that, this is a very pleasant and tasty beer.

More sweet that one could expect from a Pilsener. Highly drinkable though. Interesting aroma and taste. A good addition to the roster of Greek craft beers.
