Bottles at the Hotel Majestic Pool bar (5/26-28) & also sampled at the brewery (5/28/15)
Refreshing and easy drinking, this is a nice pool side style blonde that works very well in the style. The feel is clean, and while being fairly light, it is not watery on the mouth.

ILduce (222) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2015
330ml bottle from the brewery. Hazy golden orange beer with big fizzy head and some nice lace. Subtle aroma of citrus and floral hops with some bread. Sweet and malty balance out the grassy, bitter finish. Tasty ale with a decent body.

Douberd (3190) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAR 24, 2015
(Santorini Yellow Donkey) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 5%. Recommended to be kept refrigirated, this one spent a week in a box, travelling from Greece, let’s see. Slightly cloudy body, with lots of activity in it, a bright golden yellow beer. Tall and thick white head, with excellent retention. After it has slowly collapsed, light lacing is left behind. Nice aroma, some citrus notes, some perfume, pee, grains, light candy sugar and yeast. Taste shows no sign that it has gone bad, thanks God because I paid so much for shipping! Again grains and nice hoppy notes, more from the motueka hops than the cascade I’d say.Some light citrus and yeast. Mildly bitter finish with the bitterness having a good duration on the aftertaste. Medium body, carbonation seems a bit high at first but not on good levels eventually. Quite good and easy to drink.

Erasmus_ro (1893) - Alabama, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Tap @ Mama Roux, Athens, Greece. Pours a hazy yellowy orange, with a good, thick white head. Aroma is lemon, some citrus. Taste is very lemony, some cereal, strong, long lemony finish. Goes well with their blend of Mexican and Middle-Eastern fusion cuisine. Fresh and good.

rosenbergh (8564) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 26/07/2015. At the Barley Cargo, Athens, Greece. Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Mild floral hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and some malty notes in the aroma. The flavour is mild floral hops, mild sweetness and some maltiness. Too easy. I believe there was potential in those hops. Bit of a disappointment. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
