3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 330ml @PBFVIII
Clear amber color, small steady white head. Fruity, perfumic aroma. Medium-bodied. Very fruity, almost candy-like sweetness. Quite nice fruity DIPA, probably the best Greek beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, The Local Bar, Athens)
Mid-orange, hazy, with off-white head.
Slightly dusty hops dominate in the aroma. Almost piney.
Taste very hoppy, with no single hop of the three (Amarillo,
Centennial, El Dorado) dominating. It’s a bit ’hop juice’. Does
cover the alcohol without tasting sweet. (taste: 6+)
Tingly, lasting hoppy finish. Resiny.
Well-crafted but not my favourite of their beers. Worked better for
Nic than for me.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Greekbeershop.gr. Pours murky dark amber with a big nice looking creamy off-white head. Lovely piney aroma, deep and powerful, sensing the sweet malty body underneath. Taste is fresh, supercrisp resinousy piney,lifted by a generous carbonation level, prickling my mouth all over, also light oily mouthfeel, good balanced, with a perfect level of bitterness, this must be the best beer from Greece by far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Zythodon, Platanias, Greece. Says vintage 2012 on the label (for some reason). Has a hazy deep orange colour with a small, beige head. Fruity flavour with grapes, fruity hops, oak, orange and hints of barnyeard. Complex. The flavour is more like an imperial india pale ale, compact with grapefruit and something herbal, and has some ammonia in the end. Has a slick and rich mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. Is a fruity and complex DIPA. Really one of a kind.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 500 ml, bought in Greece and brought all the way back home. Time to drink it! Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 8.2%
Very deep orange golden colour on the body, almost light red.Two fingers of off-white head, good retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of tropical fruits that hits you right after you open the bottle, some caramel, resin.
Taste is malty, lots of tropical fruits, some caramel again. More sweet than bitter but still drinks very pleasantly and the bitterness is present on the aftertaste anyway, along with some spices.
Medium thick body, good carbonation with a necessary bite on the tongue and very dry palate.
Easily the best greek beer I’ve ever drunk, here is to more creative experiments from Septem and to more wide distribution too.
