2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly pale gold, with ring head. (3-)
Aroma: Light fruits, a bit of pineapple. (5+)
Fruits in the mouth, pleasant but slightly messy. Taste is weak.
Pineapple and coconut in the finish, and a touch of earthiness.
Something’s missing here, but this does have some good hops in it.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle from Oddbins Tunbridge Wells. What a surprise - a Greek beer at this little bottgle shop. Clear golden colour, mid-sized white head. Lovely bitter-sweet caharcter, malty base with lots of grassy hops - somewhere near a good Bohemian Pilsener. Delicioius and very moreish!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Has a clear, golden straw colour with an off-white medium head. Aroma of fruity hops, hay and some bubble gum. A little diacetyl in the back. The flavour is similar and is light and fresh with nice hops lurking around. Balanced. Slick and light mouth feel, and a light to medium bitterness. A fresh and well hopped pilsener. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500 ml, bought in Greece. Poured into a pilsner glass. ABV 5%
Ridiculously sized head, my glass became full of foam as I poured the beer in it. Is collapsing quite fast though, so I was able to fill up the glass. Soapy and thick foam that leaves heavy lacing on the glass. Colour of the beer is a golden yellow one, with lots of activity in it.
Malts on the aroma that smell very fresh, some straw too, hops and citrus notes.
Malts on the taste as well and pretty much the flavour follows the aroma. After the malts and straw the citrusy hops are kicking in, making this one very very bitter, at least for a pilsner, and with a very long duration too.
Thin body, good carbonation, a little below average I’d say.
Really great pilsner and if this is so bitter I can only imagine how their ACE IPA will be.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Athens, Greece:
Sweet on the nose with some citrus and a lot of grassyhops. There is some pine and a fresh smelling, lively aroma that is sprinkled with light malts as well.
Golden straw with a clear body and a thumb sized, foamy white head.
Grassy hops & some citrus again with touches of pine on the tastebuds but the overriding taste is a lemon citrus one that is incredibly bitter.
Strong carbonation with lots of pine and citrus bitterness, particularly from the lemon. The beer is a crisp and dry one at the end with too much bitterness.
A great start, particularly the aroma and was a beer that I was looking forward to tasting after pouring some out but the taste proved to be far to bitter for my liking and it wasn’t a good beer from that point on sadly. There was plenty of carbonation and the beer had a lively feel to it. There was too much lemon bitterness though & the beer was a struggle to finish towards the end.
