Bottle. Red it is. It smells sugary sweet, and has a soft palate with malt sugars lingering on the tongue. Very caramelized. Tastes like a supermarket dark lager.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. It’s color is more hazy orangelike than red actually and it has white foam. You can smell the wild fruit aroma and there’s a slight idea of caramel in it’s taste. The taste is pretty light though so it’s not as enjoyable as other red beers. But it is a good and a pretty cheap choice when you’re visiting northen greece. Worth it...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from carrefour between , rhodes city and faliraki,rhodes, greece.
(was almost no bottles left)
clear red brown, offwhite smooth thick head.
aroma of caramel and toffee.
flavor is toffee, dark caramel, subdued hops, hops however play a large role to hit this one home - they balnce the beer very well indeed. this is the second very well brewed and well tasting beer i’ve had from macedonian thrace brewery - when they want to, they do make a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2009 Finally I found it. Since it is brewed in northern Greece , it was quite difficult to find this in Athens. At the end I found it 1’ away from me.
Red color. Not so much aroma , sweet caramel like. The taste is pretty complex. Very pleasant sweetness, notes of nuts , caramel and some fruit. Very good aftertaste. Recommended !
