Bottle at home. Has a golden reddish brown colour with a medium, light beige head. Dried fruit in the aroma along with leather, fudge, and bread. Sweet flavour with more caramel, dried fruit and roasted almonds. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A pretty nice vienna but maybe a bit too sweet.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a dark red body, with an average light brown head that diminishes quickly, but leaves a good lace. Heavy caramel aroma, with a heavy sweet and caramel taste, very sweet, also notes of roasted malts. Pretty sticky, medium bodied, Average carbonation. I can assume that this is very sweet for some, but I enjoyed it nevertheless. An unexpectedly good one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 330 ml, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 5.8%
Bright red caramel colour on the body. Head is just a bit taller than one finger, off-white in colour, with average retention and it leaves light lacing as it collapses.
Aroma of malts but not heavy, caramel, a bit of strawberry juice (?).
Taste follows the aroma, quite a bit of caramel, then (heavier now) malts flavour on the aftertaste, along with a good bitterness with medium duration.
Medium thin body, a bit too much carbonation.
Overall a decent beer, a good alternative to the wider available lagers of the greek market.
