3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It turns out that I am immature and filthy-minded enough to buy a beer just because it almost has a funny name - God knows there’s really little else to recommend it appearance-wise. The label looks real cheap and frankly Greek beer doesn’t have the best reputation. Despite all this it’s actually quite a nice beer. It probably has enough malt character to warrant classification as a Helles, really. Nice spaghetti, biscuity, German-style maltiness in the aroma. More light biscuity fresh malt flavour with only enough hop to balance. Pretty light-bodied but it works well. Simple but really drinkable, though even VB tastes good after playing bball.

Might be my favorite Greek brew. Nice effervesence, beading goes on throughout, tickles the tongue and throat, and soon it’s gone and you need another one, if only to extinguish the flames on your waiter’s head as his thick black hair catches fire while serving saganaki to the table of tourists from Indiana next to you.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hugh off white head atop a straw colored body. Lot of lace. Rivals many a pils out there. Light pale malt aromas and hint of floral hops in the background. Sweet flowery flavors from the start that get more perfumy as it lingers on the palate. Slightly grassy and bitter in the finish and a touch of husky malt. Actually, a lot better then most pale lager made in the States.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright yellow and calm as a still mountain lake, but poured with a massive mountain of a head. What little aroma I could get smelled like dirty socks, but that may have been me, so I discounted it. The flavor is exceptionally sweet for a lager, highly corned, maybe a hint of syrupy fruit, kinda like those canned fruit cocktails.

Pours a yellow with a small head. No real aroma and the flavor is super sticky and sweet. I mean really sweet! Kind of like one of those honey beers. Why is this so sweet? Not very good.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
(33 cl can, bought in Greece). Pale golden colour, low head. Weak aroma, weak "neutral" flavour. Poor, but not offensive.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled(500ml). -this is the only bottled beer(except Mythos) that I found in shops and supermarkets in Athens, like other greek beers there is nothing special to said about this lager, malty aroma, too much carbonated, bitter finish

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This pours a nice golden, bubbly drink with a decent head. It’s a tad sweet for my liking with a heavy hand on the sweetness. It does fill the mouth nicely but finishes on the sour, winy side.
