Bottled. Tried this because I wanted a Greek beer in a Greek restaurant. Tried to speak Greek with the manager -- he said I knew more Greek than he did. A big, long-lasting, off-white head on a tan-amber beer. Smell of malt with a note of hops. Not much else here. Taste is slightly sweet, almost sticky -- much rounder than I was expecting from a lager. Lots of carbonation. An okay beer -- don’t go across town to get one, but if you happen to be in a Greek restaurant, give one a try.

i’m not going to lie, but i bought this because of the name. not that bad, though. it has an unoffensive, slightly buttery bready/grain flavor with a sprinkle of citrus.

The funniest part about this beer was having the cashier call for a price check over the intercom. Even she had to laugh. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head. Has an earthy mushroom and corn aroma. There is also some bread. The flavor is celery with a little colby cheese. There is also a hint of coffee and honey.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2008 The first few times I had this beer I was eating at my Favorite Greek restaurant and well the food is so good I think it made this Beer a 20. Yet when I had this beer by it self it was ok but nothing special.

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.

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.

Braudog (6115) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JAN 2, 2005
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.

(33 cl can, bought in Greece). Pale golden colour, low head. Weak aroma, weak "neutral" flavour. Poor, but not offensive.
