Not pleasant. At first, it just tastes like any old pale lager, but then a horrible tang hits in the palate. Not for me.

Gold with a white head. Weak aroma and taste of some malt and hops. Light, watery finish..nothing special.

330 ml can from IN.KA, Chania. ABV is 5%. Clear golden body and a small off-white head. Sour fruity and grassy notes mixes with wet cardboard on the nose. Acidic and cardboard bitter flavors with a malty hint in the finish. Light to medium bodied.

Bottle. I bought this because I needed Greece for my collection, and yes, for the name. It reminds me of this bit that Margaret Cho does (she is the ONLY funny female comedienne) where she’s talking about going to the gyno and the lady prepping her is this old chick who says (in a hick voice), "My name’s Gwen, I’ll be warshin’ your vergina". It’s hilarious to hear a second-gen Asian with a flat voice doing a hick impersonation. Ahh yes, I’m supposed to be rating this stuff. Pale, big head, fizzy. The aroma is a total skunkfarm, but this doesn’t quite come through in the flavor. Instead it’s just plain flat and watery, and it makes this a pretty mediocre beer.

Prodotto "di punta" del birrificio, questa pale lager è distribuita forse di più nella Grecia settentrionale; nel Peloponneso l’ho trovata solo in supermercato, prima a Nafplio e poi sull’Istmo. Aroma come al solito piuttosto ’sottile’ e sapore decisamente dolce. Dissetante ma fa schifo.

Bud from Greece? No aroma to speak of. It looks OK, light amber with a small white head. The flavor is some malt and little else. The finish is watery. Nothing much here.

light very light yellow color wth a white head. Malty aroma mainly a corny presence but a mildy skunky note too. Flavor was subtle and somewhat nutty. Easy to drink but mainly flavored watered.

Very light gold with a disappearing white head. Aroma...artificial corn perhaps? Taste is all water with metallic bitter overtones. I enjoy pale lagers, but this is Greece’s answer to Keystone.

The name of this Greek beer conjures up possibilities - what could it taste like? Pours pale with large, gassy crown. Handsome, conservative label. Not much smell - a touch of floral hops, mixed with steel. The taste is fairly typical watery Eurobrew, halfway between lager and pilsner. Some cereal, hops, and sweetness. The addition of lime turns up the metallic taste.
