Bottle 50cl. A clear light golden colour with a high, creamy,, white head. An aroma of malt, grass and fruit. The taste is medium sweet and light bitter. A medium to thin body, oily to watery texture, soft carbonation and a light bitter finish.

A can from my ex-girlfriend: Pours a golden color with a quickly dissipating head. The aroma has a whiff of hops, but nothing really offensive. Taste is pretty bland. Tiny bit of grain and hops. Aftertaste has a slight sweetness. This is by no means horrible, but really nothing out of the ordinary. I think most of the people complaining about it got skunked bottles.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Pours gold with a thick white head. That is the best thing about this beer because it tastes and smells like a putrid mess. The worst Greek beer I have ever tasted and one of the worst beers I have ever tasted.

Very pale, next to no head. No recognisable smell. Slightly malty, very watery. A faint aroma of apples. Lack of taste. Bleh.

eyes_wide_shut (107) - Haifa, ISRAEL - AUG 19, 2011
At a tasting in Shachar’s house, thanks Shachar, bottle, clear, pours light gold with a very smallish white head, gently sparkling, corn and hay aroma, sweet taste, light body, flows, and overall a simple and boring beer.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Wine & Spirits in Calgary, AB during July 2011. Called "Alfa Beer". Colour is simple yellow with low lacing white head. Nose: Basic and simple barley, yeast and minimal hop. Some spring garden herbs. Very much a mediterrainian or baltic lager smell. Taste: Medium-light sweet, light bitter, light sour. Simple maltose dominant taste. Very standard and average stuff.

Spab (4003) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2011
330 ml (green) bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear lightish golden colour with small white head. Light grainy malt in the aroma with a whiff of grass. Taste is slightly sour grains and a light grassy finish. Meh.

3.2
Strangebrewer (1334) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2011
bottle. Poured clear amber with a thin white head. Sweet grainy slightly hoppy aroma. Mid carbonation and feel. Light bready malt flavour with some bitterness in the finish. A nice standard lager.
