Atheist_Peace (1042) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2011
330ml bottle. Clear light golden pour with white head that doesn’t last and leaves almost zero lace. Smells like toasted corn with the faintest of lemony hints. Tastes like any other green bottled beer; corny with a faint light struck quality.

Can. Very pale, thin white head. Smells of wood and malt. Taste is light bodied with little sweetness, also some acids. Finish is medium bitter, not so many hop tones.

Poured from the bottle into a pint glass at the Greek place around the corner from us. Color is quite dark for the style. Mild copper is what I would say. No real head or lacing. The nose is skunked hops and cardboard. The taste is just downright awful and I could barely stomach more than a sip, but I powered on through a few ounces. This beer is just horrendous. Wow. Light and skunky. Drinkability is quite poor, to say the least. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 11-24-2010

Ah, what a nice aroma from this greek-dutch beer. Smells how a light lager should smell. Taste is ok but not as close to good as the smell promises.

Bottle... Clear golden lager with a small, white head that dissipates in a flash. The nose is of pale malt and faint European hops - a touch spicy. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Decent balance - sufficient earthy bitterness. Crisp, lightly bitter finish. This seems like more a premium lager than a pale lager as this beer contains no adjuncts and the color isn’t piss yellow. Just sayin’.

Green bottle, obviously if you don’t want it so smell and taste like donkey piss get it fresh, even then it sucks pretty hard.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Pours golden with a decent soapy looking head that reduces at a moderate pace. Non offensive aromatics. Medium nectar with soft and expansive carbonation. Pretty much flavorless with a defined bittering component.

Hansen (8618) - Assentoft, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2011
A bit odd. Medium yellow color and clear .Has a white head, mostly diminishing. Aroma is moderate malty and light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and finish light bitter. Dry, watery texture and lively carbonation.

dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Bottle pours pale yellow with a white head. Aroma shows notes of grainy malt and a touch of grassy hops. Flavor shows basically the same. Overall body is light as well the bitterness. Typical pale lager and i’m sure i’d be drinking something of this nature should I visit Greece.

2.1
Russo (2013) - Hemhofen, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle 500ml in Athens. Pale yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma almost nothing maybe some malt. Taste is the same with some grass note. Mouthfeel is quite dry.
