A decent beer I had from the large bottle in a restaurant beneath the Parthenon in Athens. The beer had a grainy hop aroma with a bith of barley malt and maybe some corn and floral tones. A clear gold color with a medium-sized foamy white head. The taste was a mostly full bitter effect, with the grainy charateristic and a bit of sourness. Slightly rougher bitter finish on the palate with average carbonation and smoothness.

bottle thanks to swalden 28. poured a clear yellow with a good lasting white head. aroma was skunky with a little citrus. actually my GF walked in and asked what that horrible smell was. flavor had some malt to it and a tiny citrus crisp. the best aspect of this beer was the appearance.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Picked up at Maruhn Getrnke in Darmstadt. Pours a pale golden yellow color with a fizzy white head. Aromas of hops, grass, and grains. Flavor is a kinda sweet, watery body, nice crisp hoppy/grain taste with a nice clean finish.

as (180) - Belgrade / Hamburg, - JUL 28, 2008
0,33 l can. Just as expected - a refreshing, but very boring lager. Herbal and citric hops aromas, low malt presence. Dry and sour aftertaste. Luckily, without much metallic aromas.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2008
Bottle from Jacobs Liquor near Denton, TX. Pours a clear gold with minimal lasting white fizzy head. Aroma of skunky grass....Flavor has a skunky hop taste as well and would have been a horrible beer if the crisp clean maltiness did not come through, actually, this is similar to a Heineken. Mouth feel is light with very high carbonation. Over all, it isnt a BAD beer.
