Imported from old beer-rating-app. I had this beer draught during my greece holidays on a small island near Rhodos. Ok It had about 40 degrees Celsius and I was very thirsty after a longer boat trip, but I remember it as extremely drinkable and refreshing. Much better as the other greek beers I have tasted, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is an example of a beer designed perfectly for its environment - a hot Athens evening. Drinkers experiencing the beer in damp or colder countries- beware, it is not recommended for these places as most of the refreshing and cooling qualities will be lost. This is an absolutely delicious and refreshing beer popular among local Greeks and German/Dutch tourists. The beer manages to quench thirst as well as refresh your taste buds with hints of apple and hops. One of the best pale lagers around and real pleasure giver in a hot climate.

A very good Greek lager. Well-carbonated. Grassy and hoppy taste. A real pleasure to drink on a hot summer day.

cheap (5578) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2013
from a green bottle. Had that aged noble hops aroma, you know a little like cabbage. Looks quite friendly yellah in my mug. good fresh initial flavors of amicable lager. not bad, pretty friendly. easy. enjoyable overall beer experiences. no bad feelings on the finish. Things are getting better around here. Just barely enough hop presence to minimize ill hop effects. Seriously, this is one good crisp pale lager.

Can shared at the Siren event at Craft Clerkenwell. Proper pale lager. Nice corn, cereal, a bit of hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Good sugary pale malts to finish. Classic. Nicely done, Greece.

Lukaduke (3106) - Gray, Maine, USA - APR 25, 2014
Nice pale straw color finger of fizzy white foam... lots of carbonation. Bready nose with a hint of grass and sweet corn. Palate is light refreshing and clean with a nice balance of bitter spice and sweet light malt. Crushable.
