Pretty so so ish. Not much better than a big name US lager. A little interesting, though.

330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves a few specks of lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and hops. Taste is light malt sweetness and light hop bitterness. Light body and light carbonation. A decent brew for the style, but still nothing special.

Hmmm, just as I expected. Gold pour. White head. Skunky aroma with pale malt and hop profile. Flavor is much the same. I dont even think this would go well with much of anything.

Pours golden to light amber with white head that quickly dissipates. Nose has a suggestion of honey, and is otherwise faint. Palate has honeyed malt taste, light hops, and a short finish. Slight herbal/vegetal like quality. Very easy drinking, better than domestic adjunct lagers.

Had this beer a couple years ago, so I’m going off memory. It was an unusual find, so I had to try it. It was a little on the malty side, but almost like a German beer in flavor. Some corn and grassy hops, but light with enough flavor to be refreshing.

330 mL. Found this at European Street Cafe in Jacksonville, FL. Pours a clear golden with a decent white head that dwindles down quickly. Aromas of sweet corn, fresh grass, and cereal. No lacing. Tastes like sweet corn bread. Clean, bland finish. This is a decent pale lager that I am not going to complain about. Fun to drink, not offensive, and hey! it’s Greek.

11 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold with a moderate white head that faded to a sloppy, uneven white film after the first sip and left zero lace. Aroma of stale air, like being in an old attic, along with some malt and a bit of corn syrup sweetness. Thankfully, there was no staleness in the flavor, which was basically some mild sweet malt. No bitterness to speak of at the finish. Fairly smooth on the palate. This beer probably would have faired better with me if not for the off-putting aroma.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2008
Bottle. Pours a gold with an initial 2 finger snow white head that faded fast into a soap scum topper. Nose is sweet malt and grassy hops. Taste is pretty the same. Lighter mouth feel. Meh, not any worse than a lot of Latin beers.

mmm, so i’m rating pale lagers again--oh, boy: this one has that familiar egg whiteness to it that never fairs well with my palate; somewhat oily, some spice actually, but not great; meh.

Not all that interesting...this is a basic lager, slightly better than a typical American lager. There was some residual sweetness to this beer, which gave it most of its flavor and very low hopiness if any. Not bad for a session lager but nothing interesting at all with this beer.

BeerGestapo (754) - Mt.Joy, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2008
Brewed in Greece !! Pours a golden yellow color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of corn, malts, and a hint of citrus. The taste is of sweet corn but not much else. The mouthfeel is very watery that ends with a slightly dry finish. This pale lager is boring, but the label is kind of cool.
