Scored a bottle of this while I was in Rhodes. I guess there is their flagship beer. Hazy blonde, thin head. Mild, malty aroma. Crisp and slightly fruity. Nothing to go nuts over.

500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head and moderate carbonation. Malty and grassy aroma with a hint of hay. Malty and slightly sweet taste with hints of corn. Not bad, but nothing special.

Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Drukket hjemme 20 Aug 12. Lys gylden. Bra skum som stabiliserer seg lavt. Søt fruktig aroma. Smaken er malt med innslag av frukt. Litt i søteste laget - men bra.

Senka (1097) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2012
50cl bottle. Crete. Citrus aroma, no carbonation for pale lager. Cereal malt, a bit licorice/ ouzo taste. Pale, clear with no head. Lightly bitter. Not my kind of brew. Not so dull for pale lager, drinkable, but I would not want to have more than 1 in a row.

jacobwennbom (356) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2008
Pale golden in color. Very easy on the nose. First impression when drinking is how thin it is. A bit watery, low on both malty hoppy flavours, thin head. No foul tastes but really nothing going for it either. Since I’ve had the Craft Pilsener the day before I was a bit disapointed.

MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2009
Bottle, 5%. Hazy golden colour. Very small white head. The flavour is OK malty, has a faint hint of grain. Almost clean, but tastes like a macro lager.

Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 13, 2011
Pale golden in colour with a samll quickly fading head. Nose shows bready malt, honey, cereal and faint floral hops. Similar flavours, lots of cardboard and cereal. Carbonation is pretty high, body feels a bit watery.

In bottle from carrefour in Rhodes; low to medium body, not very hoppy at all. At first I was a little disappointed but overall it was an easy drinking beer on a nice hot beach day. As well, given the fact it was under $1E, not a bad value

330ml bottle (Stockman, Tallinn) - thanks for the gen, SaintMatty!
Pale amber, brief head. Fairly decent grainy and slightly husky aroma, some of the dryness which foretells paperiness, perhaps. Crisp carbonation, slightly thin palate. Very dull lagery taste, minuscule hint of ginger in one of the sips, but no real malty body, and only ghosts of hops. Pretty clean taste - certainly uncontaminated by beeriness.
