drpimento (3639) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 17, 2016
One of the better common World beers. The head was no doubt a result of forming agents. Aroma is what grain. Flavor is some malt and wet grain, carbonic Tang, sweet with a little bitter. Not much sign of hops. Body is ok. Guess it would do in a... Fix. Sorry couldn’t resist.

blackisle (2585) - Amsterdam IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2017 Bottle 33cl. as Fix 1864 Spezial, poured into a lager glass, from local AB supermarket, Nafplio. Clear pale to medium amber, small foamy white to off-white head, mostly diminishing, minimal lacing; aroma sweet malts, grain, caramel, light cereals; taste light heavy sweet, slightly bitter, malty, caramel, grainy; becomes slightly more sweetbitter in the aftertaste; medium body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation; decent Vienna-style beer. Rated 11/10/16. By the way: this one is completely different from its American namesake.
Bottle 33cl. (from Grieksewijnen.com), as Fix Hellas. Clear medium golden, small fizzy white head, sizzles down quickly, no lacing; light sweet malty nose, grain, straw, vegetables; taste light sweet, slightly bitter; light body, watery to oily texture, soft carbonation, afteaste light dry bittersweet; middle-of-the-road lager. Rating: 7/16/2015 2.4.
Combining Fix Hellas and Fix 1864 Spezial as the same beer is a strange thing, imo two rather different beers.

rumore (533) - Rimini, ITALY - OCT 14, 2016
From bottle, at To Steki, in Bologna, Italy. Color is a shining blonde, with low foam. Aroma is ready, while taste is standard lager. No significant palate.

Taboada (1347) - Compostela (Galiza), - OCT 14, 2016
330 mml bottle tasted on the 2/10/2016. Light yellow colour with a small white head. Aroma of grain, yeast and grass. Taste is grainy and watery. Light and watery aftertaste. Next one please!

2014 Greek Beer journal notes - skuked to crap. Atrocious grainy and skunk aroma with alight bitterness, crisp note. Not refreshing beyond being a liquid.

AWS9 (704) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle. Boring pale pour, with fizzyness - ugh. Some sugariness. Barely any hops of which to speak... Washing liquid finish. Blech.

ALLOVATE (3015) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2016
A very attractive, shimmering, golden amber body holds aloft a thin and compact white crown for the length. Salty and quite grainy, sweet and cereal-like is the nose with a hint of chaff, palest honey and dried mown grass. Light on for flavour though I did try it super chilled from the bottlo’. Fills out as it warms. Sweet, toasted and biscuity malt upfront and across the mid-palate. Quite gritty and dry in back with a crisp, lightly grassy hop finish. Peppery, almost minty linger. Light bodied with racy, sprightly carbonation. Slightly soapy feel but nothing unclean here. Very easy drinking. Balanced between sweet malt and dry grain and hop. Can’t say too many negatives with this. Quite good to ’go against the grain!’ (33cL, BB 24/11/16, Cellarbrations Lynwood)

Tide (3895) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Draught at restaurant. Pale golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, a bit of toast, malts and grass. Bitter finish with citrus, malts, a bit of toast and grass. Basic bulk lager.

markschiedon (682) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 14, 2016
Drinking from a 33 cl bottle. In the aroma malt. The clear golden beer has a medium white head. In the taste grains, malt. Low carbonated.

Alengrin (5369) - BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2016
Classic Greek pale lager, in existence from 1864 till the eighties and then resurrected in 2000. Cobweb-lacing, snow white, medium sized head, clear ’old gold’ colour. Aroma shows signs of oxidation (older bottle!), next to impressions of dry breakfast cereals, soggy chicken grain, dried grass, some vague iron, bread crust. Typical pale lager grain sweetish flavor, cereally, thin body with fizzy carbonation, light grassy hop bitterish touch in the finish but otherwise remaining thin and grainy. Fairly neutral overall, a tad too old, very stereotypical.
