12oz bottle - Looks like ginger ale. Absolutely stunningly clear yellow body. Tons of bubbles coating the inside of the glass. No appreciable head. Aroma of corn. Flavor actually reminds me of a Pilsner Urquel that’s seen its better days. Bit of a funky aftertaste on the palate. Has a 09/09/12 expiration date so don’t know how much more fresh this could be short of sitting at a cafe in Athens.

Not an actual Greek beer per se. This country has no recent brewing history, their oldest brewery this one is only like 2 years old if that. the company that is behind this is a Greek importer in Chicago. Overall it isn’t bad, I had it with a really spicy bowl of chili, it turned out to be quite fruity and unoffensive. Jsut your standard EPL.

(bottle 7/12/11 at Jake & Tellys). Clear gold color. Medium off white head. Sweet malt aroma. Flavor of the same, with light grain. Avg duration. Light lasting grainy finish. Thin texture. Soft to moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

12oz bottle at a greek place. Light in color and aroma. Not much in the flavor department either. Some light citrus but mostly malt and adjuct flavor. Another attempt to make Americans happy.

perhaps passable in a scorching Mediterranian heat, Hillas falls short in the US, coming across as a typical adjunt-ridden Pils imitation. Corny with no hops character, this br ew misses the mark completely.

Atom (2594) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2011
12oz bottle pours clear golden with large white head. Aroma of malt and grass. Taste starts out rather nicely with malts, grains and caramel but on an offensive mineral bitterness. Pretty good with Avgolemono Chicken Soup.

bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle. Light golden beer with an off-white head. Mineral and light grass aroma. Sweet malt flavor with light caramel and light citrus. Medium bodied. Sweet malt and light caramel lingers.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light golden with a medium white head. Aroma and flavor are quite sweet, a murky maltiness, some fruity esters, some corn and graininess, almost no hops. Reminded me of too many bad Ukrainian and Russian beers I’ve had. Gets particularly unpleasant as it warms. Not truly awful ... but not good.

cubs (10740) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2010
330 mL bottle. Light pale yellow appearance with a frothy white head. Sweet pale malts in the nose. Fairly sweet and fairly bitter bland pale lager. Not that great. Actually pretty gross

1.5
BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 4, 2010
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy and particulate gold with a small, fizzy white head, low retention with flat head. Aroma is heavy malt (straw, meal), light hops (earthy), light esters (fruity) with notes of peaches. Flavor is heavy malt (straw, meal, bread), light hops (earthy), light esters (fruity) with notes of peaches. Light body, low creaminess and warmth, medium carbonation and a dry finish.
