The first Greek beer to be awarded a silver European Beer Star (2014).

Edgy and refreshing, with a perfect mouthfeel, this balanced and exceptionally full-bodied Pilsner tantalizes the taste buds and leaves you wanting more. The liquid quintessence of Aegean island living and Cycladic magic in a bottle.

NISSOS Pilsner pours crystal clear with a rich golden color, a spicy, fragrant, herbal-citrusy aroma and subtle malt flavors, rounding off with a pleasant hoppiness at the finish. 12

500 ml bottle with interesting story on a nicely designed label. Pours clear amber with nice white head that keeps well. Nice lacing. Aroma has a good balance of bready grain and more than one hops, and also citrucy and floral undertones. Tastes a good balance of sweetness and hop bitterness. A full bodied beer with medium carbonation, light texture with a crisp and interesting finish. A very good Greek pilsner from an island microbrewery. I will certainly enjoy it again at Tinos or Syros...and pair it with Greek food.

Michael27 (1502) - Berlin, GERMANY - FEB 28, 2017
Aus der Flasche getrunken (Supermarktkauf in Athen). Helles Amber im Glas. Der Schaum ist schnell weg. Ziemlich enttuschend. Kaum Geschmacksrichtung zu erkennen.

BlackHaddock (6897) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2016
33cl bottle on 7th Oct 2016 (BBD 6th May 2017), poured into a tall glass in a holiday studio in Corfu: bought at a local supermarket in the resort of Ipsos. Deep old gold in colour, off-white head. Malty in nature and fairly sweet for a Pilsner, some bitterness in the finish: decent and a good start to my two weeks on Corfu trying to find new beers.

500 ml bottle, from a supermarket in Rhodos. ABV is 5%. Golden colour, slightly hazy. Moderate white head, nice lacing. Very moderate grainy aroma. The flavour is moderately malty but also surprisingly fruity, medium dry. Moderate hops in the finish. Very drinkable.
