|Athenian Brewery, Marathon Greek Lager (Greece) |
This lager pours a medium, slightly dull gold with a thinnish white head. The nose suggests some creamy sweetness, with a slightly starchy quality and some background fruitiness. On the palate this is indeed rather sweet, with no discernible hop presence, though a bit of lemony tang lifts the finish slightly. Pretty standard stuff. 5.0% ABV, 33cl, ?0.99, Beersofeurope, Pierhead.
|Mythos, Hellenic Lager (Greece) |
This light golden-coloured lager has a pleasantly citrus note on the nose, and a little hint of honey, as well as a nice hoppy freshness. On the palate it is quite creamy textured, and is enjoyable, if a touch unexciting. It is a smooth and not too fizzy style, which would suit spicy food perhaps. 5.0% ABV, 33cl, ?1.89, Peckhams, Pierhead, Pierhead, Surf4beer.
