The national beer of Greece eh? I think they deserve a lot better than this. Grainy malt is the flavour of the day, and sadly that is not a flavour I enjoy.

Pours a rich golden colour with slight amber in it. The head was average size, white colour, average retention and left minimal lace. Carbonation is only coming from 2-3 spots at the bottom of the glass. Grainy malt nose with a tad of hop. Creamy and sticky mouthfeel. The taste is a mix of grass and grains. Quite different, but nothing outstanding.

Bottle form Lubière: Poured a deep golden color ale with a medium foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma of sweet and floral malt is quite interesting. Taste is also sweet but the floral and grassy feel is what rally kept me interested in this beer. Body is light and it does lack complexity but let’s just say that I have seen worse pale lager then this one.

A little better then average college swill but not much. Not alot to this beer. No head to speak of, or even a zing of carbination. Very flat, with a little bit of hops in the palate.

#2 Review by pootz from between Calgary and Waterloo, Canada
Score: 2.3 | Aroma 5 | Appearance 4 | Mouthfeel 4 | Flavor 5 | Overall 5 |
Bottled: Poured a bright yellow-gold color with a small rocky white cap that reduces quickly to a small ring. Almost no lace on the glass. Heavily carbonated (large bubbles cling to the sides of the glass). Weak nose to this one....light sweet dextrin smells, some grain husk and some vegetal notes...nothing there to indicate an all malt Dortmunder helles. Light body, fluid mouth feel. Up front the body is characterized by spritzy carbonation, insufficent malt spine and over bearing grassy hops ( where's the herbal/lemony Halertaus we expect in a helles?)...the weak malting makes the adjuct cereals obvious and easily detected in the fast, dry finish and sweet dextrose after taste (corn/rice?). Some semblence of cold lagering is evident as this brew tastes slightly better and smoother as it warms and imparts more malt aroma. I believe the Muskoka Brewer either got brewing franchise or bought the rights to the FIX label which was once a Dortmunder helles and was the national mega brew of Greece. This beer is neither...just typical fizzy yellow adjunct lager like the 300 brands that diluge the macro lager market...indistinct, slightly vegetal and watery. I’m a helles lager junkie but I won’t be back for more of this.

Had this at my old stomping grounds "The Time Zone". Thanks Jerry. The beer has a very nice deep gold colour, almost amberish, but has a very thin head. the aroma is very bready. unfortunatley the taste is little something to be desired.
