    Pale yellow with medium off white head. Taste is nothing special. Nice to have tried.Grre Much better beer is out there. Greeks aren't known for producing great beer and this beer reinforces it.

    Needed to look up and see if Hillas was Greek for Bud Light, to no avail. Gold, clear, very little head, corn, blah. I suppose had I been out in the sun and there wasn't any water around...

    It pours a light and bubbly yellow with a thick and frothy white head and not much residual lacing. A creamy aroma of barley malts, light hops, lemon and citrus, light bitterness, and mild spiciness. The mouthfeel is smooth and rather rich. Flavors of barley malts, hops, lemon and citrus, bitterness, and spiciness. About an average lager ..

    The beer pours our a dirty dishwater greyish/yellow with a scant 1/2" thick off-whte head. Aroma is a bit sour-like citrus (lemony I suppose), and a touch of corn-like sweetness. Flavor had some more of the light lemon notes, abd sweet creamed corn. Suprisingly light and refreshing. Clean finish.

    This is good for simple refreshment. Gold color. I get some straw & rice, hint of flowery hops...... sweet nutty finish. well thats pushing it, its clean but too clean, aftertaste is hiding. Still a good and quenching and a brisk mouthfeel.

    This pale lager pours a light orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is grainy, cardboard, wet socks and tape. A medium to light bodied pale lager. Malts are cereal and sweet. Lots of hay and lemongrass. Cardboardy and watery. Tastes better than it smells. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

    A pleasant little beer, for a pleasant little Friday afterwork tipple... :)

    *Very* pale and tame looking, this one. "Head? Nah senior, vee don't need no stickin' head...", apparently. Um, sorry..., guess I should use Greek references, instead of Mexican, eh?

    But the comparison is not without some merit, actually. This does indeed remind me of one of my more preferred Mexican cervezas: Tecate.

    And along those same lines, this does kill a thirst on a warm SoCal afternoon. Very easy to down.

    Really quite light, but with enough character to at least have something to say in passing from the glass to your gut. No off flavors to speak of. Aroma is rather decent too.

    A light-and-easy throwaway of a beer, which I could see getting a bucketfull for an afternoon picnic along the water. Decent starter beer, before moving onto to the main course later on.

    A very solid European lager, and in a brown bottle. Very smart avoiding the standard green bottle that makes for an oxidized, and therefore skunky, product. Hillas pours a tawny golden color, with a nice head and a little lacing. Tastes clean and crisp, goes down well. Makes you want another. I would go back for this again if it were readily available in my area.
