Mythos Helenic Lager Beer - Greece 14-3-11

The Low Down:
Unlike anything remotely Greek I have ever encountered before, this beer was inoffensive and uninteresting. Greek food is interesting. Greek labourers are offensive. This beer is about as "down the middle" as could be.

Largerish, watery, a brief flavour of hops, a tiny bit of malt, and then some fizz to finish on. The name is the most impressive part. 

Not to say it's a bad beer, it is in fact a good beer. It's a safe beer as anyone could drink it. What I'm saying is, I think this beer is not adventurous in anyway.





Packaging: 6/10
The concept of Lord Zeus and the gods in a beer gains this beer some ground.
Refreshment: 6/10
Averagely refreshing and easy to drink.
Flavour 4/10:
There is little in the way of flavour. tastes like whats in the bottle.
Alcohol Content: 4/10
4.7%. Once again, quite average.
Price: 5/10
$3.60. Considering it's so generic, the price seems about what you would expect.
Total: 25/50



Conclusion:
A generic beer that had exactly 50% of the points I could award. surprising? Not really. This is a good beer for drinking when you feel the need to have something exactly down the middle. If you buy it for a group of friends, no one will hate it. But no-one will love it either.
Cheers.
