Keo - Cyprus - 4/6/14

The low down: 
Keeping on with the cans, this here is the supposed haloumi of the beer world. Mostly because it is from Cyprus, as opposed to being an amazing coagulated milk protein product that puts all other coagulated milk protein products to shame. The only shame that came from drinking this, was my own.

It has a weird bitter sweet mouth feel that would be at home if you put equal parts salt and sugar in a teaspoon and stuck it in your mouth.

Importantly though, everyone should be able to order one, because its name represents the three most frequently used sounds common to the most widely spoken languages today; /k/, /e/, and /o/. I'm all for equity of access.

Packaging: 6/10
It's fairly run of the mill, and I don't hate it.
Refreshment: 3/10
Refreshment isn't something I would use to describe this.
Flavour 3/10
Lagerish, with some other subtle cereal flavours, that were left in the silo too long.
Alcohol Content: 5/10
4.6% Macro lager land strikes again.
Price: 5/10
$8.50 Incidentally the same price as 250 grams of Cypriot haloumi.
Total: 22/50

Not recommended. But if you had a meze plate with olives and haloumi and pickles, you could probably get away with drinking one or two, as long as it was really warm outside and the beer was really cold.
