Another week, another lager – this time it’s a popular one from Greece.
At least next week it’s a witbier.
Hello, this is DrinksAhoy and this… is Beverage Guide Express.
In this episode, we’re covering Mythos.
Mythos, as you might surmise from its name, is a Greek beer – a European Pale Lager in style.
Unremarkable, not particlarly flavourful – but a drinkable style nonetheless.
Alcohol content is typical for such a lager, at 4.7 percent.
The beer is brewed at the Mythos Breweries, based in Sindos, Greece.
Mythos was introduced in 1997, brewed by the then-called Northern Greece Brewery: the drink proved so popular that in 2001 they would change their name to reflect their primary brand.
Since 2008, Mythos became part of the Carlsberg group – and as such they produce a large number of big brands under license – Carlsberg, Kaiser, Corona, Grimbergen, Kilkenny and Kronenbourg.
Mythos pours a typical amber with a lively head that diminishes fairly rapidly.
Its aroma is slightly sweet, with a hint of grasses – the same can be said of the initial taste: a little sweet, with a mild touch of citrus.
The beer is consistent in body throughout the glass – a mild, pleasant, but insipid experience, with only mild bitterness in the aftertaste.
It is eminently drinkable, however – despite lacking in the character department.
Although inoffensive, and a mite boring: This mythical beer – boasts legendary refreshment.
Thanks for watching, and join me next time for a rare sight: an American witbier.
