Mythos will be familiar to anyone that has had a summer holiday on the Greek Islands as it is the lager that is served in the majority of beachfront bars and Greek tavernas. Having spent summers in Kos and Crete, I have knocked back my fair share of this easy drinking Greek brew. Hopefully the Mythos makes a suitable replacement in my Albanian line-up.
Finding a bottle of Mythos prove fairly difficult but in the end I managed to source from Beer Cafe Glasgow for £3.95
The Mythos pours with a golden yellow colour and a foamy head. Average carbonation helps the lager look appealing in the glass and as a result the head hangs around for the duration of the drink. Clean barley and mild hops are easy to identify whilst a sweet malt aroma can also be detected. The Mythos tastes crisp with a little bite from the hops but nothing too complex, and as generic country beers go the Mythos is a very easy drinking beer. Like most holiday beers, Mythos offers crisp, cold refreshment with little fuss. Does that make it a poor choice? I don't think so, it's better than the mass produced beers available, in the UK in my honest opinion, and definitely a beer that I would source in the future.
