Mythos Hellenic Lager
I’ve never reviewed any of the Greek beers at Disney?? How is that possible? Such a disgrace to my heritage.
While at Kouzzina on my last trip, I had the option of Mythos or Alpha and this time around I chose the Mythos.
Now I will preface this by saying that my Greek people are NOT known for beer brewing. Ouzo or wine? Oh you’ll find some beauties. But beer? Hmmm…not so much.
A little Mythos history… Mythos Brewery is the 2nd largest in Greece, and is actually owned by Carlsberg. You know…the beer from Denmark that’s sold in Norway? Yeah, that one.
It’s a light colored lager that didn’t blow me away. It was refreshing and I could definitely see myself sipping on a Mythos on a warm night while watching the sunset in Santorini….and chasing it with ouzo. The first sniff of it though was slightly off-putting. It did smell slightly skunked but I’ve had this beer before so I knew it’s how it’s supposed to smell. Weird, I know. Faint bitter taste throughout the whole beer.
So this isn’t the best beer you will ever have, probably not even average. But I think it’s worth a sip. Am I biased because it’s Greek? Probably. Next time I’m at Kouzzina I’ll review Alpha instead. I do like Alpha slightly better.
