Brew Review-Hillas Lager
During my most recent visit to Chicago I had the pleasure to visit the Parthenon in Greek Town. And when in Greece, act like a Grecian… or however that saying goes.
So, I got a Hillas lager to go with my meal. Imported from Greece, it should go perfectly with a Greek meal, right?
Well, the Hillas was basically a hoppier Miller Lite. It was pale yellow, and crystal clear. It had a mild floral hop aroma (which set it apart from the Miller Lite). The flavor was crisp and mild with a slightly bitter floral hop finish.
If I was out in the sun in Athens, it would probably be perfect. But, I was inside on a cold winter day, so it didn’t really fit the bill.
The Saganaki and lamb loin, however, made up for the flavor that the Hillas lacked.
