Marathon Beer


The bottled Marathon beer from Athinian Brewery in Athens, Greece delivers just the flavors you would expect from a complementary lager beer served with a Greek meal. The clear golden lager offers a slightly sweet pale malt flavor accompanied by a moderate hop bitterness. The smooth mouthfeel and medium body make it a good match for most Greek salads and spicy lamb dishes served at popular Greek restaurants. At 5% alcohol by volume, this beer makes an impression but still leaves room for full-flavored dishes from the kitchen. Proclaimed on the bottle's label as "The Greek Lager Beer", this brew offers a respectable rendition of this region's approach to lager beers, even with the extensive influence of European conglomerates' dictates and influence on the Grecian brewing scene.
