Marathon - The Greek Lager Beer

I'm not sure what I was expecting when I picked this beer up. It's the first Greek beer I've had, but it is a very typical European lager - not much different from Heineken, Peroni, or Beck's. It's made by the Athenian Brewery, which is owned by Heineken. It has a slightly spicy flavor, almost minty, then finishes with a typical noble hop character. It poured a golden yellow color with a short-lived white head. Nothing exciting here.
