KEO is a Cypriotbeer, the only domestic brand in widespread national distribution. It is a light straw-colored lager with a thick head, and is sometimes compared to a pilsner in taste. The beer is brewed in Limassol, in Cyprus. The beer won the 1987 brewing industry world bottled lager competition Gold Medal.
Currently, its ingredients include malted barley, maize, and hops, but maize is a new addition.
In 2010 the appearance of the beer in a pornographic American film sparked a reaction by the largest shareholder in the company, the Orthodox Church of Cyprus.
