(Bottle 50 cl) The writing in Greek on the label of my original version reads something pretty similar to "Beptina". Anyways, pilsener golden, small white head. Malty nose. Light malty body, some malt-sweetness - and then nothing. OK standard lager. 180705

Bottle poured yellow with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and a sharp spice kick. Flavor is malt, spice and grain with a bit of a metalic finish

UPDATED: FEB 12, 2009 This is propably the best lager we have here. It resembles the taste of some german lagers that Iíve tried. Slightly sweet, nice after taste. And for the records Vergina is a part of Northern Greece :) lol

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2005 Finally the notorious Vergina beer, which looks totally different in the greek alphabet. Just okay, but again, wheatish tasting, with a bitter bite, refreshing. But celebrations about finally arriving at Corfu (drank this on the Igomentisa to Corfu ferry), made it merrier.

Bottled. Tried this because I wanted a Greek beer in a Greek restaurant. Tried to speak Greek with the manager -- he said I knew more Greek than he did. A big, long-lasting, off-white head on a tan-amber beer. Smell of malt with a note of hops. Not much else here. Taste is slightly sweet, almost sticky -- much rounder than I was expecting from a lager. Lots of carbonation. An okay beer -- donít go across town to get one, but if you happen to be in a Greek restaurant, give one a try.

iím not going to lie, but i bought this because of the name. not that bad, though. it has an unoffensive, slightly buttery bready/grain flavor with a sprinkle of citrus.

The funniest part about this beer was having the cashier call for a price check over the intercom. Even she had to laugh. Pours a very pale yellow with a thin white head. Has an earthy mushroom and corn aroma. There is also some bread. The flavor is celery with a little colby cheese. There is also a hint of coffee and honey.

UPDATED: APR 19, 2008 The first few times I had this beer I was eating at my Favorite Greek restaurant and well the food is so good I think it made this Beer a 20. Yet when I had this beer by it self it was ok but nothing special.

It turns out that I am immature and filthy-minded enough to buy a beer just because it almost has a funny name - God knows thereís really little else to recommend it appearance-wise. The label looks real cheap and frankly Greek beer doesnít have the best reputation. Despite all this itís actually quite a nice beer. It probably has enough malt character to warrant classification as a Helles, really. Nice spaghetti, biscuity, German-style maltiness in the aroma. More light biscuity fresh malt flavour with only enough hop to balance. Pretty light-bodied but it works well. Simple but really drinkable, though even VB tastes good after playing bball.

Might be my favorite Greek brew. Nice effervesence, beading goes on throughout, tickles the tongue and throat, and soon itís gone and you need another one, if only to extinguish the flames on your waiterís head as his thick black hair catches fire while serving saganaki to the table of tourists from Indiana next to you.
