In Greece there are 4 Grand Breweries that brew for massive consumption. Generally these beers are not something special... or to be more clear ...these beers are almost water. So thatís the reason you could find them cheap. Vergina premium lager is for me the best of all these beers. An average lager but not water.

Can@Crete. Pale golden color, frothy white head. Bland malty aroma. Surprisingly hoppy flavor with a bitter finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Reminds me of Perroni. Sessionable.

330 ml bottle BB 060608. Cap had the BEPΓINA, but the bottle had Vergina. Golden color with a filmy white head. Fresh floral/grassy hop aromas. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor seems rather citrus hop over pale malt. A little grassiness is noticeable in the finish. Lemongrass hop? Certainly rather different type of lager. Note from the web: BEPΓINA means Vergina, and thatís a small town in Macedonia. More: The Vergina Sun, Star of Vergina or Argead Star is the name given to a symbol of a stylised star or sun with sixteen rays. It was unearthed in 1977 during archaeological excavations in Vergina, in the northern Greek province of Macedonia, by Professor Manolis Andronikos. He discovered it on a golden larnax in the tombs of the kings of the ancient kingdom of Macedon.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Standard 330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Uninteresting pale lager. Itís drinkable, and has some hop finish which puts it into the East Europe trend rather than the global.

humlelala (984) - DENMARK - SEP 7, 2013
(33 cl can from minimarket in Parga; BBD: January 5th 2014) Pours a clear, pale golden with plenty of white head and lively carbonation. Decent retention and some lace. Aroma is slightly hoppy with some dry, grassy notes and a hint of grainy malt. This is probably better when fresh. Oily texture, light body and a slightly dry, grassy finish. Flavour largely follows the nose with a little sweetness thrown in for decent balance.
