Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2006
Bottle, BB 5.5.06. Bright golden pour with a nice initial 1" white head. Nose of light fruits, breadiness, and a hint of lighter fruit/citrus. Flavors of wheat/straw, citrus, bread, and some metal at the backend. Light-bodied, but never felt watery... decent feel to it. Overall easy-drinkin’ and fairly solid.

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 that’s 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 that’s 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.

humlelala (1288) - 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.

chinchill (4115) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2015
330 ml can BB dated 11/2015. At Taverna Mermaid (closed at the time) at the Sweetwater Beach in southern Crete. Pale golden body with a decent head. Rather high carbonation. Only mildly bitter but this builds into the aftertaste. O: about average for style.
