500 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Athens, GR. BB 12-09-15. 5.8%

Clear red-amber body with a fine, creamy, bone-colored head; Excellent lacing but could have more clarity.

Medium body and medium, crisp carbonation.
Mild aroma.

Flavor: Moderate level of malt with a touch more spicy hops than expected. This balance works well and makes the beer more interesting and dynamic.

O: Probably one of the better readily available (supermarket) beers here in Athens.

Natives insisted I try the Vergina beer. Half the sixer had this beer also, which is a relief. This is a much better beverage. Poured a hazy amber with a decent, 1 1/2 finger head. The head left small rings of beads and lace on the glass. Smelled a little sweet and wine like. The bittering smell comes more from spice than it does from any hop. Tasted vinegary and sweet. Hey, maybe old wine was used in this? It seems possible. Slightly sour aftertaste. However, the texture is pretty good. Thick and creamy. That alone brings the drinkability up a full point. If your ever in Northern Africa, and the natives insist you try Vergina, get the mixed sixer so you can also have this beer.
