Postmortem Brew Review

Grainy malt with a slight hops bite. Some grassy flavors.
Nicely carbonated. 
Light bodied flavor. Refreshing and crisp.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Okay, get your mind outta' the gutter. This post is going to be short and sweet. I mean it.  No sophomoric jokes or bathroom humor. Yes, the beer has got a rather unique name. But by no means should we poke fun at - - - arghhh, I mean, make silly remarks about it.

I had just showed up at my favorite watering hole...there I go again...and they asked if I would like something new. So I said yes to an ice cold Vergina. And unlike other lagers, it does get more flavorful as it warms up.....oh no I didn't just say that! Okay, but if you can't score a Vergina at your local bar, just keep trying. You're probably trying too hard anyway.

I also found on the internet that they have Vergina Red. I wonder if it is only brewed monthly? And, there's a Vergina Weiss; a bit more wheat and yeast. Alright, now that's out of my system...

Vergina. Sometimes you just want one.
