mile (2887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminish head. Moderate malty - lightly grainy and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light bread. Body is medium, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel and light bread, light fruitiness - notes of honey. Finish is short to average, malty and sweetish, some caramel and light bread, faint hoppyness and light alcohol. Caramel sweetish "helles". Way too sweet for me. Reminds me of those East-European booze-lagers.

DwarfeD (849) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2014
30cl bottle at home. Clear golden with a medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite some bitterness combined with medium sweetness. Malts, grass and hops. A nice "German" brew.

blackisle (614) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
Sweet malty nose, bit caramel, bread, butter, some citrus, grassy hops, herbs, clear deep golden, rocky white head, good lacing, sweetbitter taste, soft carbonation, thick texture, feels medium body because you don’t taste the high alcohol, average carbonation, smooth bittersweet finish, very well-balanced beer.

vipinvelp (2076) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2013
Clear dark yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is seriously malty. Taste is malty and quite some carbon gas. Aftertaste is short. Think this beer might taste better when joined with some spicy Indonesion food. (Velp 201307)

Bottle at home, done from memory, rating is just for my own. I will edit if I drink it again, don’t know what to write here, most Alfa beers are great but this beer was just meh...

thanatosti (881) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2013
30 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Old yellow with a thin quickly diminishing white head. Malty aroma. Fairly sweet and a bit thin mouthfeel. Short medium bitter aftertaste. I like the normal Alfa pilsener better to be honest, this one is too sweet for me.
