Alfa Hellenic Beer is a lager beer, with 5% alcohol content with it’s authentic Greek name and origin, that make it more familiar to Greeks and non-Greeks around the world. It is refreshing, easy to drink and brings to ones memory the authentic taste of Greece! Alfa’s unique light gold color and rich foam is the ultimate pleasure-maker. It is made of high quality natural ingredients (water, barley malt, hops and yeast) and its packaging is distinctive, with the bottle being a more modern version of the original Alfa bottle.

Blonde beer with mediocre taste. Nice colour, light grain flavor. Not very good to me though.

Draught. Pours clear yellow, with decent and durable white head, with faint lacing. Sweet hops on the nose, and zesty on the palate. Pleasant enough beer.

Derek881 (1187) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2008
A decent beer I had from the large bottle in a restaurant beneath the Parthenon in Athens. The beer had a grainy hop aroma with a bith of barley malt and maybe some corn and floral tones. A clear gold color with a medium-sized foamy white head. The taste was a mostly full bitter effect, with the grainy charateristic and a bit of sourness. Slightly rougher bitter finish on the palate with average carbonation and smoothness.

bottle thanks to swalden 28. poured a clear yellow with a good lasting white head. aroma was skunky with a little citrus. actually my GF walked in and asked what that horrible smell was. flavor had some malt to it and a tiny citrus crisp. the best aspect of this beer was the appearance.
