COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A pale straw lager with a thick lacing white head. A rather chalky corn adjunct aroma, with light boiled vegetables. In mouth, an unpleasant chalky lager with loads of solvent notes, off flavours, some metallic hops, not very good. Bought at Bishop’s Cellar, Oct. 2009.

Very standard pale ale. Lots of taste of corn and not much else. Very comparable to other American pales like rolling rock. *I see it is made by heineken which makes sense because this is what i thought it tasted like but was trying to relate it to American Pales...is heineken considered american these days?

Bottle. Sour barley malt aroma. Pale yellow color with small head. Sweet-sour barley malt flavor with light hops finish. Average pale lager.

fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2010
Pours pale gold with a 1 finger creamy white head that has good retention. Aroma is corn, grass, toasted cereal grain, skunk and some sweet straw. Flavor is very watery... an overtone of mineral water and metal over the whole thing with some corn, cereal grain, grass and skunk coming and going as they please. Palate is light bodied with an alkaline dryness throughout and a light carbonation. Not the worst pale lager in the world, but definitely not worth it.

I knew what this piss was gonna taste like before I even opened the bottle. Corn, malt and stank. Just plain awful.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2010
11.2 Fl. oz. Bottle. Pours a clear goldenish body with some small sediment floaties and a thing fizzy white head. Aroma is grassy, grainy, a bit skunked overall weak, almost like a even weaker Heineken. Flavor is much of the same with some decent malty notes and light sweetness. Thin bodied. Not horrible actually.

heemer77 (5294) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Pale gold yellow body with a thin white head. A strong veggie nose of celery and carrots. There is also a note of earhy potatoes and white bread. The taste is celery with a black pepper note at the finish. There is also a copper hint. A little strong in the vegetable notes.

Stereotypical lager taste with little to no flavor, more like chewing on some hay.

Skinnyviking (8694) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2009
Can. Clear golden body. High fluffy lasting white head. Aroma: A joke, hardly existing. Weak watery malt flavor. Low carbonation short aftertaste. Get your tick and forget it!
