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.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2008 Bottled at Elias Taverna, Stockholm. Clear bright golden, firm medium sized head. Fruity nose with some vague hay-like hops. Sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Distinctly salty and rather firm. Finishes with low-medium bitterness. A featureless but solid standard lager.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden with a bubbly white head that recedes quickly. Aroma is yeast, with some grassy notes and some slight hints of the hops. Fairly watery and bland. Unoffensive, but not very memorable. Would imagine on a hot summer day, you could easily finish of a 12 pack.

Bottle. Usual lager appearance. Golden colour with a thin white head. Soon fades. Hops, malt and sugar. honey texture. My first Greek beer, probs best drinking this in Greece in the sun.

gnoff (8746) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2008
(50 cl bottle at a restaurant in Köping, Sweden) Clear golden color, big white bubbly failry lasting head. Scent is sweet, malt, metallic, but mostly canned vegetables. Taste is pretty much just sweetened canned vegetables, it leaves a sweet a bit disgusting aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel, very low bitterness.
