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.

madsberg (10184) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2005
Can enjoyed cold in 27 C on Rhodes: Golden coloured. Clear. Dense white head. Really dosn’t have much to say about this beer. Find it quite shitty with nothing special to offer tastebuds or palate. Is very sweet and grainy. Shitty beer.

Malty, bit skunky nose with some grains. Clear, golden coloured with a thin head, doesn’t last. Taste is swet, malty, bit grainy and watery. Way too sweet.

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 Quite light beer, with sweet taste and large white head. One of the average lagers we have here but it’s drinkable if it is very chilled (and with the appropriate food :) )

Green bottle poured a golden yellow with a small white head and light lacing. Aroma is sweet, corn and grass. Flavor is sweet malt with a smooth finish. Not to bad.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 The Athenian Brewery makes four beers, and all of them are pale lagers. Go figure. Anyways... this one is yellow with slow carbonation and a barely existing head that actually does some decent lacing. The aroma is grainy and sweet, belying the flavor which is much subtler in its malty sweetness with some mild hop bitterness in the finish. Now available in liquor stores, I’m sure this will show up in the local Greek restaurants... which is where I will drink it.

Hombre.......... cuesta menos de 40 cts de € no esperareis que sea una buena cerveza. Aunque tiene la cosa de ser griega. No creo que mucha gente (que no sea griega) tenga una cerveza de alli.

Alfa seems to have recently become available in the US for the first time. It’s surprisingly bitter, as I was expecting a bland international lager. I didn’t find it sweet at all, but rather crisp and dry, but above all, fairly bitter.
