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: JUL 3, 2008 Big thanks to Stithorn for bringing this beer back from Greece for me! Thanks. Can. Pours a clear gold with a medium, but quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is mostly skunk, with some light vegetable and hops notes. The taste is a fairly sweet malt, some honey and maybe some hops. Not really that bad, just another Pale Lager, but my first Greek rating.

Strong hoppy aroma. Quite a bitter taste but certainly full flavoured for a lager. It is neither bland nor watery.

MaltOMeal (1093) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2008
bottle. Poured a clear, very light amber with a thin white head. Typical lager nose with a bit of grassiness. Taste was fairly standard for a lager with some grass although it was sweet. Mouthfeel was medium-to-thin and watery. So-so.

kidmartinek (4570) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 31, 2008
A golden beer with 2 inches of dense white foam. Smells like sugar, and corn syrup. Tastes like adjunct grains and some pungeant, bitter hops on the finish. Overwhemingly sweet, like a soda, not beer.

EithCubes (5475) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Green-glassed bottle. Artificial, cloying aroma, hard to stomach at times, reminds also of the laundry room where the cat food was kept in the guest family’s house. Golden body, clear with a dense and gleaming white head. Taste is gratingly, glaringly sweet, cloying and nearly undrinkable, with hay, honey, and lost of harsh graininess. Touch of corn. Lingers on the lighter side of medium. Really only bearable when you get to drinking it quickly, and even then the aftertaste is a mess.

Bottle at peculiar pub. Bought exclusively because i’ve never had ale from Greece. It was a poor offering for its style.

TheShat (131) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle pours yellow and fizzy, the aroma is bready. The beer does not have much carbonation and starts a bit sweet and has a bland finish with a touch of sour.

Tmoney99 (13239) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2008
Bottle from Belmont Beverage. Pourd clear amber color with a large frothy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Medium grassy aroma. Light to medium body. Medium sweet straw flavor with a medium sweet finish. Below average pale lager.
