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.

Bottle. Light yellow with a white head. Aroma is light with citrus and hay. Taste has citrus, grain and hay. Properly bitter though too watery.

Dark golden yellow pour with just a bit of white head. Scent of euro metallic hops, lager yeast, some carmel and lemon, kind of apple-y overall. Soft carbonation with a dry astringent finish. Taste of metallic hops, lemon-y and a bit of carmel. Nice and refreshing with a little bitter.

I’m actually oddly fond of this one. There’s nothing really special about it, but I like the look of it (specially the cans they way they looked in 2012) and I have some fine memories of summer in Corfu. It pours a very clear golden pilsner colour, quite carbonated with a fair head. A little grassy and not too sweet. Good bite on the tongue and a passable bitterness. Works well where it is intended to be enjoyed, in Greece, under the Sun.

Syrlig duft av malt. Klar gyllen farge. Lite skum. Frisk og letgdrukket med en litt syrlig smak.

Clear bright pale gold beer, small white head. Palate is light and crisp. Clean pale malts, whisper of something hoppy. Crisp minerally finish. Inoffensive.

Cerbier (371) - - MAY 2, 2014
0,3l Flasche. Goldgelbes Lager mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht nach Getreide. Schmeckt dementsprechend, leicht süffig.

Lukaduke (2486) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 25, 2014
Nice pale straw color finger of fizzy white foam... lots of carbonation. Bready nose with a hint of grass and sweet corn. Palate is light refreshing and clean with a nice balance of bitter spice and sweet light malt. Crushable.

0,33l bottle @ Trocadero, Athens. Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma and flavor are grassy malts. Basic.

I’m rating lagers now. Slightly skunked aroma. Mild flavor. Nothing offensive, but a little too mild and tasteless.

Leighton (13021) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Can shared at the Siren event at Craft Clerkenwell. Proper pale lager. Nice corn, cereal, a bit of hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Good sugary pale malts to finish. Classic. Nicely done, Greece.
