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.

From bottle. Pours a golden hue with no head. Aroma is skunky, grainy, not very good. The taste is sweet, skunky, grainy, corn. Not good at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Continuing my tour of shitty beer. Green bottle, pours a clear orangey yellow with a white foam head. Aroma of wet rocks, wet leaves, corn. Taste is slightly bitter, pretty one note.

Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with white head that diminished to a thin ring. Aroma is straw, sulphur, skunk, grassy. Mouthfeel is ok with a light body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry with a spicy hop following and sulphur finish. Overall this isn’t very good.

Santorini beer tour continued. Had this in the Athens airport lounge first and thought it was a subpar Euro lager. Then (completely objective, of course) had it on a catamaran tour around Santorini caldera from the can and it tasted great - crisp, cold, pretty clean - everything you want in a pale lager. I think the cold helped, not pouring it helped, and of course the scenery helped! In any case, this was probably the best lager I had in Greece.

0,5 l boks fra "super market" ved hotellet, på altanen på Rhodos: ser ut som en eurolager og smaker slik - klar, lys gylden med kort skum. Kort ettersmak.

Can. Pretty standard sweet pale lager with a little bite in the mouthfeel. Fruity and pleasant. Does the job it's intended to.

Bottle. Quite good. Altough very smooth and mild. Not good but surely not bad.

Direttamente dalla grecia, questa birra non mi ha colpito particolarmente, comunque non mi dispiacerebbe berla altre volte, bionda e leggera.

I didn’t like this at all. It’s just so watery and tasteless. Eventhough I was looking for a "light" beer during 30°c weather, I was still dissapointed. If you’re on holiday in Greece try a Mythos or a Fix before this one.
