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.

pintbypint (3014) - Edmonton, Alberta, - DEC 15, 2011
330ml green bottle. Golden with a white head that fades quickly. No lacing. Nose is grainy and sweet with faint hops. Grainy taste, light grassy hops, low bitterness. A bit of grass in the aftertaste. Generic international styled lager in the vein of Heineken. Somewhat refreshing, but not something I would rush out to purchase again.
