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.

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.

massingasetta (399) - München, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
Alfa beer is a classic Greek beer and one you are bound to drink when on holidays in Greece. This is not a terrible beer, but it is without any variance. Like a beer where the last pep is missing. Does quench thirst but not much more.

Imported from old beer-rating-app. I had this beer draught during my greece holidays on a small island near Rhodos. Ok It had about 40 degrees Celsius and I was very thirsty after a longer boat trip, but I remember it as extremely drinkable and refreshing. Much better as the other greek beers I have tasted, ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
