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.

No discernible aroma. Clear pale straw with nice white bread that disappears quickly leaving a bit of lacing. Watery malt taste. Light palate. Dry finish. Drinkable. You may enjoy it if fan of american light lagers with minimum flavor otherwise skip.

serjaymz (62) - Istanbul, TURKEY - JUN 22, 2014
Şişe, @istanbul. Beyaz, kalıcı olmayan bir köpük, hafif koyu saydam sarı bir renk. Koku düz ve malt ağırlıklı, tipik standart pilsner. Tadım yine düz ve malt ağırlıklı, aroma veya şerbetçiotu acılığı içermiyor, gazlılık yok gibi.. Standart bir pilsner..

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.
