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.

Typical foreign Lager. Clear/yellow coloring, bland taste, and a nasty aftertaste. Recommended only to say you’ve had Greek beer.

Szopeen (341) - POLAND - OCT 9, 2016
Piwo złociste, klarowne, piana z początku nawet ładna, ale szybko znika. Typowy jasny lager, wyraźnie estrowe, goryczka zerowa.

Reading my travel journal from Greece in 2014 - found all my beer reviews from then. Sitting in Rhodes on a patio near Kolona harbour. Alfa is better than Mythos with a light dryness, mild grassy and light spice note. Crisp and refreshing but boring, bland. Not offputting.

Draft 0.33l at Tsi Tsi Glyfada, Greece. 24.07.2016. Pour it clear golden color with small white head. Aroma grainy. Taste watery, easy drinkable, kind of malty, nice refreshing for hot summer weather.

Cimbasso (772) - - AUG 27, 2016
Sampled on draught at holiday hotel in Crete. Fairly standard euro-lager, but slightly stronger than most. Good appearance with a golden colour and a healthy white head. Decent malty taste, but little bitterness or aftertaste. Very pleasant on a hot day by the swimming pool.

Sjohnh (773) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2016
Pale lager appearance. Thicker body than I expected and oily. Quite malt heavy. Vegetal on taste and nose. One is enough.

hrabren (940) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 17, 2016
0.5 l can from Greece, thanks to Bo?ica, Queen of Savica and Sa?a. Clear golden, small frothy white head. Metallic aroma with hints of malts. Something strangely sweet, like honey. Strange, but not necessarily bad. Medium carbonation, light body, watery texture, abrupt finish.

koshack (1349) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 30, 2016
Złote, lekko zamglone. Piana średnio pęcherzykowa. opada bez śladów na szkle. Aromaty chmielowe szybko się ulotniły przechodząc w słodowe. W smaku lekka goryczka, ale nie przechodzi w słodowość. Całkiem niezłe.
