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.

Cimbasso (739) - - 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 (752) - 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 (920) - 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 (1335) - 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.

Guruhso (413) - Grindsted, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2016
Can in Agia Marina, Crete. Aroma of malt and grassy hops with cornish notes. The flavour is mainly bitter. The body is light and the texture is watery. A medicore beer.
