COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ΑΛΦΑ ΖΥθΟΣ. Traditional Greek. 100% Greek barley.

Alfa Hellenic Beer is a lager beer, with 5% alcohol content with its 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!

Alfas 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.

presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2010
A new category to compete with Lawnmower Beer. I call it Housework Beer. Worked up a sweat with the vaccuum and grabbed this single from the fridge. Green bottle. Strong grassy aroma. Dark amber. Pretty straight forward clean grain and grass flavour. Decent hop level.

DuffMan (10148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep golden, with an average white head. aroma is skunky, grassy hops and slightly toasty cereal. Flavour is much the same, with the pale malts standing out notably compared to North American pale lagers. This reminds me of what Heineken used to be, 20 years ago when it was still an import, before it became a derivative shitty contract-brewed fuck-up of a pale lager. This gave me nostalgia and satisfaction, which is more than I can say for 95% of the pale lagers Ive had.

LoFi (1714) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2012 Can from Crete supermarket. Pale golden, paler than the draught version. Aroma: sweet malt, lemons. Taste: quite a lot of flavour compared to some of the other lagers here. Semi-sweet maltiness, citrus and grapes, light bready, low bitterness. Together with Amstel, this is one of the beers that worked the best with the food and climate. Didnt rate the draught when I had it, but that was better.
