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.

A Greek beach beer similar to corona. Yellow, mild, grassy. Nothing offensive or exceptional.

Nevalainen (680) - FINLAND - JUN 11, 2016
Clear pale color with white head. Very weak malty aroma. Taste is a bit stronger, bitter and malty. An ordinary cheap lager.

Bamsen78 (5199) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
Can. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Faint aroma of yeast, with nanotouches of malt. Bitter flavour of hops (enhanced by metal), with sweetish notes of malt and yeast, both of inferior quality. Bready hints. Sweetish, malty aftertaste. Drinkable but I would certainly prefer something else, even on a hot day in Athens.

MiP (15394) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2016
Can, 5%. Papery, slightly ashy aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable chalk white head. The flavour is watery with a mild maltiness and a low bitterness. If not for the watery character of the beer, I am sure the faint floral aroma hop would not be detected - but it is there. Clean and harmless.

Bottle - unable to pour out of bottle, pretty typical euro pale lager aroma and flavor, mildly dry finish, not bad for what it is though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

weihenweizen (3413) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Aluminum can, best by March 2017, poured into a cup. Slightly hazy golden with small white head. Aroma is nice grain, light body, very low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is light grain.

anstei (1687) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 25, 2016
0,5l bottle on Lesbos. A typical macro lager. Corny, bland, artificially sweet. Fizzy hard carbonation, oily, medium body. Meh.

rikstar (2475) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2016
0,5l fles in xania op Kreta. Erg vlak en zoet pils bier, totaal gebrek aan enige vorm van diepgang, puur gebrouwen om het zo snelmogleijk naar binnen te kunnen hijsen.

nickd717 (4429) - Sofia, BULGARIA - APR 24, 2016
Draft in Thessaloniki. Clear golden yellow with a small white head. Grain, grass, sight honey aroma. Flavor is typical pale lager, light and bland. Not much interesting. Light body, crisp, meh finish. Its what it is. Its all Greek to me.
