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.

Originally rated on 7/31/08. Pours a medium yellow body, ample carbonation with a mid sized white cap, however it had floaters (yeast?), not common for this style. Smell of sweet malts, light hops, good lacing. Rather average beer all the way around.

Taste is slightly sweet and caramel and there is a light bitterness for the after taste.

Soft bodied lager with a slight touch of irritating sweetness. Refreshing on a hot summers day.

kacperred (194) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 5, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2016 Butelka. Barwa słomkowa charakterystyczna dla eurolagerw, piana nikła, bardzo szybko opadająca. W aromacie przede wszystkim słodowość, lecz można wyczuć odrobinę owocw. W smaku mocno słodowe, ale nie do przesady. Obecne także dość ciekawe znikome posmaki jakby kwaśnego jabłka dodające pijalności i sprawiające, że piwo jest bardziej orzeźwiające. Dalej jest to jednak eurolager ze swoimi typowymi cechami.

Aromat: Dominujący aromat słodowy, z lekkim kwiatowym dodatkiem chmielu. Wygląd: Klarowna słomkowa barwa ozdobiona białą pianą, ktra ulega szybkiej redukcji. Smak: Podobnie jak w aromacie wyraźnie słodowy, słodki smak z goryczką na niskim poziome. Odczucie: Wysokie nasycenie dwutlenkiem węgla. Jest ono wytrawne, lekko chropowate. Na podniebieniu także uczucie ściągania spowodowane garbnikami. Rwnież występuje delikatne rozgrzanie od alkoholu

Backlog rating. Can shared by Leighton at CBC CW, London. It pours a pale golden color with minimal white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy, light straw starch and grass. Taste has light sweetness, light plastic, heavy grains. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, decent enough

Can in Greece. Smells muddy, tastes edgy, like cardbord. Havent seen any locals who buy that.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Cary, NC. This beer is a pale clear yellow with a very small white head. The aroma is skunk with some wheat, I am not looking forward to the first taste. Yep, the flavor is heavy on the skunk side with some grass that follows. Not a good beer at all, Marathon is a much better beer from Greece. This may taste better in Greece.
