2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a surpisingly lush dark gold, with a nice head of off-white and intricate lacing. Smells of watered down vegetable juice and government-issue honey. Flavor is a spikey rush of artificial sweetener and corn, with a slight floral finish. Watery mouthfeel. I guess this would be okay to drink if I was IN Spain, but I’m in Houston so it doesn’t work for me right now.

Aroma is grassy and beery. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with a hint of sweet malts.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My 12oz bottle was labeled "Alhambra Especial Premium Lager" in gold lettering, and it was 5% ABV.
Crystal clear light golden pour with a vanishing white head. Sweet crystal malt aroma, cereal flakes and sweet corn syrup. Flavor was light and sweet, with subtle ripe fruit notes of old apples. Middle was papery, with a pale malt hint, some maize, leading to a grassy, straw like finish. Better than expected.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bah, too much low quality malts and flavor of corn and rice adjuncts. Just your standard sub-par Pale Lager. Nothing to boast about.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Dirty and sweaty aroma, like a drunk farmer. A tad grainy, tart/astringent and overall pretty gross. Lightly bitter finish.
Ugly on the whole. Pale golden color, small head.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a white, four-finger head that goes slowly to a thin layer leaving a good lace. Light carbonation and light-medium bodied. Crystal clear amber color. Nose is hoppy. Flavor is weird, definitely not sweet maybe metallic, finish is like old socks. Almost a pour. Expensive at $2.95 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits, Acton, MA.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from an Asian grocery. Poured Pale yellow with thick fast dissipating white head. Faint grassy aroma, and as the beer warmed the aroma did not get any more noticeable. Light lagerish flavour, crisp and clean, but not impressing. Almost no finish. This is just another 1-2-3 macro lager, maybe better than some.
