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

33cl bottle. Clear golden pour, bleached white foamy head, decent lace. buttery, white oak aroma. Plain, pale lager flavor. Sweet malt, very insignificant presance of medicinal hop flavoring. Not a great lager, better than some others. When in Spain, I guess?

The aroma is like creamed corn with grain. The appearance is slightly hazy gold with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma. The palate is typical. Overall it’s nothing worth mentioning other than to say it’s not good.

FlacoAlto (3838) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2010
A fresh bottle from the distributor, Sampled at 1702, Tucson; April 2010,br> This beer pours into my glass with a brilliantly clear, light cider-yellow color. It is topped by a fizzy white head that quickly disappears. The beer smells more like cider to me than anything, but also has some nuttiness to it as well as a touch of grain.

Interestingly enough this tastes of toasted nuts underneath a more omnipresent cider like flavor. Perhaps a touch of cardboard is found here and the beer is lightly sweet which is somewhat offset by the fizzy, light texture. Some green acetaldehyde is also found here. This is certainly a beer meant to be drunken ice cold; this is a touch on the warm side, so it is not crisp and refreshing and instead has too much flavor for a beer of this type.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2007
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.

Holmen1 (3411) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2014
På hotellrommet i Granada, 0,33 boks: klar gylden med fint hvitt skum (som de fleste andre denne ferieuka). Floral bitterhet med llitt gress og kokte grønnsaker. Kort avslutning. OK for 1 euro, men det er det hele.

Bubbly light gold pour with white head. Skunky scent. More carbonation than I like. Bitter finish.

Palidor19 (3065) - Brandon, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Bah, too much low quality malts and flavor of corn and rice adjuncts. Just your standard sub-par Pale Lager. Nothing to boast about.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAR 15, 2007
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.
