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

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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice rich gold color with just a little head.
Very slight skunk in my bottle, along with malt, and a touch of yeast. Smooth, but ample carbonation makes it pretty nice and refreshing. Decent pale lager, actually. Maybe a touch drying in the finish which gives it a slightly unique character. Very drinkable and I wouldn’t mind having again if for some reason it was availabe.
