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.

From bottle pours golden with little head. Very smooth light flavor, no real finish.

33cl bottle. Several times along the years.
In short: mainstream industrial poor lager.
In long: mainstream industrial poor lager. Boring.

PhillyBeer2112 (2679) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2007
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.

drpimento (2637) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Poured with a white head and a bit of lace. Clear golden yellow color, medium size bubbles. Had a malty, grassy, grainy, a tad bitter, and a hint of butterscotch. Flavor was about the same. Not bad beer. Decent body. Good finish. Could drink more of these. Had it at Cubanitas Restaurant in Milwaukee last night.

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.

@Spanje, flesje, 33cl, 5%, schenkt gouden met witte kraag, te weinig koolzuur om de kraag te voeden. aroma is moutig, nou niet echt bijzonder eigenlijk; eerder wat onaangename kenmerken. smaak is metalig(moutig), zwak bitter, iets onaangenaams, licht zoet, glad, néé ben er niet weg van, ook iets van nat gras, lichte body, lage co2. - rating ca hetzelfde als de 5.4 variant, daardoor nagenoeg letterlijk overgenomen,

jimhilt (2490) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 5, 2007
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.

jcr (2424) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle. Big, frothy head that diminishes. Dark yellow body. Looks inviting, but that’s where inviting ends. The aroma is mostly malty, grainy, with a trace of hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of canned sweet corn. Medium body with a slightly sticky finish. Moderate to fizzy carbonation.
