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.

The appearance of the beer was white with golden yellow and nice initial head. Malty aroma. The mouthfeel was on the thin side, and the taste extreme metallic, if you are looking for that sort of thing.

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

bottle, clear yellow, pretty badly skunked so it is hard to see much of anything in this beer,

Bah, too much low quality malts and flavor of corn and rice adjuncts. Just your standard sub-par Pale Lager. Nothing to boast about.

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 itís nothing worth mentioning other than to say itís not good.

Bottle. Big, frothy head that diminishes. Dark yellow body. Looks inviting, but thatís 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.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark yellow. Aroma is trace hops (herbs), lightly malty (grain/cereal, husks), with a note of soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Grainy, industrial, blah.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Dark straw to light golden in color. Taller, foamy white head. Certainly skunk or actually closer to fox scent. Hints of grain and herbal hops. Sweet chalky flavors with quite some amount of floral hops. Somewhat watery in feel. Sort of sugary and syrupy flavors at time along with the grain and husky. Some hints of alcohol Mid to late quaff drag this one down further.
