radagast83 (5657) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Light brown/dark amber bottle. Aroma is grassy with weak hops. Yellowish pour, with a small white foamy head that all but disappears. Flavor is weak malts with a heavy influence of grass. Nearly indistinguishable from any other pale lager.

daknole (10279) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle from Zekes. Yellow pour, light head. Shocker a sorry lager. Wow. Who would have guessed? Grainy, corn, malt and not much else. Flavor is quite bland. Corn and malty. Bleh.

Pailhead (5633) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2009
Bottle: The aroma is a strange combination of sweet grain, straw, metal, and maybe even a hint of strawberry. It pours a transparent gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a ring around the edges of the glass. The flavor starts lightly sweet with some grainy notes in the background. The sweetness builds into the finish with some light grassiness. It certainly tastes better than it smells, but that’s not much of a compliment. Light bodied with somewhat fizzy carbonation.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Bleh. Typical sweet, grassy pale lager. Maybe a bit more malt and a hint of complexity above your average American pale lager, but still plain and tasteless. Spanish Budweiser.

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.

Sammy (9527) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2007
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.

beernovice39 (3267) - Montana, USA - APR 30, 2010
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,
