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. WeeHeavySD (3387) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2009

Bubbly light gold pour with white head. Skunky scent. More carbonation than I like. Bitter finish. Palidor19 (3193) - 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.

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

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. Niko100 (2984) - Chicago, New York, USA - APR 16, 2012
Light straw color; Light to medium body; Aroma of malt, & cereal/grain; Flavor of malt, grain, and some hops; Not too bland; Average lager. PhillyBeer2112 (2884) - 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. jcr (2726) - 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. lb4lb (2629) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2007
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.
