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.

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.

PilsnerPeter (3050) - 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.

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.

1.8
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.

2.9
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.
