Alhambra Premium Lager

Grupo Cervezas Alhambra

Spain

Very much worth looking for if you visit Spain. Not because it's excellent, but it is head and shoulders above some of the more common lagers in Spain. It was certainly the best lager I tried while visiting Spain. It seemed rather easy to find in the south, where it's brewed. This beer is great for hot weather. No rice or corn or other overpowering adjuncts. Maybe just a little bit of a vegetable adjunct, but minimal. But the hell with trying to figure all that out, what I'm trying to say is that it's not pumped full of all that shit that ruins beer. It's simple and refreshing. The carbonation was a little more present than I'd like but it wasn't bad. Oh and the cans come with foil over the lip of the can to keep it sanitary, which appeals to the mild germophobe in me. A good everyday beer.
