3.79/5 rDev +15.5%
330ml Bottle from Lupe Pinto Deli, Glasgow (£1.49):
Dark mahogany colour with red tinges and a bubbly looking, thin head that is a brownish white and settles about half a centimetre tall. There is a touch of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Rich, roasted malts aroma with a touch of sweetness and quite a bit of chocolate. There are a few hops but these are light and subtle. I could detect a touch of alcohol, some mild coffee and more sweetness with syrup as the drink settles.
Sweet with nice roasted malts and a solid chocolate flavour. There is some light caramel and coffee with a nice earthy taste too.
Light medium & sweet with a good balance and a smooth, dry finish.
A definite step up from the other Alhambra beers I've tried. There was a great balance to the beer and the roasted malts are complimented beautifully by the sweetness and the touches of chocolate.

Thin, almost tan head. Black body.
Pure rich roasted malt smell.
A nice roasted malt taste too. Mild bitterness a little nutty.
Crisp with a medium body. Holds the flavor well.
Really a solid dark lager. Great taste and smell with that lager "lightness" to it.

11.2 oz bottle at Rodega in Washington, DC. Pours brown with off-white, medium lasting, thin head. Aroma is of bready malt and buckwheat. Body is medium and crisp. Taste is toffee, caramel and hint of herbal hops. Finish is medium and dry. Drinkable brew.

330ml bottle. Lager glass. From my notes. Dark brown color, deep ruby to the light. Brownish beige crown presents acceptable retention & short lacing. Roasted malt aroma, sweet touch & candy hues. Flavor profile shows roasted malts, sweet –no annoying- character , hints of licorice, anise & subtle chocolate. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Watery texture. ABV is well hidden so drinkability is ok. Pretty decent Euro Dark Lager.

Best before ALH1 1328. Helpful...
A: Dark brown, some retention, nice lacing.
S: Slightly sweet. Lager yeast. Faint hops. Not much going on.
T: Slight sourness at first, which comes thru again on the finish. Sweetness and a touch of vanilla. Mild hop bitterness. A hint of corn.
M: Full for a lager, but still "crisp" on the finish.
O: Drinkable, but. Fairly unremarkable.
