I fell in love with this Lager while spending my vacation in Cordoba Spain. It had the perfect amount of bitterness to bring out great flavor. Not a heavy beer at all. Really wish I could get this beer in th U.S.A.

On tap in Malaga (also: ubiquitous all over Andalucia). Served in a half pint (imperial) glass. Beer pours crystal clear and yellow in color, with moderate foaming from the tap, but no head retention worth mentioning. Negligible aroma. Flavor is... off-crisp? Not dry or flavorful, and only a little bit of cereal sweetness to offend the senses. Bad, but not horrible. Still, it's got enough to it to cut through greasy fried Cazon or Flamenquin (as was the case for me tonight), which I suppose is the whole point. I didn't take much in the way of notes on the various draught beers I sampled in Spain, but I suspect Alhambra Especial was the clear winner among the few.

Pours gold with a quickly dissipating white head.
Nose shows vegetal and hay notes, along with faint spicy hops.
Similar flavours, mostly sweet hay with some faint cardboard and metallic notes.
Watery body.
Just another generic Euro lager really.

330ml bottle, poured into San Miguel glass. Golden colour, two finger head, clear. Smelled yeasty, notes of malt and citrus, not what I expected but nice. Fairly sweet taste, wheaty finish. Mouthfull was normal without too much carbonation. I thought this was decent for what it is, a crisp refreshing lager would go down well on a hot day in Spain.

On holiday in tenerife. Chilled 33cl bottle poured into a wine glass.

A- Golden body with lively beading, gives a solid creamy 2 finger head with an aggressive pour. This reduces quickly to leave some lace and a steady crown.

S- Smell is moderate bitter aroma hops dominating, not much malt note.

T- Gentle hint of malt with a solid hop bite in the finish which lingers well. Its crisp and clean.

M- Moderate carbonation and body.

D- A much better experience than the last time i tried Cruzcampo. Perhaps they get better stuff in Spain ;). Certainly a crisp clean lager with a good hop bite. For me, definitely one of the better Spanish mass produced golden lagers.

I had this beer at Milano in Madrid.

Cruzcampo pours a clear golden color, and is topped by a white head that eventually fades to a film leaving good lace. The aroma is pretty plain: lager sweetness, graininess, and grassy and peppery hops.

This beer starts out with the standard grainy/sweet lager taste, and then moves into a mildy bitter finish that has a small dose of grassy hops. This beer is light-bodied, moderately carbonated, and crisp.

Overall this was better than some of the other lagers we had, but it was still pretty generic.

Consumed aboard Delta flight from Madrid, Spain to JFK.

Poured a medium straw hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was decent retention and good lacing.

The smell was dominated by sweet adjunct grain and metal.

The taste consisted of a light corn sweetness, some doughy malts and a subtle floral hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the milkier side of the style.

Overall not something I would try again out of the can.
