On tap at Westover Beer Garden. Poured into a small plastic solo cup.

I enjoyed this beer. Was unaware of the style when I first tried it and thought it to be a Vienna Lager. BA has this beer rated as a Euro Strong Lager. That may or may not be correct but I can assure you this beer does not taste like a typical Euro Lager (strong or not).

Sorry, did not have the time to write a detailed review as I was socializing.

Poured from a bottle into a 3/4 pint glass (Creemore Springs Lager Theme!). No best before date (just the custom bottle).

A - slight head that stays around less than a minute with very little lacing. Dark amber, clear and with very little obvious carbonation.

S - malty base with just a slight overtone of skunkiness (in a good way).

T - clear and tart with very subtle hops and an enduring subtle toasty malt. Strong flavors, but noting really stands out!

M - very nice sharp carbonation to offset the bitterness. Heavier than it looks.

D - extremely drinkable. Could (and have) had a number of these to great effect. Nice daily drinking beer.

Very satisfying drink with a knife's-edge balance of hoppy bitterness with toasted malt to great effect. Would love to have this one again.

Alhambra Reserva 1925
500 ml green glass bottle

Appearance: Clear, amber-copper body beneath a full head of frothy white foam that holds quite well and leaves some very nice lacing about the glass.

Aroma: Malty with caramel and background notes of sweet bread. Subtle grassy hops. It's not bold but neither is it hard to find. Pleasant. Surprisingly not skunked given the green glass bottle.

Flavor: As the aroma indicates in every way. It's kind of like a malty Vienna lager with it's caramelish malt and mildly grassy, floral, and gently spicy (alcohol?) hops. A stiff bitterness anchors it and it finishes dry, subtly spicy, and lingering.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full in body with a dextrinous edge and a crisp, gently effervescent carbonation that softens to smooth as it warms.

Overall: The bottle makes a great impression, and the beer has some depth of character to it. Pleasant and enjoyable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Light amber; small head; no real lacing

Aroma: Malty; slight honey; grassy

Taste: Very smooth and well balanced; wasn't too complex, but very drinkable; like a pale lager, but slightly sweeter

Remarks: Good session beer

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
