Alhambra Reserva 1925, Spain's Best Strong Lager 2016
Mysterious and captivating, Alhambra Reserva 1925 is the iconic beer of the Cervezas Alhambra brewery. With intense character and a full body, Alhambra Reserva 1925 is the reinterpretation of the Bohemia Pilsen style, produced with a breed of ‘Saaz’ hop, one of the most exclusive in the world. Its rich and exquisite flavour and its distinctive presentation, a singular green bottle with no label, create an exceptional beer, apt for the most distinguished palates. Its colour, somewhere between amber and gold, reveals the ever so special character of Alhambra Reserva 1925. An intense aroma, it mixes hints of toasted grains with lightly floral and spiced nuances, characteristic of Saaz hop. When delving into its flavour, the toasty hints of caramel complement the moderate bitterness. In palate, hints of grains and hop, providing a distinctive character and conveying the perfect touch of bitterness.
