This beer is made by the folks who make Alhambra beer; which, together with Cruzcampa, seems to comprise the bulk of the Spanish beer market.
It has more hops aroma and bitterness than other Spanish beers we’ve tried, including the more-expensive “reserve” beers put out by the major breweries. Most of these latter type tend to have higher alcohol content than the standard brews; and the makers tend to go too light on the bittering hops, which makes for too sweet a beer. At least the Alhambra 1925 Reserve avoids that mistake. You will notice the bitterness (in a good way).
Like all Spanish beers so far, this one lacks the body, hoppiness, and character of a good German or English or Irish or American brew. It ain’t no Anchor Steam, but it is drinkable, and sits at the top of the Spanish heap…so far.
It rates a “Drink It if There’s Nothing Better in the Fridge.”
By the way, it costs about a Euro per 12-ounce bottle in your neighborhood grocery store.
