Alhambra Reserva 1925
Malty, with light caramel notes and tea-like herbal hops.
Sugary-sweet, grainy, warming and alcoholic. This is a fullbodied, syrupy beer with a gentle herbal hop contrast, as well as some unfortunate oxidation.
Bittersweet and drying, turning more bitter as herbal hops really kick in to counter the lingering thick malt.
The hops in the decent finish go some way towards redeeming this bright golden Spanish beer, but it's still too obviously strong for its own good.
