Alhambra Reserva 1925: Spanish Amber in London

Regular readers of SEEN will know that we like to try something we haven’t tasted before. In between the rain and EU results, the sun does indeed shine in this fair city, and that’s when SEEN reaches for a nice ice-cold lager. Beers and lagers seem to be all over London this summer, just in time for the Olympics.

The hand-crafted Alhambra Reserva 1925 is named after the famous palace and has been produced in a traditional manner since 1925, brought to market by Mahou San Miguel, one of Spain’s major brewing concerns.

Saaz hops, picked for their bitterness and aroma are added by hand to create balance and flavour prior to the addition of spring water. 35 days of slow fermentation then occurs to give the drinker a delightfully refreshing lager. Very smooth, not too sweet and with a great citrus orange ‘bite’ to it; it will please the seasoned artisanal lager fanatic as well those seeking more casual ice-cold refreshment.
