Alhambra Reserva 1925 for an early #BeerSaturday

Alhambra Reserva 1925

Hello #Beer Lovers here we go again for a new episode of #BeerSaturday.
I leave the specific LIDL beers for what they are now for a momento to get to a typical Spanish beer, Alhambra Reserva 1925.

Spanish people in general like to drink their beers cold and fast. Both have to do with the climate I guess, the beer should lessen the thirst and it shouldn’t warm up. Consequently the typical Spanish beers are lagers are tasting generally quite like any other drinkable lager, except when they’re produced by Heineken. But in that case I don’t like to call them a lager, or even a “beer” ;-).

…and except of this Alhambra Reserva 1925 which describes itself as an intense, full-bodied pilsner that is a reinterpretation of the Bohemian-style Pilsner. I learned that Alhambra uses “Saaz”, an exclusive variety of hops that gives the beer light floral and spice notes for this beer. I need a glass and not too low drinking temperatura to call these notes light floral, however definitely agree with the light spice notes. And it makes me curious to more beers that use these “saaz”. If you guys know about a beer using “saaz” please let me know in the comments. I’ll try to get one, and compare it with the Alhambra Reserva 1925 to see if this is what attracts me in this nice Spanish beer. I actually know one, Duvel, but this beer is too special and unique that it would be impossible to me to filter out the “Saaz” taste. Note, there's coming a part 4 after my Duvel Series Part 2 and Part 3 which will be all about hop :-) Stay tuned it'll be posted in #BeerSaturday in a couple of weeks.

Alhambra Reserve 1925 is definitely balancing very well between fruit and bitterness and drinking it from a glass gives a thicker foam that stays quite long enough to enjoy it. Here I can appreciate some floral tones and maybe something between cereals and nuts. The amber colour already suggests a hint of spices which is again very balanced and not dominating. This makes this beer special because it can be enjoyed by someone looking for something more than for just another lager even though people could still call it a “typical Spanish beer”

Spanish people would drink it from the bottle, which is perfectly ok, but I took a typical Spanish Lager Beer glass like you can see as well in my previous post out of respect for the 6,4% alcohol which is a little over a normal lager. Both are good choices.

These days I saw this beer available on the Internet, but I can't figure out where – surely I'll buy it when I found it.
Well, I'll pay attention if I see some beer made out of this "saaz" hop, it seems to have an unique taste indeed. Great observation! 😄

Check for Duvel, one of my favourites! It has got Saaz-Saaz. Not sure if it's the same as "Saaz" actually! !CTP

Cheers 🍻

Looks like a nice beer

Wait till you TASTE it !LOL

I was going to tell a joke about hominy.

BTW, are we already competing with the steps again? New season has started?

Not yet. Season is yet to begin

Thanks mate. Probably you can find it somewhere abroad as well. I think it's one of the few Spanish beer they might export worldwide. !BBH
