Alhambra brewery was founded in Granada in 1925 and is named after the city’s magnificent Alhambra Palace. Alhambra beers, like the Palace, are a by-word for tradition and craftmanship.
Golden colour, smooth and crisp with a full, rich texture with lowish carbonation and a little honeyed malt. Aromas of honey, nuts, apple and banana then lead to more citrus fruit evident on the palate, malt is balanced by the hops providing bitterness and spice.
Its low carbonation on draught makes Alhambra Especial an effective food-friendly match with many dishes; its citrus character goes with most things from Tapas and Pad Thai, fresh tiger prawns to a classic juicy burger.
Ideal accompaniments are fish, grilled vegetables, salads; Manchego, Tres Oscos, Cheddar and Yarg cheese.
