Alhambra Reserva 1925: Saving One & All This Christmas
Neon’s Sarah discusses how the Spanish larger Alhambra Reserva 1925 can save you this Christmas…
Christmas is exhausting. My fingers genuinely get cramp thinking about online shopping and don’t get me started on my feet when it comes to the real thing. In particular I’ve always found men the most challenging to buy presents for because you don’t want to be too stereotypical so that you’re basically being sexist – here’s a football! Foot-ay! – but you also want to give them something that they will actually like/ enjoy. That’s where the hand-crafted Spanish larger Alhambra Reserva 1925 comes into play. The premium larger is from Granada Spain and created in 1925 is the city’s oldest beer, still brewed in the same brewery with the original recipe.
The beer tastes like your classic larger but with a floral edge, a caramel smoothness and a kick of citrusy crispness that derives from the hand-selected Saaz hops that make up the beers recipe. What is great about this beer besides the taste is that its packed with uniquely refined bubbles which could be the result of the brewers having had nearly a century to perfect their method.
The beer comes in beautifully embossed green bottles you would be proud to present at the Christmas Present Ceremony. This means when your chosen receiver approaches said present you will find there is no need for usual rituals to ensue. These include: the wince, excuse yourself and run-to-eat-your-shame-with-cheese ritual as well as the set-fire-to-the tree-whilst-simulataneously-telling-your-aunty-that-your-uncle-told-you-you-were his-child distraction ritual.
Alhambra Reserva 1925 is definitely not just for men (I have enjoyed several bottles myself…) I’m simply implying that it is a fantastic present solution for men as it will sedate them (lols) and impress them with its beautiful appearance and classic yet delicious taste.
Order Alhambra Reserva 1925 in supermarkets nationwide or online here.
And now to end with some final Christmas present pondering: I actually think men also find men challenging to buy for. I believe this was best reflected during the Christmas of 2001 when my middle brother gave my eldest brother the generous gift of a free FHM calendar minus the actual copy of FHM. Now if that’s not an absolute cheep disaster what is my friends, what is. Merry Christmas!
