Beer Of The Week # 11 // Mezquita


This Spanish beer is produced by Alhambra, who have been producing beer in the Grenada region of Spain since 1925. They are particularly well known for their pale lagers, notably their Especial, Reserva and Premium varieties. In addition to this they also produce a Negra beer and since 2007 Mezqita.

This dark amber beer is made in homage Belgian Abbey beers, and would be palatable to any enthusiast of Belgian beers akin to this style. A full nose of malt aromas and a hint of grapefruit citrus, this beer is full-bodied, strong and sweet with notes of spiced caramel that make for an exceptional and unusual Spanish beer. £2.20 // 7.2% ABV // 33cl.
