COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Estrella Damm Beer 330ml - Lager Origin Specific - Contains 4.6% alcohol. This fine Wells and Young drink by Estrella is made in Spain. This beer is the jewel in the crown of Damm’s century-long beer-brewing experience. Since 1876, when Alsatian August Kuentzmann Damm founded the company bearing his name, numerous generations of master brewers have perfected this lager until it has become a landmark in the world of beers.

There is not much going on in the aroma. Some hay, straw, perhaps even citrus. It appears clear and golden, with a shortly lasting white head. The taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter in the finish. The most important thing is the refreshing character. A boring beer, but a good (summer) drink anyway.

StueyD (1158) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2014
A pale yellow coloured beer with a weak white head. A rather sulphurous, eggy and rubbery aroma, with some hops and malt once the initial smell dissipates. Dry mouthfeel. A tart hop flavour to start, slightly metallic, is followed by a more sweeter malt flavour, that tempers the tartness. This combination remains into the finish.

This refreshing light beer is perfect for the early spring day. The golden in colour beverage has the malty sweetness that is expected from a rice beer.

allmyvinyl (3347) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2014
660ml bottle from Tesco. Pours clear pale gold, no head. Aromas are grains and dusty lemon. Taste is light sweet. Finishes astringently. Meh.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2014
Canette de 500 ml achetée à la LCBO de Hawkesbury. Dégustée le 4 août 2010 (mug). Bière blonde pâle limpide. Mousse beaucoup, col épais blanc, persistant. Très effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur de skunk, de savon en poudre. Très très douce, peu sucrée, un peu amère. Saveur un peu citronnée, de grain. Goûte l’eau, ensemble plutôt terne. Style semblable aux autres Euro-lagers. Inoffensive, drabe.

prawlie (1141) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2014
Bottle from Tesco into a pint glass. Pale yellow, gassy, bubbly head. Reasonably hopped aroma with some malt. Malty, bitter, not too bad. Not going to set the world alight by any means. Drinkable but very plain. Inoffensive.

dogbomb (943) - ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle. Pale gold with lots of bubbles and a white scum. Nose is corny sweetness with a tiny bit of lemon hop. Taste is sugary sweet with a touch of that corn syrupy taste and lemon hop. Finish is icky and sticky. Bleh.

JaKeAFC (545) - ITALY - APR 6, 2014
66 cl bottle. Pale yellow color, clear, with big white head. Stingy nose. Aroma is malty, grainy, biscuits, with straw and hay. Some hoppy notes, a bit metallic bitterness, rice/starch. Nicely bodied for a 4.6, average carbonation, good enough.

Typical eurobeer. Nothing special but to have one during watching footy. Visually ok, aroma is quite sweet and somehow metallic. Tastes sweet, I recognised plum and raisin. In conclusion, regular euro beer, as it is meant to be.

330 ml bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s in Mei Foo.

Piss pale golden yellow colour; Less than one-quarter finger head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Very small lacing with fizzy carbonation; Pungent smell of light malt, with strong rice, grains, hint of corn syrup, stale apple, faint wet cardboard, thin lemon and smelly grass; Light sweet taste of malt, with rice, grains, soggy bread, lemon, mid to light bitter hops and strawy grass; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is thinned-out adjuncted Asian macro Pale lager: okay maltyness, minimal sweetness, lots of rice and grains, soggy bread palate; Hoppiness is light lemon and smelly grass in nose, strong strawy grass in taste. Obvious bitter hops for the style for abrupt moderately light bitter finish; Wet after taste. Easy to mouth.

Comments: I just don’t understand why an established European brewery has to make their Pils smells and tastes like an Asian macro Pale - ricey, grainy, thin with stinky hops, while I can get them cheaply with real local macros if I want it. This is premium-priced garbage. Drain pours!
