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.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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!

Estrella is a very popular beer in Catalonia, its taste is smooth, a bit bitter and pretty sparkling, good enought to be for the masses beer. Served in almost any bar in Barcelona (85% marketshare as per 2006)

Pale yellow with medium head. Weak nose of grass and some light malt. Taste is much the same. A half decent pilsener.

Bottle. Had this yonks ago, can't believe I hadn't rated it yet. Probably because its a middle-of-the-road lager. A tad sweet, but fresh enough. Grainy and medium-bodied, goes well with oily Spanish tapas.

0.33L bottle. Usual German or Czech pilsner hop aroma. Watery, hop and malt. Rubber taste after finish. Booring, but good simple, easy sauna beer.
