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 Dammís 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.

This has got to be one of my favourite bland lagers of the current time. Iíve had the stronger stuff in Spain but this is what they sell over here at my local tesco, with a 3 for 2 offer, so 12 bottles for a tenner, not bad value compared to the other of wishy washy UK lager like Stella, Bud, Carling, Fosters Gold etc which retail at £8 for 12. Granted I havenít had it in anything other than a bottle, but itís crisp, with a pleasing lagery taste. It holds well in high quantity, which is very important for me as I tend to drink at least 8-12 bottles in a session. The alcohol content is also pleasing for this purpose, at 4.6 it doesnít get me as drunk as 5% stuff would, but lasts the same amount of time. It smells like a lazy Spanish afternoon, and would go great with tapas. The colour I assume is pale golden, as the Spanish stuff is. It also has an added benefit in that Iíve had no ill effects the following morning, as I do so often with the now 4.8% major brand lagers that we have in this country, which have also become very metallic. I assume this is because of a lack of chemical filtering. It has corn, and citrus in the nose, very grainy taste, with a mild hint of citrus. Light beer for light summer days. Lovely.

Not bad for mass produced stuff. Grassy and slight hops in there. Serve cold though !

Bottle 0,25ltr: Clear golden colored brew with an light sweet bitter taste and some corny hints. Bought apparently the 4,6% version at the LIDL, remembered the version i knew is more crispier of taste.

I used to love this beer. In recent years quality was fluctuating. Sometimes you get a very fresh and hoppy beer, but the next month it is quite flat and unpleasant. Good lager on my list anyway. Tap is very smooth.

Batavi (96) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2015
Uitgeschonken in pilsener fluitglas. Lichtgele kleur met witte schuimkraag die snel terugzakt. Geur van pilsenermout, en citrus. Zachte, licht zoete smaaktonen van mout, gras/hooi en citrusfruit met een verfrissende smaak. Korte licht bittere afdronk met in de verte iets van hop. Prima en verfrissend lagerbier uit Spanje, typisch een biertje wat erg geschikt is voor bij het eten. Meer moet je van dergelijk bier niet verwachten.
