I really liked this while in Cambrils. It was about the best that was there. Pours a darker yellow with a white lacy head. European aroma that is ok. Taste is sweet, malty, with an ok aftertaste. Mouth feel is good. Not sure how old it was.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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)

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.
