1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled as Damm Barcelona. Sweet adjuncty aroma, whiff of corn and sugar. Sickly pale orange-golden with a soapy white head and disgusting strands floating in it - Iím assuming protein. Taste is sweet but not cloying, strong pale malts with a light crisp smack from the thought of hops. Light bitterness and a nice earthy component. Straw, corn, and a touch of veggies. Light body, really one of the better of its kind as far as robustness of flavor, and thatís a shame.

The ratings for this are poor, but I thought this was one of the better Spanish lagers I have sampled. It aint great and hasnít got a great deal of taste, but thatís probably a good thing when compared to piss like Cruzcampo. Smoothish and drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2008 Fairly standard lager, refreshing on a hot day but nothing spectacular.
Very light tasting, not much flavour other than hops.

Had this in the hotel mini-bar in Barcelona. Not a very good beer. Thin yellow with litle head. Almost an astringent quality to it. I didnít want another one. Spain produces good wines, but not beer.

330 ml decorated plastic bottle, it pours an enormous head that leaves a good lace. Deep golden colour, itís always bubbling. Smells of hops, some grain and fruit, citrus. Standard taste of nothing, just a bit citrus and grain, maybe some sweetness but with a bitter finish. Refreshing? Yes. But nothing more to say in its favour.

Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Pale golden, medium white head. Grainy malt aroma with some dusty hops. Light in body, somewhat spritzy mouthfeel. Dry and moderately bitter finish. Quite decent pale lager, would work well chilled a hot day in Barcelona.

A Mes rate: Bottle at the Mother Bar while watching the Notorious Hi-Fi Killers.
Pale gold with a reasonable white head. Corny malt aroma with slight paper but not that bad. Very papery flavour with lots of corn. Hard worse but had many better. Bland but inoffensive finish. Thankfully not full of metal as I was expecting but, erm... NEXT!

Clear yellow coloured body with medium white head and some nice carbonation. Herby fresh and a bit fruity aroma (malt). Full palate. Ending is bit creamy and bitter (hoppy hints).
