COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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. This lager beer with a universally appreciated character and taste is ideal for drinking at any time. Its high quality is due to the finest selection of raw materials and the meticulous brewing process. It stands out for its creamy hops-flavoured froth and refreshing taste.

33 cl. bottle. Basic lager appearance-gold, bubbly, with a disappearing thin foamy white head. Not much in the way of aroma, just some straw and mild hop grassiness. Overly sweet flavor, with notes of cardboard, overcooked vegetables and corn. Aftertaste of dishsoap. I was not loving this one.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2009 Bottle in Andorra. Just another sub-standard pale lager. More fizz than flavour.

Slipstream (2061) - USA - SEP 25, 2007
Light, fizzy Barcelona lager. A little hoppy bitterness. Pleasant and probably good with food, but mostly forgettable on its own. Like that pub you used to go to once in a while - what was its name again?

DocLock (8016) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Pale gold pour with 1-finger, fizzy white head. Aroma of hopcitrus, slight honey, apricot, and thiols. Weak palate with flavor notes of hopcitrus, and grainy pale malt.

mike_77 (3335) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - SEP 11, 2007
Pale lager. Clean, dry aroma. Flavour is smooth and fresh but lacks a little of the flavour offered by the "Classic" version of this beer. It’s a little dry and bitter but overall easy to drink and leaves a slightly fruity/sweet aftertaste.

johndoughty (4064) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2007
Yellow and very little carbonation. Medium body with a gentle if uninspiring flavour. A thirst quencher on a hot day and nothing else.

Bullit (4030) - Burgos, SPAIN - SEP 1, 2007
Typically pale lager. Nothing to add here, exept that this beer tastes a bit metallic and bitter.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
@Bluebottle, Crystal Palace., London Weak, pale lager. Metallic taste, pine nose - not one for the memory.

ALLOVATE (2459) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2007
The epitomal location, location, location beer in the way this would go down a treat in the Summer months, in a club in Barcelona. Here, the dead of winter, not so much. But bring on Summer and two-stroke lawn-mowers on a Sunday morning, mmm lager!!! It sparkles, is translucent, is a pale gold, no surprises. Head is a flabby, soapy white mess that legs well. Run-of-the-mill, dry, grainy and grassy, herbal nose that is tainted by vegetal notes. Quite thin yet precision engineered in delivery in the mouth. Bitter, grassy hops play, feint dusty pale grains compliment, very little sweetness, no drawing adjunct notes to bother the discerning. Palate is delicate, fast in pace, very clean and crisp on the swallow with just a little sourness and drained sweetness residing to remind you you are having a beer. It has a job to do, it is nothing it is not, a taste for Summer. (4.6% ABV, 33cL, no date stamp, Liquorland Beechboro)
