2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Estrella Damm is a clear golden colored beer with a very frothy and quickly disappearing white head. The aroma is especially malted for a cereal based beer. The flavor is sour with some slight citrus and very slight hop characteristics. While the finish is not very clean, the high malt qualities made this quite enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
2008 Bottle - Pours a bright yellow with a decent sized white head...aroma is subtle grass, bit o’ Iberian sunshine, flavour is nice, yeast, a lot going on for a lager, bitterness without the hop bite, good on a hot day for sure, but a lager is still a lager...

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2008 Pale gold that pours with a paper-thin head and an aroma dominated by corn and DMS. I sampled this out of a 500 mL can, and the beer really seemed to take on a metallic flavour from the container. Once you get past that, there’s a little bready malt but hardly any hop profile. The 10/20 for "overall impression" may seem out of place in comparison with the low scores I gave this beer across the board, but I drank a lot of it (bottled and on tap) while in Barcelona recently and found it tolerable.
