Enjoyed on draught in Barcelona. Classic lager appearance. Sort of a sweet malt taste with a touch of bitterness/dryness on the end. Not very good buy enjoyable and refreshing on a hot day.

Believe me, I´m spanish. This is not the best beer in my country. It´s a bad lager and is even worse if you try it from the bottle. It was better a few years ago but they changed it to fit in the german laws of beer and sell it in other european countries. If you come to spain try Ambar, Mahou or Cruzcampo rather than Estrella.

A typical mediterranen beer; to be drunken in the sun.
Some odd aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice head, golden color, laces, grainy, hoppy but very light and forgetable after a sip. Nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught, in Barcelona
Golden fizzy larger, served as cold as possible. No aroma and very little flavour. Typically served with a large white head in a flute shaped glass (approximately ½ a pint). Refreshing in the sun but that’s all. The alcohol is a little sneaky as well at 5.4%.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A poor beer when placed amongst the vast number of European beers on offer. Very much a mainstream beer served in just about every bar in Spain. Has no memorable qualities at all. Bland is being kind. Goes flat very easily.
