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.

Should have been titled Estrella Hamm’s. I couldn’t finish it. I can’t comment to the appearance as it came in a bottle. It reminded me of your standard bottled lager that you would buy at the 7-11.

Zoret (278) - Badalona, SPAIN - JUL 20, 2016
Cervesa daurada i transparent amb escuma blanca i abundant. Aromes pobres de gra i palla. En boca es similar amb tocs de blat de moro i una mica aigualida. No m’agradat massa.

lbianchi66 (297) - FRANCE - JUL 15, 2016
Robe jaune clair, la mousse ne tient pas. Arôme légèrement malté. Presque rien en goût, un peu résineuse. Texture aqueuse. Autant boire de l’eau...

GoufCustom (1527) - HONG KONG - JUL 13, 2016


330 ml can bought at CitySuper in Habour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear light golden yellow colour One-quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 40 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with quite fizzy carbonation; Slightly pungent smell of malt, with honey, strong floral, grain alcohol, sugar, thin lemon and grass; Medium sweet taste of fair malt, with strong grains, barley spirit, molasses, very dry bread, very light lemon, light bitter hops and light strawy grass; Mid to light body. Thin but slick palate; Mouth feel is fair maltyness in a quite watery background. Free of rice taste but has nagging, omnipresent barley spirit so typical of Japanese macro Happoshus. Dry-ish, okay sweetness. Low-bow lemon to round. Iffy… Hoppiness is strong floral, thin lemon and grass in nose. Very light lemon and strawy grass in taste; Bitterness is lightweight for an abrupt, light astringent grain-spirit finish; Dry after taste. Fairly easy to mouth.

Comments: Got to say this is slightly better than the ricey and sweet Estrella Damm 4.6% - but barely just. Its maltyness seems stronger and less sweet, but the dry barley spirit taste should have not existed to a regular lager. Drinkable with caution, these Damm stuff are basically just… Dammed.

Enteogenisk (125) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - JUL 13, 2016
Bottle in wine glass. Tastes like some very light beer in which spaghetti has been macerating.

Jasne zwykłe piwo, bez smaku, wodniste, nic się nie dzieje. Aromatu w zasadzie brak.

AssKicker (182) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - MAY 13, 2016
Bière blonde à la mousse peu résistante. Base maltée façon pils, amertume assez prononcée sans le moindre arôme. Bref, une sorte de Heineken avec un peu plus de caractère tout de même.
