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.

Essentially the Spanish version of Bud -- well, really somewhat better. Ubiquitous throughout the country, much like Bud/Miller et al in the States. Not great, just a typical ’Spanish standard’ lager, with a little bit of flavor and too much carbonation. Do yourself a favor -- when in southern Europe, drink red wine (especially vino negro in Catalunya). It’s cheaper, usually much better tasting, and is often made on the premises. Remember, the point of vacationing in Europe is to *escape* American culture, not partake of imitations.

Een ander label, bij de Spaanse tapas in Berlijn een flesje of twee weggedronken. Prima uit de fles, lekker bij zoute knoflook lekkernijen en gezellig klinken met de flessen. Proost.

Has a pleasant, crisp malty flavor. Not much to smell, but nothing nasty, either. Overall, very drinkable depending on price.

Grumbo (1085) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
From historic notes, bottled from Beers of Europe, also draft in Barcelona. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grain and grass. Light sweetness, light+ bitterness. Light body, texture just a touch creamy. Average carbonation. Malty finish. Have had worse.

Draught at some random concert venue. Clear light golden liquid with medium white head. Aroma of grain, metal, boiled vegetables, earth and corn. Taste is very light sweet and light bitter with notes of bread, grain, corn and sweet malt. Light to medium bodied with medium to high carbonation. Very mediocre. Meaningless. Watery.
