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.

500ml can. Pours golden with sufficient mousse like head. The only aroma is bread notes. Mouthful feels smooth yet not week. The taste itself is very friendly and lightly hoped. Good beer!

[backlog] 31-08-15 // bottle at Besitos Mainz. Clear golden colour. Clean and crisp taste. Nothing special.

Fisler (392) - Bamberg, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2016
Schönes Gold im Glas, nicht zu hell, stabiler Schaum. In der Nase malzig, maischig, im Trunk malzig, leichte Süße, hinten bitter. Hohe Drinkability, gut für ein Industriebier.

Bierdimpfe (327) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
Bright pale yellow color with a small cloud of fat bubbles. Faint frothy white 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with faint lacing. Flavors of skunk, roasted sweet grains, corn and syrup. Slick medium body with excessive prickly carbonation. Light finish with a short lingering thick syrupy feel, roasted malts, and faint noble hops. Overall this is crap. Watery flavors, too much sugar and low quality ingredients. Not fresh and flat. Boozy smell and filled with bad corn. The mouthfeel is slightly better than the average adjunct.

I had it from the bottle. The taste is caramel malt, corn, and grain. It’s sweet but still pretty crisp and refreshing. This was better than expected. This is better than the average pale lager.

BeerRenter76 (828) - Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Estrella pours a standard lager yellow body with decent carbonation and a thin white cap. Aroma of grain and barley some metallic notes as well. Flavor was similar to the aroma with the metallic bite fading quickly and grain/ grassy flavor taking over later. Overall a pretty standard beer, probably tastes better in Barcelona.

Rhombic (110) - SPAIN - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle and draught. Clear pale golden colour with a decent head. Aroma is malty, paper-ish, OK but, as with most lagers, not really amazing. Flavour is malty and sweetish, quite nicely balanced, lacking a bit of complexity but otherwise fine. Body is medium, thin texture. There are worse lagers around.

Tried every format repeatedly. Don’t trash talk the battle beer of Barcelona. It’s light and nearly flavorless, maybe a slight taste of barley or maize. Very light bodied. It’s refreshing and enjoyable on a hot day. It’s a consistent, mass produced beer and as long as it’s cold and fresh I never think it’s unpleasant tasting. Nearly interchangeable with sparkling water. Maybe slightly worse than sparkling water but it does contain alcohol.

Bitek (439) - Warszawa, POLAND - AUG 27, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2016 Lekkie, słodowe, dość mocno wysycone. Na finiszu lekki kwasek. Goryczka delikatna.

Great refreshing beer. Not sure what all ya smokin, you probably getting old ass bottles or your taste buds got destroyed by obscene amounts of hops and alcohol. Don’t get me wrong I love IPAs but this is a great refreshing beer. Better then shit Budweiser or some Coors. Educate yourselves before giving bad review.

Quick3Beers (940) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 10, 2016
Pours an apple juice color from a bottle, sweetbread and rice pudding aroma and flavor, but in an almost sour skunky way, not a comforting way. Flavor is similar, very sweet. Nope.
