2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, at Goya Restaurant, Victoria, London. The second unexpected scoop of the day. Full gold colour. Pretty standard pale lager fare. Perhaps a little more flavour than some - touches of soft malt and a little bite. Not much aroma. Maybe some corny edges. Clean and quite refreshing. Iy may not be saying a lot, but one of the better Spanish lagers I’ve tried.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
From a Beers of the World sampler box. Hazy golden beer with a thin white head that is quickly gone. Aroma is faint, primarily of cheap sweet malts. Flavor is not good. Its barely drinkable, but not happily so. Some bitterness which offsets the poor malt flavor. Sweet corn and adjunct flavors. Low carbonation, feels a little flat. While Spain produces some excellent wines and sherries, it’s a risky proposition drinking a beer brewed in Spain. This one is a loser. I couldnt even finish a single. Drain Pour.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Bottled. Compact and adherent foam, good persistence. Shining yellow color, much clear and bubbly. Light and watery scent, light alcohol and malty notes. Simple and pleasant taste. Determined and extended bitter on the end. Balanced even if lightly lean.

Estrella Galicia has very little to no aroma. The color is golden with a white head. The taste is slightly bitter but overall light with a weak finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale golden with a big-bubbled, fluffy white head. Delicate aromas, slightly lactic with light hopping. Mild flavor with burnt woodsiness and an herbal hop finish. Nothing special.

Sampled from bottle, ’enjoyed’ with tapas at The Hill, STL. A simple continental lager that should only be enjoyed with food and not drank for the simple pleasure of enjoying a good beer. Nicely bitter subtle traces of noble hops in the aroma and flavor. Decent malt backbone gives this light-bodied lager a bit more complexity. Moderately carbonated, at best with a pretty clean finish.

Unless you like that funny aftertaste, that is...

not bad, but really light. I wonder if it has aything to it being a pale lager. some malts little hops really smooth and refreshing. Golden in color with a thin white head.
