Bottle. Malts and corn in the aroma, light yellow color with a thin head. I noticed the corn in the flavor, but not in an off-putting way. It quite refreshing and went well with the pizza I was eating at the time. I think this could be a good session beer on a hot afternoon.

As a joker of the game I have to say Estrella Galicia is well above the Jack, Queen, King and Ace. It brings back long memories of the Kingdom of Galicia and the Condado Portucalense - Paradox reference. Unfortunately the Oliver lad does not find this beer to be a treat at all. Overall 20 escudos out of 20

Chopper925 (176) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle. Clear straw yellow color, small, white, lingering head. Aroma is fruity, grassy, nice. Taste is light sweet, with a decent bitterness and a light sour note. Medium to thin texture, with a fresh carbonation. Aftertaste is somewhat bread, malt and grass. Quite drinkable, not bad at all, also nothing special.

Bottle. Golden pour with a frothy head. Hay, corn, wheat, sweat, hay, grass and metal. Meh.

Abio (1628) - Waasland, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2014
A plain pilsener. Nothing to get excited about, but in my opinion slightly better as a lot of the Belgian macro Pilseners.

Brainiac (159) - Riga, LATVIA - OCT 21, 2014
0.5l can from The province of Galicia. Usual pale lager aroma. Little bitterish on the tongue. Fairly long aftertaste for a pale lager, its cool.

GuideDogSaint (402) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 17, 2014
330ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours golden with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon with some malt. Finish is on the bitter side. Overall better than I was expecting.

PapaVillum (493) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2014
33 cl, flaske, 5,5 % ABV, købt i SuperBest ved Gunnar Nu Hansens Plads på Østerbro, 30. september 2014. Gyldenbrun og filtreret/klar Pale Lager med 1 1/2 cm offwhite-farvet skumtop. Aroma: rugbrød (rug), malt, kælderaroma, hø og skunky. Overraskende god smag omend vi er ovre i pilsner-type øllet. God balance mellem sødme og bitterhed med en tydelig rugmaltssmag. Opsummering: let til middel sødme, middel bitter og zero sur. Kroppen er middel fyldig med en oily konsistens. Øllet er karboneret på et medium niveau. Afslutningen er medium bitter og middel af længde. Helt klart én af de bedre spanske øl, jeg har smagt, og på ferie ville jeg ikke være skuffet over ad- og tilgangen til denne.
