I was interested to taste this as my brother-in-law’s fiancee is a coeliac. It’s ok, but I detected a sour after-taste that (obviously) I didn’t like. It’s acceptable enough as a lager

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear medium gold with a thick, soapy white head that shrinks to a fat collar and leaves tons of lace rings. Aroma: toasted white bread, grass, floral honey. Taste: sweet and grainy, with notes of pie crust and graham crackers, with light hay undertones. Finish: crisp, clean, refreshing, and slightly sweet. Notes: I don’t get the hate. This was a drinkable, well-balanced beer. Unlike many of the gluten-free beers I’ve tried, this one actually had some depth of character. In fact, I never would have guessed it was gluten free.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2013 bright golden colour with minimal head, its taste is highly dominated by sweetcorn-like sweetness (it might be because of the rice it contains) with some minimal bitterness; despite that it contains only 5.4% alcohol, this is not fully masked by malt and hop and can be felt - it is not so positive in this case...worse, than average lager

Bottle. Pours clear pale golden with unstable white head. Faint aroma of hop with a sweet note. Watery mouthfeel. Bitter-sweet taste of hop and grain. Rough finish. Not bad but nothing special.

Bottle split at tasting. Really mild light body. Sweet and non-enjoyable. Lemony dishwater macro.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Estrella Damm Daura has a medium-to-thick, soapy, white head and a clear, bubbly, golden appearance. There is not much lacing left on the glass, though. The aroma is of sweet, pale lager (malt, bread, sugar), and the flavor is the same, with maybe some sugary corn syrup and a touch of hops. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Estrella Damm Daura finishes crisp, clean refreshing, dry, and highly drinkable. Overall, I was quite surprised with how well they pulled this off. I think it’s excellent! RJT

Bottle provided by Huhzubendah. Poured a clear yellow-straw color with a tiny white head. Aroma is sweet notes - light apples. Sweet cereal notes. Otherwise unimpressive.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crystal clear and light yellow in color, with a half inch of white head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. The aroma is subtle, but offers some light scents of malt and pilsner. Very light in body. Smooth feel and goes down easy. Lacking complexity, but easy to throw back a pint or two. Just a slight sweetness, with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Overall, a good choice if you are seeking a gluten free beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
355mL found for $2. Pours clear straw. Soapy weak lacing. Nose is very skunky all the way. Some sugar and pineapple. Sweetened white grape juice. Yellow apple. Taste is papery, stale watered down pineapple juice, spicy white grapes. Definitely import lager swill but not too offensive. I don't mind skunky beer. But beware. My rating: 1.7 Fiancé rating: 1.3
