Bottle. High and creamy lastingt white head. Clear yellow body. Weak barley malt aroma with notes of apples and pears. Sweet barley malt flavor with notes of lemon and a bit of hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Fair aftertaste. markas101 (2482) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 15, 2009
50 cl can, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Very pale yellow with a frothy white head (probably my bad pour adding to the froth). Initial skunky aroma, once past that some sweet grains. Light body, Metallic at the sides of the chops, some heat on the finish, pretty average but certianly drinkable. RapeBeer (21) - Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2009
I am always skeptical of any Spaniard beer. Or Italian beer or French beer for that matter. These are wine countries and they have no business dabbling the the art of beer. This Estrella brew was, however, surprisingly above average. It looked great pouring out and despite a slight metallic taste (which disappeared after a sip or two), had a surprisingly neutral flavor. I don’t even know, really, why these Iberians (despite the fact that the brewery was founded by an Alsatian - so basically German) even bother brewing their own beers. Leave all European brewing to East of the Rhine. Not a bad beer by any standards, but since it is an import here in the states, it’s just not worth the high price for such a midland beer.

Pouring from a nice, red 500-ml can, I received a foamy white head that was probably about one-half inch thick above a clear, straw-coloured body. Aroma was grassy/mildly hopped, and the taste was not altogether different. Mouthfeel was adequate, with a hint of sweetness in the finish. I was pleasantly surprised with this one, overall.

500ml can 4.6% Estrella Damn BARCELONA Cerveza. I hope I’m rating this under correct beer. Poured clear gold with lasting chunky white head. Moderate sweet veggie-hop aroma. High carbonation, grainy favour with some surprising bitterness. Malty finish with a slight metallic aftertaste.

Golden pour with white head.
A watery bitter beer with some skunk, nothing great here. jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2009
2009-07-04. Crisp yellow body with a small white head. Aroma has some dry grainy malts, grassy/straw character to the hops. Modest hoppy bitterness over pale malts, bit of a grassy/straw character again. Average palate. Pretty dull. Can, from LCBO, Toronto thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2009
330mL bottle: Apperance is golden brown with slow fading white head, aroma is of pale malt slightly skunky, flavor is very bland but not bad just malt and carbonation. yarry (528) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2009
500ml can, 4.6% a/v
Pours very light straw gold, with a decent white head. Smells pretty "pilsnery", hoppy and light. The taste is pretty clean, though a bit lacking. A bit of noble hops kick in at the end, a decent summer beer to replace your corona with. Very clean, very clear, very nice. DerWeg (1695) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2009
500 ml can pours a freaking niagara falls size noisy head that looks fake-beer and smells a bit solvent-y. but aroma blandly pleasant with a bit of sweet fruit. Looks very clear and pale. Tastes fairly clean and fresh with a late bitter noble-hop bite, and a good sweetness in the body that’s actually fairly nice. Would be a great beach beer. On the very late aftertaste is a bit dry and soapy, would not drink very many for this reason alone.
