12HundredBaud (262) - Sausalito, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
25 cl bottle from a local supermarket. It pours a clear golden liquid with a small bubbly white head, that manages to last throughout the beer, leaving a little lacing. The aroma is herbal spicy, mainly hops, but with a hint of roasted malt. It tastes maltier, but with the same hoppy touch that you can smell. It is somehow sweet, and medium bitter. Averagedly carbonated and smooth, it also feels a little watery (not much). Kind of long bitter finish, with a nice aftertaste. Very refreshing. The presentation is very good (bottle ok, the crown cap rocks!). One of the best commercial spanish pale lagers.

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 31, 2011
Golden colour with a quick disappearing white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some fruity notes. Taste is plain but with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. A little unbalanced and plain but reasonable.

ronaldtheriot (1859) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Estrella Galicia has a thin, white head, and a clear, golden appearance, with low to medium carbonation. Scant lacing is left behind. The aroma and taste are predominately of bread, with some hop spice noticeable on the back end of the sip. Mouth-feel is light to moderate, and Estrella Galicia finishes refreshing and not as dry as American lagers. Overall, even though this is a rather mundane European pale lager, it is enjoyable, and think it’s a very nice beer. Try it! RJT

BeerBaboon (2024) - FINLAND - JAN 2, 2011
Kultainen olut niukalla, valkoisella vaahdolla. Maltainen, maissinen ja hieman humalainen aromi. Maltainen, hieman makea ja kevyen humaloitu maku. Aavistuksen vetinen, mutta ok lager. Kertaostos minulle.

Jonb5 (521) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2010
330 ml bottle in an Estrella Galicia flute. Tiny head, pale colour, sparkling wine bubbles, clear. Not much of an aroma. Sweetish malty taste, goes down well, easier on the palate than a german pils. Would be good in spain. It’s a decent simple brew, slightly under rated.

11.2oz bottle in a shaker. Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma sort of toasted malts typical of a pale lager. Flavor a bit more toasted than most pale lagers. I would rather drink this than most pale lagers.
