2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught in some dodgy bar in dodgy ex pat haven on Costa del Sol. One of the better spanish beers I’ve thus far tasted, but frankly that ain’t sayin much brudda. The note of bitterness saves it from utter mediocrity and makes it just about drinkable. Just stick to the wine in spain methinks.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Cafe Ba Ba Reeba in the Las Vegas Fashion Show Mall. Pour is darker golden with a ton of carbonation small bubbles. Small white head collapses right away. Aroma dusty dirty, mineral mild hop aroma. Chemical dirtiness shadows the nice earthy hops. Taste is a lot cleaner, more bright mineral earth hops and watery malt. Nice mineral element to the aftertaste. Reminds me of a Stella quite a bit. Palate is light, watery brief - taste is clean and refreshing enough.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Unimpressive beer, very pale yellow body, almost no foam and the scent was very weak malt and little hop. The taste was slim to none, very weak lager, with quite a lot of water. Aftertasteless, almost, save for little malt and little hop. Nothing absolutly wrong, but no justification for much more than 1.7.

Nt bad, a little too corky in taste and bitter but not floral. Can be annoying after several bottles.

12 oz. bottle. Trade with Daknole. Huh. Beer-wise, I’ve never been to Spain (but I kind of like the music) even though World Market has Estrella Damn. "Best before MAR10," I presume that’s the year? Bottle presents the usual, slightly oxidized, light beer smell. Pours bright yellow and a rocky head. In the glass, offers a bit more oxidation, a b it of malt, but a clear trace of adjunct (that would be the "maize" in the description. Taste is regular pale macro lager. Let’s recognize this can be delicate style that doesn’t travel the ocean well. Getting more corn in the taste as I go, a little close to Old Style, in fact. Hop bill is standard and undistinguished. A shame. Wonder if there’s a suitable hop-growing region in Spain that would give this some terrior. But this also is bringing up some fusels that could precipitate a hangover. In fact, it’s starting to taste more like a malt liquor toward the end. Strange for a beer with such an average alcohol count.

I am from the city where it is made and I love its taste.
Maybe this is because I am used to it but I love it.
