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. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 27, 2010
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. TBone (18561) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2010
Bottled 330ml (KKK Kamppi, BB 07/2011)quiznoaz (310) - Arizona, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Golden color, small white head. Grainy, corn-aroma in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Sweet corn malty, a bit grainy, harsh finish (alcohol, barley?). Some kind of twisted yeastyness also. Exactly a kind of lager you could expect from Estrella.
Light yellow, no head to speak of when delivered. It was bitter, but not a strong bitter (then again, there wasn’t a lot of any taste). Meh. EricE (1372) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Really not a bad beer. Biscuity and bready malt flavor. Lightly sweet with a good amount of hop bitterness on the finish. Easy to drink.

Can, gift from Spain. Yellow color with small white head. Watery aroma, maybe some popcorn. Taste, corn, with watery finish. Crap. Hermod (8517) - Vantaa, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2010
33cl bottle. Poured golden color with a thin, white head, not much lacing. Aroma is sweet, vegetables and corn. Flavor similar, quite unpleasant. Finish is short, some bitterness. Very light in body. Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 20, 2010
THOUGHTS: Not bad for being an imported pale lager. I mean, it’s still crap, but it was some of the best crap I’ve ever had. It would be nice after mowing the lawn.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a flat, light to medium yellow with a large, white head that mostly diminished, but kept a nice sheet for a while and left excellent lacing. The aroma had grain, grassy hops, vegetable and cooked corn. The initial flavor was slightly sour and slightly sweet; while the finish was sour and lightly bitter with a short duration. There was grain, vegetable, corn, grassy hops and sour malt. The light body was a bit watery with fairly fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic and lightly astringent finish, but there really wasn’t much of a finish at all.

(bottle, 33cl, as Estrella Galicia Cerveza Especial, 5.5% abv) Clear, golden colour with a blond mid-sized foamy head. Dusty malty nose with notes of canned corn. Light-sweet and slightly sour and tart flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Corny malty taste with veggie notes; slightly sweet and sour fruity finish with a very restrained bitterness. Hard to finish. 01.XI.10 liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 29, 2010
The usual watery macro lager. clear golden and bubbly. White medium head. not sure if it has any difference to the usual Estrella.
