Brewsday Tuesday: Estrella Damm

July 24, 2012

I was in the package store this evening looking for something interesting.  Walking back towards the register I noticed a stack of Estrella Damm. The last time I had that beer was when I was in Barcelona, Spain in 2000.  It was selling for $3.99 a six pack and I decided to grab some based upon sheer nostalgia.  Here are my thoughts.

Name: Estrella Damm

Brewed by: Damm S.A.

Location: Barcelona, Spain

Style/ABV: American Adjunct Lager / 5.2%

Appearance: Pours a bright straw yellow with a three finger fluffy white head that slowly disappears .  A decent amount of lacing is present as the beer is consumed.

Smell: Some bready malts and a hint of grass.

Taste: Bready malts, grass in the middle with a bitter dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body with heavy carbonation.

Overall: This beer brought back memories of Barcelona, Spain.  I had an amazing time on that trip, and consumed many of these beers within the city. Estrella Damm is a decent beer and would be perfect on a hot day.  I would not hesitate to grab another six pack at the discount price of $3.99.

Final Grade: C
