look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear pale yellow in color with significant amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass quickly and some faint hints of light golden yellow. The beer has a half finger tall foamy bright white head that reduces to a thick film fairly evenly covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet grainy + corn malts with minimal notes of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet grain and corn malts with a touch of bready malts. There is also a very light flavor of grassy hops which contribute just a touch of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: Light to medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: For the style (Euro Pale Lager where a lot of the beers are forgettable), this is a pretty enjoyable brew and one that I could put down a couple of in a sitting - pairs well with foods such as bison burger.

A: Pours a fizzy yellow brew - maybe a hint of amber coming through the glass. Crystal clear. Large head bubbles. Some spotted lacing.

S: Light, airy, lemon aroma.

T: Tastes great for a lager. A nice clean and citrusy taste. Good amount of malting to sweeten up the finish. Not bitter at all.

M: Light and clean.

O: Good lager brew - traditional lager flavor but with some of the citrus it gives it a bit more than your traditional lager. Sessionable.

Moritz pours straw yellow with a decent amount of foam on top. There's a skunky malt aroma with a faint trace of hops. It hits the mouth astringent and there's a fleeting bitter taste bathed in alcohol. Overall, I think it's an average (if not slightly below average) lager from an extraordinary city that doesn't really do as much as it could.

I thought that Estrella Damm was the beer of Barcelona, but it looks that it has company. Here's Moritz, brewing since 1856, which I believe is a much older brewery than Damm. Coming out of a 330 ml bottle, on to the beer:

Looking at it and you see a translucent straw yellow color with visible bubbles running through the beer. The head forms thick and soapy, slowly dropping a thin lace, leaving spots of lace around the glass. The nose is sweet. Cream sweet. There's some grass there too to keep the sweetness from going crazy.

I'm glad to reoprt that this is not an adjuncty mess like Damm. Unfortunately, it has another problem; being too sweet and fruity. A blind taste and I might have said ale, as this does not taste like a golden lager. Cream sweetness hits first, then a vague fruitiness has its say. Wood shaving add antother flavor. The body is light and almost watery, and the carbonation doesn't reaction much on the palate, just uninspiring.

A little different from plain old lager. It's interesting, but its sweet aspect is not balanced well. I've had doppelbocks that are better balanced.

330ml bottle. I had a wheelchair-bound woman from Spain tell me a few months ago that this stuff was the proverbial shit. Who am I to question such nationalistic fervour?

This beer pours a clear pale golden colour, with one finger of broadly foamy off-white head, which leaves a low, slowly ebbing wash of painted lace around the glass as it hastily settles.

It smells of mild, sweet bready malt, kind of pastry-like, a bit of sugared apple and pear, and soft, earthy, musty hops. The taste is bready, somewhat biscuity malt, with a nice even sweetness, a subtle orchard fruitiness, and underwhelming grassy, leafy hops.

The carbonation is quite subtle, and non-intrusive, the body a decently hefty medium weight, with a general, pleasant smoothness. It finishes on the sweet side, the bakery-abutting malt still happy to provide the main flourish as things peter out.

An agreeable enough pale lager, with more cream or blonde ale characteristics than is the norm, but hey, who's complaining - you get a relative buttload (that's metric, for you Yanks) more bang for your buck, even with the dear import prices around here.
