look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

250ml bottle as a gift from Salou, Spain:
Clear amber colour with a thin lacing for a head that is slightly foamy and white in colour.

Sweet with some sticky malts & caramel. There is a lager type aroma coupled with hint of alcohol, some hops & spice.

Caramel & lots of malts, sweet with toffee & a light alcohol taste with subtle fruits as well. The taste is fairly basic but drinkable.

Sweet with a sticky mouthfeel and with a fairly thick body and medium carbonation that proceeds a dry finish.

Malt driven beer (obviously) with a strong caramel taste with some alcohol present throughout. Drinkable but not all that great and another reason why I'm not really a fan of this style of beer.

Girlfrend brought this back from Barcelona. Kind of excited to drink a Märzenbier so I'm opening this one first out of the whole haul.

A- Very nice looking bottle. Crystal clear gold with TONS of bubbles rising throughout. Almost makes it look heterogenous. Good retention of the greyish head. Good amount of lacing.

S- Awww. Smells skunked and corny right from the bottle. Poured into SA perfect glass. Very sweet artificial caramel which kindof smells nice but just not right.Some dusty alcohol.

T- Skunkiness seems to have dissipated. Nice caramel maltiness which ends up better than what the smell hinted. Couldn't find the bitterness in the first few sips but it ended up growing and tasting a bit nasty and artificial. The subtle hop touch adds a lemony character. Alcohol is a little solventy. The bitterness really sticks around the back of the throat like something you shouldn't be ingesting.

M- Very smooth. Low carbonation (did it all leave in the pour?) Not dry.

O- Had this straight out the fridge but it still tasted kind of dirty. I'm not sure I could drink very much of this.

The joke goes that when on holiday in Spain only two lines are important, the first being: "Dos cerveza por favor", and the second: "Dos mas". So I discovered this brew while on holiday in Barcelona, and this particular bottle was broght to Amsterdam by friends.

The history of this beer seems to be that German brewers moved to Barcelona and then started to brew various styles. The Voll Damm (pron. "boy damm") is Deutsches Märzenbier. The brewers used a double dose of malt in the recipe ("se duplicó la cantidad de MALTA EN LA RECETA" as it says verbatim on the label) so hence the "Voll" (full).

My 25 cl bottle showed the BB date as 06/06, but since I kept it in the fridge it was still OK. It poured an amber color, almost no head (maybe because of said date) and just a few bubbles. The smell is strong and sweet, almost caramel. It has some bitterness but is very pleasant and drinks easy. The alcohol is noticable but not on the foreground. There's just a little carbonisation.

It has a nice centimeter of foamy head on top of a clear, medium-dark amber beer.

The aroma is quite strong and malty, with a hint of caramel in the background.

The flavour is slightly sweet. The alcohol comes through quite noticeably, and it has a kind of breakfast cereal aftertaste.

Overall, this is an okay offering if you're looking for a strong beer. I wouldn't seek it out back home though... It's probably pretty expensive.

33cl Green can, brought back from Majorca by my daughter and her husband, one of three different beers from this brewery.

Best before May 2011 it was drank and reviewed mid Nov 2010. Poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru stemmed glass tulip.

Looked good, copper body of clear beer, on top a large foaming head of a light tan/creamy colour. Some good lacing as the beer sank.

Malt sweetness in the nose, molasses/treacle/toffee, nice.

I tend to go for maltier beers more than the hoppier ones, but this was over the top malty even for me. It was a harsh tasting malt with a really dry and metallic aftertaste. I don't think it was hop bitterness, but I suppose it could have been, anyway I didn't like it. The alcohol was also 'in your face' from start to finish, not a pleasant drink in my eyes what so ever.

Strange beer, and not one I'd try again in a hurry. Looks and smells really good, pity about the rest.

Somewhat oily in its structure. The first mouth looks just a little first before spicy be easy to drink. However, the finish awakens the senses and endures in the palace where they will mark traces of peanuts and bread and popcorn. Barley is also present and a great way as it is expressed by various peanut fumes. Corn is also there, either in the nose or in the body.

Enjoyed many times. Amber color, crystal clear appearance. White froth, brief crown. Sweet, sugary, mildy toasted, adjunct cereal & spicy aromas. Malty, harsh alcoholic & bitter upfront. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Honey & spicy notes. Herbal sweet/bitter finish. ABV is well felt.

I guess Voll Damm's double malt gives it a flavour edge over the mediocre Estrella. in all fairness, it's not too bad.

The beer profiles as a munchen helles because of the slightly darker toned golden colour and the scarce head it boosts at first. the smell is clearly malty, and I guess that's what you expect when the beer is sold for being double-malt.

the taste was actually quite decent, a sweet strong euro lager type with a decent bitter ending. nothing too fancy I mussay, but still, on to be drunk a few times in beer-deprived south Spain.
