I just wrote a review for an Argentine beer and thought of calling its homeland the land of empenadas. Turns out the origin of empenadas is Spain, not Argentina as I once thought. Then I was inspired....Spain....lucky for me, I have a Spanish beer to drink! Or is it a Catalan beer? My brother was the inspiration for the purchase of the beer, as it was one of the beers he liked when he was abroad in Europe last year. Too many stories, not enough beer, on to it:
Looking good. The clean as a whistle body with a dazzling array of bubbles and polished pale gold provide a treat to the eyes. Head formation is an inch thick, sooapy-creamy in texture, and putting up some healthy lace. Reality hits hard in the nose, however. Photo-chemicals dominate, light corn, a little pale sweetness. It's funny how all these Euro lager types can look so good but smell uninspired.
Nope, still too chemically. The base flavor of sweet corn and grab bag pale malt would provide a decent taste score if it didn't have a strong chemically aftertaste and buzzy carbonation that reminds me of times that I used to curl my tongue around phone jacks as a young child (was that a run-on sentence?). At least it still looks attractive.
The elmblem of Estrella Damm is in the shape of a stop sign. Perhaps it's a hint of what to do should you pick up a bottle.
