This beer became one of my favorites during my trip in Catalunya.... however, my friends didn't share my opinion. Brewed according to the alsace method which in my opinion means that champagne yeast was used in this brew.

A: Very pale yellow color with a very tiny head that is not worth mentioning. Very tiny bubbles in this beer and that is not the last resemblance to champagne.

S: A very light grainy/hoppy smell. That's all.

T: Champagne like again. Very low in grains. Some nice fruity notes that are mainly pear, some citrus. A small hint of bitterness.

M: You've guessed it... high carbonation, like champagne. Thin body, pleasant dry finish.

D: As a beer this may be dissapointing and to thin, but I like it for it's unique style and don't want to compare it to my favorite quad style, which makes no sense. So, a particular beer that matched perfectly with the great weather in Catalunya.

This is the third best beer I had while in Barcelona. It has a very classy looking label, sort of Michelob looking. Due to the label and being in a bottle, I had raised expectations. They were met.

This is a very solid helles style beer. Crisp, a little light on the hops. Not the best beer I ever had, but I had much worse while here.

Not a beer to say no to.

Damm's high end beer. Bottle says ABV 4.8%. I wouldn't say it's euro strong lager, it's more of a middle ground between an american lager and the euro strong lager. neither of which are my favorite, but for the style..

Looks not that impressed, fizzy rough head dies very quickly, continues bubbling a lot a looks very fizzy. golden apricot and completely clear. little lace.

smells like an average lager, light malt and a little alcohol.

taste is pretty good- good balance between sweetness and dryness, touch of bitter, not exciting but well balanced i would say.

mouthfeel is nice, not too fizzy, leaves the mouth with a slight aftertaste but feeling very dry. very smooth.

First All-Malt Lager I’ve tasted in Spain and I am not disappointed.

Appearance: very nice and classy bottle. Bright clarity with a medium gold colour. The head was white, well formed but not very large. Moderate head retention, leaving a lot of lacing when it fades.
Aroma: very agreeable malty aroma with some fruit notes.
Taste: malty and slightly sweet flavour with a bitterness that becomes stronger after a while.
Mouthfeel: smooth, good carbonation, low alcoholic strength (4.8% ABV), light body.
Finish: fairly long finish, which starts sweet and quickly turns to a nice bitterness.

Overall: Interesting beer, a little balanced towards the malts but nevertheless very enjoyable. Looking forward to taste it again.

330ml bottle. Footed Pilsner glass. Golden yellow color, crystal appearance. White, close, fairly well retention crown. Floral aromas, hints of biscuit malt & slightly sugary touch. Sweet & fruity flavor, notes of biscuit malt. Light body, lively carbonation. Smooth malty mouthfeel. Slightly bitterness in the middle lingers into the finish. Easy drinkability.

Amber coloured body with a shallow but dense head and sweet bread-like nose.

First impression could be a mild Lager from Munich, creamy and mild.

Aftertaste lacks precision: The hops remains in the background and cannot compete with the malty sweetness resulting in an rather heavy overall impression.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Bright golden color with a thin fluffy head with medium retention.
Elegant aroma of biscuit malt and herbal hops. Hints of oranges. Better than expected.
Malt sweetness, with mild citrusy and herbal notes. Hints of apple, white wines and cream crackers. Some diacetyl, but it does not bother. Aftertaste with medium dryness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
Very smooth beer and easy to drink, but that shows its malty flavor. It is much better than mostly Adjunct Lagers from macros brewers, meaning it should please a broad range of beer drinkers looking for a mellow beer.

The special seasonal release from Damm was in reality a big enough disappointment. we looked for it near Picasso's house in the Gothic City of Barcelona, only to pay too much for an estrella spin-off, if only slightly more bitter at the end.

I felt like tasting an Aguila Imperial. no more words for this one.
