I spotted this cheapie in a discount market around the corner, so my expectations weren't to high in the beginning.

The body has a clear golden color. Intense fresh hoppy smell.
Tastes a lot like alcohol without getting too annoying - it is even warming!
Finish is spicy with a lot of hops in the very end.

All in all I'm positively surprised! (345 characters)

Quite the forgettable brew, not a pain but quite the characterless marketing ploy.

Presentation: 33 cl can. Diagonal name branding over a light cream stripe with a text-pattern grey background, which includes references to the graphic identity of the old recipe that it is representing. Text in Basque and Spanish making reference to the German brewmasters based in Donosti that gave inspiration to this take on a brew from the original 1890 brewery. Notes best by date (03/11), malted barley as an ingredient, and German method. Shows Alc. by Vol. (6,5%) Served in a tall beer glass.

A - Light yellow pour with a generous frothy head, good retention and some touches of lacing.

S - Light grainy nose, with a faint hoppy touch. Correct and forgettable, but with no offensive touch.

T - Generic grainy touch, bready with a faint hoppy sense, very blah.

M - Light body with low carbonation. Feels to have some malty density in the palate but it is a slightly heavy water sense with such a small carbonated character, tingly in the finish trying to rescue it but rather insufficient overall.

D - It is so indistinct that one could be distracted and drink it. But actually it is very forgettable and there is nothing to it. It should be easy to find something more exciting behind any bar in the Basque Country or elsewhere. In fact, for such a heartless brew the unusually high Alc. might be the only gimmick going for it if that is what the crowd is expecting from it. Ultimately it is also a deterrent, this should be a session beer but instead it is a 6.5%!

Notes: Quite an aggressive and empty marketing ploy from Damm España, which actually seems to be their strongest asset... Opportunistic use of the reference to a Basque recipe created by German brewmasters in Donosti to launch a campaign stressing the Basque qualities of a product brewed outside the Basque Country by a macro brewery. Not that there is much else to chose from at the local level but there are far more genuine offerings in terms of their local kudos, such as Pagoa, than this one. Damm on this one has not even made a cosmetic effort to have a small brew plant in the Basque Country to save face, which even Heineken does... (2,209 characters)
