Estrella Galicia Sin Gluten / Gluten FreeEstrella Galicia Sin Gluten / Gluten Free
Notes: Una cerveza especial sin gluten con exactamente las mismas características sensoriales que la Estrella Galicia Especial.
Cerveza dorada y brillante. Excelente balance aromático entre las maltas y lúpulos. En boca ligeramente floral y herbal, de calidez moderada y con una intensa y prolongada sensación lupulada.

A gluten free beer with exactly the same characteristics as Estrella Galicia Especial.
Golden color. Clean and bright. Excellent aromatic balance between malts and hops. Lightly floral and herbal flavors, with a moderate warm mouthfeel, and an intense hoppy bitter taste that lingers in the mouth.

De Hipercor. En copa Teku. Tras cena. Una euro lager bien hecha y con el plus de no llevar gluten y no notarse ninguna diferencia sensorial con respecto a llevarlo

Last week I was adding and reviewing a couple of new Korean beers that I stumbled upon in London/UK. This week I found this beer in the eponymous Spanish deli Garcia's on Portobello Road, London W11 and see that although listed, to date it has no reviews/ratings.

L- Decent/reassuring amber colour, crystal clear, pours with a 5mm fine-bubble white head holding well. Ps still 3mm 15 mins later).
S- A light breadiness.
T- I find the hotter the place a beer is brewed often the more bland it is. I do get it, it's hot and refreshment is a priority before having your palate dazzled with flavour. Point there is that this being Spanish I was expecting it to be a generic/bland Euro-lager, BUT to my surprise it's not! It has some richness and yet also has a quite vibrant and bright hopping to it as well.
F- It's 5.5% and has a decent mouth-feel/richness/presence for that - blind-tasted I might have guessed the ABV% a touch higher than that, perhaps 5.8-6.0% ?
O- I think it's a well put together beer, good taste, hopping, CO2 etc, nicely balanced. There isn't any unique character about it that would make me look out for it again, but if offered one I'd happily say yes. Probably a good go-to/session beer if you live over in Spain. If buying elsewhere as an import[$] then there is less reason to make this one a regular.
