Served on tap at Mulligan's in Hoboken, NJ.

A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with moderate to significant amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall bright white head that quickly reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer, a thick patch, and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant lacing is observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of grain adjunct malts with lighter hints of rice and corn adjunct malts. There is also a moderate presence of grassy hops. Starts out sweet and finishes with some light bitterness.

T: The flavors of the adjunct malts are quite present (grain, rice, and corn) along with a very light hint of citrus. Also, there is a light bitterness from the grassy hops.

M: Light bodied with a heavy amount of carbonation.

O: This beer is easy to drink and quite sessionable. The beer is not anything special but it was sessionable and seemed to go down quite well during the Euro game with my cornish pastie.

This is a tasty beer with a hint of sweetness. A good balance between a light sweet maltiness and dry hoppiness to quench a thirst for a meal. A light golden brown hue. Good clarity. Good medium carbonation for easy drinking. I think the beer really rather fitting of the Spanish culture and food. A very good compliment of the wonderful cuisin of the land. This is not a big splash, but I do not understand some of the lower marks some have thrown against this beer. I find Estrella to be of fine quality.

This beer goes well with a Euro Soccer match, dontcha think?

A good beer with a thick head. Golden and clear.
Not much smell but a good taste. It starts with a medium-hard bitter flavor that is just equilibrated at final by the malt with a little fruity acid.
Good post-final with a sweet bitterness. Refreshing and nice tasty.

Drunk in my Mallorcan holiday hotel on my executive balcony minutes before dinner.
Decent continental Germaniclike nose. Medium gold, bald to whispy head.
A handful of reasonable lines of bead with some reasonable length and some chewy hoppiness ending with a degree of bite. Good core strength for what it is which pushes outward.
Almost good and better that the other usual Spanish offerings.

crystal clear golden color with a foamy white head. retention is above average for the style and there seems to be a bit of lacing going on. little sweetness in the nose. light malts and grains. not much else. nothing offensive. i like that there isnt any metal smell. the taste is where i think it fails. its a little off balance. too much artificial tasting sweetness and not enough hop profile. if they toned down the sweetness it would get a better grade. kinda reminds me of dog bit high gravity lager. Mouth feel is average. medium bodied with bordering high carbonation. This stuff is typical I guess. I know its an American Adjunct Lager but I had high hopes for some reason. oh well. No reason to ever purchase this again.

Estrella Damm has a very thick, white head and a clear, straw appearance, with lots of streaming bubbles and ample lacing. The aroma is of sweet, bready malt and clean water, and the taste is of lightly-toasted cracker, sugar, water, and bitter hops. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Estrella Damm finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and dry. This beer is a clear winner.
