Not very Damm good
I was visiting a local international market today when I stumbled across a beer I'd never seen before: Estrella Damm.
Estrella Damm is a Spanish beer. Its packaging says it as a lager, which it is. If you go to Wikipedia, however, you discover that Estrella Damm is a "pilsener." Well, I'm here to tell you that Estrella Damm ain't no damn pilsener. (Hell, the picture on ED's Wiki page shows that it's a lager. So much for relying on Wikipedia for any-damn-thing.)
Estella Damm has a nice, deep color. It doesn't have a deep flavor, though, and that was disappointing. I didn't detect much hoppiness up front, but ED finished very, very bitter. And not a good kind of bitter. It kinda reminded me of Budweiser. Again, not good.
Needless to say, I purchased my first and last six-pack of Estella Damm lager today.
