I feel like I should tell you all a little about myself just so you have some idea of what sort of degenerate is maintaining this awful website. Here are some fun facts about me:

  • I’m on the Astronaut Diet: I eat nothing but Dippin’ Dots and Moon Pies.
  • I prefer Critters to Gremlins.
  • I’ve dumped a girl for not liking the song “Motown Philly“.
  • I write most of these reviews while drunk.
  • I stole the cookie from  the cookie jar.
  • Everything that I know about classic literature I learned from a Jack Russel Terrier named Wishbone.

Remember to check us out on Facebook and Twitter for updates and terrible jokes. If you share and like this over the various social media platforms I get to look at the page stats without shaking my head and switching over to whiskey for the rest of the day. Here’s the review.

Estrella Damm Daura

Estrella Damm Daura

Appearance: I’m not a great fan of pale lagers, but this is one of the finest specimens that I’ve seen in a long while. The head alone would give this a perfect score on appearance. Strong, foamy, long-lasting and it laces wonderfully down the glass. I can only imagine that this is fueled by the energetic carbonation that’s tame enough to not be distracting.

The beer itself has a fine color that lies somewhere between freshly cut straw and the hair of the blonde at the end of the bar. Perfect.

Smell: A bit muted. Sweet corn, grass, and a touch of hops. I’m getting something fruity, but I can’t place it. Seems a bit off.

Taste: A bit of a let down, really. The mouthfeel is fine; crisp, with a slightly-less-than-medium body. The actual taste is lacking in power and feels very generic. The sweet corn comes through in a nice way, but not much else does.

I’d love to taste those hops, to get a bit of bitterness, to get something in the way of an aftertaste, but there’s not a lot going on here. Very boring.

Overall: Appearances count for a lot with me, but taste is king when it comes to rating these beers. I’d normally give this a much lower score, but it scores a lot of aesthetic points. 68/100.

Up Next: A nice IPA. I’ve already had it, so I know it’s good.
