About Fruit  and  Specialty Beers from Spain
Beer in Spain lags far behind wine in terms of production and what is brewed is often acceptable beer from one of a handful of commercial breweries. Specialty beers do exist, but licensing technicalities have kept this industry down. What is produced is of very good to excellent quality, examples include amber lagers, bocks and pale ales.

Top Picks for Spain

Fruit and Specialty Beers

Daura Gluten-Free Lager
92 points
Pale golden yellow color. Grassy, clean aromas of arepa, fresh cotton, and bakery bread with a soft, shy, finely carbonated, dryish light body and a graceful, fleeting sourdough bread crust, lemon cookie, chalk, and cornmeal finish. Refreshingly light and smooth, an excellent gluten-free option that would appeal to any beer drinker.
Damm Brewery Daura Gluten-Free Märzen
88 points
Amber color. Aromas of lemon balm, rice cracker, and corn husk with a soft, effervescent, dryish light body and a tingling, interesting, breezy nickel, pepper, navel orange pith, and light caramel finish. A great gluten-free beer that has a clean, slightly bitter finish.
TORO Sherry Barrel Aged Ale
83 points
Dark copper color. Aromas and flavors of spiced cherries and raisins, caramel fudge, and hint of playdoh and gum with a round, bright, finely carbonated, dryish medium body and a peppery, uncommon, snappy finish that shows notes of caramelized fruits and nuts, melted wax and rubber, and pepper finish. A lively, waxy barrel-aged beer.
