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.

Fruit and Specialty Beers

Damm Brewery Daura Damm Gluten-Free Lager
93 points
Gold color. Aromas of triscuit cracker, pullman loaf, and onion roll with a supple, soft, effervescent, dryish light body and an even, cheery lemon pound cake, egg white, and orange blossom finish. A category-defying, clean gluten-free lager that refreshes.
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.
