About Lagers 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.

Damm Brewery Voll-Damm Doble Malta Märzen
93 points
Brilliant medium deep amber color. Malty, minerally, chemical aromas of wet slate, ash cheese rind, and charred romaine with a round, soft, spritzy, medium body and an even, quick whole wheat cracker, dried leaves, dried fig cake, and rye spice finish. A sumptuous Marzen that rewards the palate with waves of flavor.
Damm Brewery Estrella Damm Pale Lager

Brilliant yellow color. Woody, perfumed, fresh, baked, floral aromas of corn on the cob, brioche, flower stems, and peach pit with an oily, vibrant, spritzy, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a breezy buttered baguette, mango skins, iceberg lettuce, and doughy finish. A fun, fruity Lager for everyday pleasure.
Damm Brewery Keler Pale Lager

Brilliant old gold color. Grassy, herbal, woody aromas of toasted banana and white muffin, roasted almond brittle, unlit cedar incense, and melon rind with a round, soft, spritzy, sweet light-to-medium body and a seamless, rapid fruit custard tart and radishes finish. A nice fruity Lager for sessions or lunch.
Damm Brewery Voll-Damm Doble Malta Märzen

Amber color. Boozy aromas and flavors of fresh cracked black pepper, banana fondant, floral syrup, and crispbread with sprouts with a satiny, crisp, effervescent, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a hot, interesting, breezy finish that shows notes of chamomile, honeydew, and charred nuts finish. A very boozy, malty Märzen that drinks like a Maibock.
