In some cities they’re already starting to put up Christmas lights and for our part, in keeping with tradition, we’re launching a new, original lager for winter, our Estrella de Navidad (Christmas Star).

On this occasion we’re presenting a recipe with lower alcohol content but which maintains the classic intensity of winter flavours and aromas, making Estrella de Navidad the perfect beer for this time of year.

This year’s recipe is made up of Pilsen malts and roasted barley grown in Galicia, as well as 2 varieties of hops (our classic Galician Nugget hops and Relax hops).

We hope you’ll enjoy it, Cheers!

Appearance Deep, bright amber coloured, with an ivory beer head, good retention and excellent lacing.
Taste Encontramos un comienzo ligeramente dulce en boca, dando paso a un largo final seco y ligeramente amargo. Destacan por igual las maltas tostadas y los lúpulos, dejando un postgusto tanto torrefacto como herbal de manera equilibrada.
Aroma Complex, pleasing aroma with subtle hints of sponge cake and dried fruit. With roasted overtones from the malts and notes of caramel and cinnamon. The freshness of the hops is expressed in the floral, herbal notes that round off the aromatic profile.
