La Coruna, Spain
August 11, 2005
Spain) - We've pretty much been down this road before.
We've already had the unfortunate experience that is
Lager - truly the worst beer ever consumed. Seems
that Spanish landmark Estrella
Galicia, native of Barcelona, desperately wants
to steal the honor of "Worst Beer In The World"
from it's transatlantic rival.
Again, a lager that plain
old stinks. Really stinks. Crack the bottle and be ready
to tell the surrounding partiers that it wasn't you.
Perhaps the name translates to "Estrella Poots".
Pour this swill and look at the bland color and average
head performance. Take a sip and make that nasty face.
It's just a plain old torturous experience that no one
outside of prison should have to endure.
In a double-blind taste
test between Estrella and the scrapings of the septic
tank, one would be challenged to taste the difference.
Will it give you a buzz? We don't know. We couldn't
make it through more than two of these chilled swills.
In fact, in an act never before executed during the
Flight of The Hopper project, the writer actually dumped
his second one out into the sink. He regrets this and
will never do it again. Next time, he will make sure
it finds its way into the toilet where it belongs.
So, the burning question
is whether Estrella Galicia is worse than Native
Lager. Wow. Pretty close competition there. When
our journey is complete, we will taste-test these two
beers along with any other unfortunate zero-point scored
beers and determine a winner, er, loser. Until then,
consider them comparable wastes of fridge space.
