    • PLATO DEGREE: 13º P
    • ALCOHOL CONTENT: 5,5% ALC. VOL.
    • IDEAL SERVING TEMPERATURE: 4-5º C.

    An unpasteurised lager that is transported directly from our warehouses to the point of sale. Water from the city of A Coruña, two-row malt (Pilsen and roasted), corn, and Nugget and Perle Hallertau hops. Selected yeast from Hijos of Rivera. Bright, golden lager. With well-balanced aromas between malt and hops. Its documented freshness and the distribution process provide a smooth mouthfeel that improves its characteristics as session beer. As it is unpasteurised, it requires refrigerated transport by means of a network of specialised vehicles and own personnel. In the breweries and in the trucks, the characteristic tanks are kept refrigerated and maintain the same carbon levels as in our factory warehouses. Its freshness and these particular characteristics give it its own sensory attributes that make it a different beer.

    Estrella Galicia celebrates Christmas every year with its consumers by bottling a special and limited edition of its most characteristic beer. To produce it, hops cultivated on Hijos de Rivera lands in the Centro de Investigaciones Agrarias de Mabegondo in A Coruña (Mabegondo Centre of Agricultural Investigations) are used. In recent years, the label has been made of thermosensitive material and changes colour when the product reaches optimum drinking temperature. The bottle is easy-open.

    Estrella de Navidad is a Special beer, 100% malt with a characteristic pale colour. It has an intense bright gold colour with a stable head and has a characteristic staying power. There is a large amount of fine bubbles. It has an intense malt taste with hints of honey. Its flavour is smooth, a little spiced and slightly sweet due to the amount of malt but with a balanced finish between the bitterness of the hops and the sweetness of the malt.
