Tasting notes:

Created to satisfy the most discerning palates, Mahou Cinco Estrellas is made ​​with the highest quality varieties of hops and yeast, which shapes its characteristic body and flavour.

Mahou Cinco Estrellas is known for its golden colour and characteristic bitter, moderate and elegant, balanced flavour that lingers on the palate.

The Mastery of Mahou beer is in its creamy texture. A smooth and compact foam is the perfect way to crown a Mahou and achieve a master beer.

The quality of its creamy texture reflects its perfect production process. When pouring a beer, its froth, in addition to improving its appearance, works as a lid, it retains the flavour and taste and prevents the beer’s contact with air, ensuring the beer does not go stale or flat.
