This was always the beer to have when we went for an imported 6-pack. It is interesting that is rates so poorly given that, literally, 10 to 15 years ago this would have been a benchmark beer. Comments about it skunkiness or negative hop aroma are related to its state at purchase, not in its overall quality. Look, this beer deserves respect as a grandaddy if nothing else.

This would be a lot better if it weren't for the trademark skunkiness. Decent hop bitterness, still slightly cheap tasting. Not worth the prices.

Very pale & golden coloured. Light lacing. Sweet aroma. Light tasting, with some hop flavour.

Now this is what I think of when I think of beer....looks and smells great. Can be a little skunky...but how can you resist the mini-keg cans?

A cut above the domestic yellow fizzy beers. This beer pours golden with a decent head. Unlike the macro swill this beer has a head that is retained and actually has some lacing. Skunky, hoppy aroma is followed by a skunky flavor with a light dash of hop bitterness. This is one of the beers I will look for at baseball games. Decent.

Overall a good beer I like the flavor, and I like the aroma and appearance. I could drink this almost every night of the week and I usually do.

The aroma was a bit sour, and lightly hoppy. The appearance is a clear gold, with a thin bubbly head. The flavor is hoppy, with a slight hint of bubble gum??? The beer is crisp and clean. Overall average at best.

Yellow, head dissipated quickly. Slightly sweet with a dry finish. Mass produced + heavily advertised = less than average beer.

one of my preferred beers- i didnt like it at first, but alot of my buddies drink it so i bummed beers off of them and eventually developed a taste for it. when i want a heineken, there is nothing that can beat it. also one of the more overpriced beers, here in NC it goes up to 14.99 a 12, which is rediculous, however i got me one tonight for 9.99 :) needless to say i am enjoying it.

If its 100% barley, why does it taste like corn? If Stella Artois is the Bud of Belgium, this one is the Bud of Europe. Once considered a super-premium import here, it now ranks much lower thanks to our rising sophistication. Boring, bland and uninspired.
