330ml bottle at a work function. I haven’t handed out a 0.5 rating in years, but this is quite possibly the worst beer I have ever had. The aroma is burningly alcoholic, oddly enough for a beer that is only 4% ABV, and reminiscent of cheap bourbon. There is no noticeable hops flavour or aroma, the mouthfeel is like oily cardboard, and there is powerfully unpleasant hot, alcoholic and oily hit in the finish that reminds me of shotting cheap vodka. I only drank this because I was driving and thought it might be wise to stick to light beer. All in all I think I would have been better off just getting done for DUI.

Out with the family in Frankie and Benny’s with limited choice so needs must watered down version of regular Stella metallic taste decent colour with a malty twang bland but ok for the style.

290116. Bottle from BWS. I had the 3.5% version of this but I don’t think that it would have mattered if it was 10% it would still have tasted just as bad. Can’t really find anything good to say about this beer so I will leave it at that I think.

kermis (9559) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 20, 2015
Can drank out of boredom on an Easyjet flight. Pours clear golden with a big white head into my quality plastic cup. Aroma of grain, cardboard, light malt and not very much else. Flavour is the expected light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with over moderate carbonation. Nothing interesting here, but at least I’ll be in Berlin soon..

Can at home. Pours clear yellow, smoother than most industrial lagers but still pretty tasteless.

Lore (1931) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 20, 2014
Clear golden colour, correct white head; aroma and taste is dominated by maltyness with floral hops - much better than the stella brewed in Hungary
