Solid lager. Slightly bitter but not overwhelming. Best when served quite cold. Watch the sell by date. The closer the bottle is, there’s a tendency to get quite bitter and unpalatable.

Hmright (101) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Hyped as some sort of crazy alcohol content super beer. Not really that impressive. Kinda sweet, with a bitter finish. Hoppy with a honey hint of flavor. Not looking forward to taking the next sip, but had to choke it down for the price.

(draft) I asked for a Belgian and got this awful thing. I don’t like lagers, and this was a pretty bad lager. Bland mixed with boring.

Burner (78) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 28, 2004
Nice lager if you care for the full bodied bitter type. Sampled at Ferryman’s Pub at the waterfront in a gold rimmed girlie lager glass!! Nice medium bodied flavour for a draft with a fantastic hoppy taste hitting you half way through a mouthful. Have had it out the bottle as well, which seems to have a higher ABV 5.6% i think, if it’snt chilled it is quite bitter. but none the less a nice beer to drink on any ordinary occasion

Dorqui (2127) - Brescia, ITALY - NOV 23, 2004
Shining color. Compact foam but not much long one. Bitter with flavor of malt. Balanced.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 23, 2004
Light golden colouration, pretty standard appearance. Floral hop and light honeyish aroma, some lemon detected. Flavour, light malt, drying bitterness and floral, citrus hoppiness. Very average

fidemaster (286) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - NOV 13, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Stella is an ok beer but I find it bland, and boring. I know in Europe it has a great name, but i think its just average.

ALLOVATE (2549) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2005 Tasted, notably, at a romantic dinner to please my fiancé and poured into a stem glass. Glowed a clear gold with large irregular bubbles failing to form a head. Watery thin and overly carbonation leafy corn lager that made me wish I had ordered a glass of wine. Became a little sweet and cloying when it warmed. Bland and lifeless, massively advertised Macro-stew of a beer that didn’t even sit well with my food!!!

Indra (2693) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2004
I tried diligently to avoid consuming this beer on my trip to Europe, but when our dinner plans fell through and we found ourselves at the emergency backup dinner establishment, this was all they had besides Bud, Michelob and 255ml bottles of Castlemaine, and I was way burned out on soft drinks...

Anyway, aroma is very faint, just a little sweet, light maltiness and floral hop character. Light-medium yellow color, very bubbly, average head. Flavor is dry, malty and lightly bitter, clean and having a very light amount of hop flavor. Balanced, I suppose, and not offensive, really. Palate is crisp, the body is undoubtedly light. Just sort of a generic "beer" type of drink.

I paid 3 bucks to add this notch to my beltloop, and at least it wasn’t a 300 dollar call girl who didn’t have 3 inputs. Pale yellow with medium head and some lacing, which gave this a 2 for appearance. Aroma of mild hopcit, and a noticable thiosulfate skunk odor. Tastes rather bland, with some hopcit, and a fairly crisp, smooth finish. I won’t buy this again, and with all the great Belgian beers out there, I can’t understand why this is so huge in Europe....
