UPDATED: MAY 14, 2010 Tap: Golden in color with ample head and lacing. Tasted the malts and the hops provided a crisp finish. Clean enjoyable lager.

Tap: Poured a golden colored beer with a nice foamy white head. Aroma is mostly light floral with some malt. Taste is very light and refreshing with again some malt and floral aspect coming through. Medium carbonation with light body. Very little else to mention for this beer apart from the fact that it seems to be better on tap then in bottle. Overall, a refreshing session-type lager.

A beer I didn’t much like when younger -- many mass market beer drinkers mistake the hoppy aroma for skunkiness. Nice and clean but not spectacular.

I didnt used to be a fan, but the last time i tried it, i quite liked it. there is nothing remarkable about Stella, but it isnt horrid.

The Belgians certainly know what they are doing when it comes to brewing beer. A very nice light aromatic lager that goes down smoother than any lager I have tasted. Add a lemon wedge for enhanced flavor.

The good thing about this crappy beer is that it doesn’t have a nasty corn/metal finish to it like BMC. It seems they have covered it up with a malty sweetness. A very middle of the road beer.

Not alot of aroma, beer was poured cold from a tap. Was a nice surprise for a mass marketed beer. Slight bitterness start to finish. Nice

This beer reeked of skunk apon opening. Faint grain/hop aroma. Taste pretty bland with some hop tingle. Weak malt flavor. Somewhat crisp. Overall, blah.

ok. i pounded this and a warsteiner at the same concert. both on tap, and pretty fresh. this beer loses. it might as well be PBR or Old Style. drinkable, poundable, but not soul quenching. ok. thin on the flavor, but not on the palate. i bet this would be good with chips, though. THE SHAH SLEEPS IN LEE HARVEY’S GRAVE.

Fairly decent clean tasting beer. Wish I could find it a bit more often around here! Sadly can’t. Has a bit of eau de skunk to the odour and flavour, but chilled down on a hot day it can’t be beaten.
